GlenDronach 43 years 1971 - 2014 Single Cask #2920

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


Rich crimson through dark amber 


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


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.

Glendronach Distillery

Glendronach Distillery is located in the valley of Forgue, near Huntly in Aberdeenshire, in the Scottish Highlands. Founded in 1826 by James Allardice, Glendronach is one of the oldest legal distilleries in Scotland and is known for its rich tradition and craftsmanship.

A specific feature of Glendronach is its strong focus on maturing whisky in ex-sherry casks. This gives the whiskies their distinctive deep, complex and fruity flavour profiles, with notes of dark chocolate, dried fruit, honey and spices. The distillery uses water from the Dronac Burn, which contributes to its unique flavour.

Glendronach uses traditional copper pot stills and a slow distillation process, ensuring a rich and full-bodied spirit. Glendronach's whiskies are known for their elegance and depth, with a long, warming finish.

Glendronach Distillery remains a highly respected name among whisky lovers for its dedication to quality and tradition and its production of exceptionally balanced Highland single malts.
