GlenDronach 43 years 1971 - 2014 Single Cask #2920

The founding of The GlenDronach distillery took place in 1826 in the town of Forgue near Huntly in the Highlands, Scotland. With almost 200 years of experience, The GlenDronach distillery is one of the oldest in the Highlands and a truly traditional distillery that still mainly uses maturation in sherry casks.

Since 2007, The GlenDronach has presented a series under the name: Single Cask whiskies. Batch 11 was launched in January 2014 and this 43-year-old Single Cask Whisky was the oldest release from this batch.

True to their tradition, The GlenDronach primarily uses carefully selected sherry casks hand-crafted at renowned sherry bodegas from southern Spain (Jerez de la Frontera and Sanlúcar de Barrameda) 

Origin and bottling

Distilled on 25 February of the year 1971 and finally bottled in November 2014 after a maturation of over 43 years. This Single Cask Whisky is the perfect example of craftsmanship from this renowned Highlands distillery. After very careful selection, cask 2920 was selected and finally bottled at cask strength without colouring and filtering. This has resulted in 523 bottles of liquid gold.

Cask type

This single cask whisky has spent over four decades on a Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon. This cask has allowed this GlenDronach to gain unparalleled depth and enormous complexity.

The GlenDronach 43 years 1971 - 2014 Single Cask #1436 has an average score of 93.81/100 points on WhiskyBase 

Tasting Notes according to GlenDronach

Appearance

Rich crimson through dark amber 

Nose

A robust combination of rich prune syrup and blackberry jam with deep dunnage characters, sweetened by hints of mocha and a dusting of cinnamon.

Palate

Intense treacle toffee floods over sour plums and roasted coffee. Harmonising waves of leather and tobacco give great depth and are balanced perfectly by a subtle toasted walnut and date back note.
