Glendronach Cask Strength Batch 10 58.6% 70cl
Founded in 1826 by a group of farmers led by James Allardice, the Glendronach Distillery already had a solid reputation by the time it was nearly destroyed by fire only 11 years later. Allardice himself went bankrupt in 1842, so it was safe to say the business did not have the most positive of starts.
However, from 1852 onwards Glendronach rose like a phoenix from the ashes, becoming a highly sought after spirit for blending thanks to the judicious use of Sherry casks to provide rich ad dark fruit flavours. The popularity increased further when Billy Walker purchased the distillery from Pernod Ricard in 2008, accentuating the fruity nature, until Brown-Forman,owner of Jack Daniels, acquired it along with BenRiach and Glenglassaugh.
Glendronach can now be considered massively in-demand, so there's a good chance what little I managed to get my hands on will disappear quickly.
Bottled at 56.8%, this is a combination of Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso Sherry barrels that have been carefully married by Master Blender Rachel Barrie to provide an explosion of dark fruits, espresso, dark chocolate, hazelnuts and pecans, orange oil and a twist of black pepper. It's an incredible whisky that opens with just a touch of water - not much though - without losing any of the complexity.
