Latest Whisky News | GlenDronach releases Batch 10 of its single cask bottlings | 15th July, 2014

GlenDronach releases Batch 10 of its single cask bottlings | 15th July, 2014

AWARD-WINNING GlenDronach Distillery has today (July 14th) released Batch 10 of its renowned single cask bottlings.

Nine outstanding casks, ranging from 1990 to 2002, were selected by Master Distiller Billy Walker. Each one of these casks from the Aberdeenshire distillery is an excellent example of the typical GlenDronach character with tastes of sweet dates, raisins, dark chocolate, toasted oak spice and roasted coffee beans.

The cask details are:

1990 cask # 2970 / 24 Years Old / Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon / 51.3%

1991 cask # 1346 / 22 Years Old / Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon / 52.1%

1992 cask # 199 / 22 Years Old / Oloroso Sherry Butt / 59.4%

1993 cask # 494 / 21 Years Old / Oloroso Sherry Butt / 55.8%

1994 cask # 326 / 19 Years Old / Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon / 53.5%

1994 cask # 3397 / 19 Years Old / Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon / 53.8%

1995 cask # 3025 / 18 Years Old / Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon / 51.1%

1996 cask # 1487 / 18 Years Old / Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon / 54.1%

2002 cask # 1500 / 12 Years Old / Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon / 56.7%

Master Distiller Billy Walker said: “Our batch releases of single casks bottlings are eagerly awaited by whisky connoisseurs worldwide and Batch 10 is truly astonishing in both its quality and style.

“Each cask was selected because of its excellent GlenDronach character. For example, on the nose, 1990 cask # 2970 has generous dustings of allspice over sundried raisins and roasted coffee beans with a delicate barley background. As a contrast, the 1995 cask # 3025 shows fresh green apple developing to prunes and raisins with a vibrant spice note of ginger, black pepper and soft clove oil on the palate.

“And the youngest expression of the nine, 2002 cask # 1500, gives aromas of sweet figs and chocolate-covered raisins dusted with vanilla and spiced by subtle cigar smoke, candied peel and stem ginger. A fascinating range of expressions that will appeal to all tastes.”
