GlenDronach Platinum 16 Year
**SELLING ON A BEHALF OF A PRIVATE CLIENT**
In 1826 James Allardice founded the distillery and produced his ‘Guid GlenDronach’ single malt. In 2004 three families, two being South African, purchased BenRiach. Then the same families (The BenRiach Distillery Company) bought the GlenDronach distillery in 2008. The GlenDronach Distillery has been creating richly sherried single malts for nearly 200 years.
As was the case in 1826, The GlenDronach Distillery patiently matures all its single malt whisky in superior quality sherry casks. Over the years of extended maturation, these carefully seasoned casks help create the unique richly sherried style that GlenDronach is famous for. So the whiskies have a deep amber to rich mahogany colour, while having the typical sherried styled characteristics; rich dried fruits, Christmas cake mix, stewed fruits and lovely warm spiciness.
The whisky selected for this special bottling has been matured for a minimum of 16 years in the finest Oloroso sherry casks. This superb expression is a fantastic representation of the unique richly sherried style for which GlenDronach is famous. Bottled at 48% this whisky is non chill filtered and of natural colour.
Soft, spicy and rich with lovely spicy stewed fruits and cinnamoned apples.
Smooth and spicy (tip and side of tongue) while also being dry and astringent, but not overly so.
Very rich and drying finish, combined with the ‘warm heart’, makes it long and satisfying.
