Review by The GlenDronach

Colour

Bright lemon straw.

Nose

Juicy and fresh. A blanket of creamed soda and wild strawberries backed up lush late harvest desert wine. Hints of sherbet and ripe cherries. Very fruity.

Palate

Apples and rhubarb drenched in homemade custard. Sweet desert wine influences emerge with ripe sultanas and a lovely creamy heart.

Conclusion

Sweet fresh and fragrant with balanced acidity. Lots of finesse and elegance, whilst still maintaining the lively youthful elements.

Note

July 2010 saw the release of 4 new GlenDronach Wood Finishes – the first of their kind to ever be released by the distillery in its 180 year history. The GlenDronach Sauternes Wood Finish expression was initially matured in European oak and thereafter finished its maturation in a very small batch of Sauternes wine barrels, which have given the whisky its own unique flavours and aromas.
