This is a rare peated expression from Glendronach that is peated to traditional levels and has all of the richly-sherried, full-bodied character of The GlenDronach. At the time the distillery was founded by James Allardice in 1826, it was traditional practice in the Highlands to burn peat in the kiln towards the end of the barley malting, creating a rich and warm, earthy smoke. Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie has crafted The GlenDronach Traditionally Peated from a marriage of the finest Pedro Ximénez, Oloroso sherry and port casks, using the same principles laid down almost two hundred years ago.
Nose - Highland toffee and treacle meld with dark honey and coal smoked barley.
