Review by The GlenDronach

Colour

Light gold. Freshly harvest straw.

Nose

Toasted oak elements which are so intense that smoky attributes emerge. Sweet and lush tropical fruits rise with prominence. Banana and cacao, with roasted coconut.

Palate

Spiced ginger and cinnamon cake with a beautiful smoky twist. Creamed desicated coconut and fresh buttered toast with a handful of hazelnuts on the side.

Conclusion

A glorious nut feast with superb depth.

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 Virgin Oak Wood Finish expression was initially matured in European oak and thereafter finished its maturation in a very small batch of Virgin Oak, which have given the whisky its own unique flavours and aromas.
