Glendronach, in the Deveron area of Speyside, was taken over by BenRiach in 2008 and has since undergone somewhat of a renaissance. The new owners re-launched a core range of sherry cask matured whiskies which capture the classic old flavours.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Deep and rich with a startling clarity to the sherry. Almonds. Butterscotch and banana custard.
Palate: Rich and rounded with a tiny hint of oak. Plummy red fruits plus a crisp helping of green apple.
