Original 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The GlenDronach Original has received gold medals at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2015, 2016 and 2017. As one of the richest, smoothest and best 12 Year Old Scotch whiskies on the market, this bottling sells out almost immediately whenever we are able to secure some.
Richly sherried from over a decade in Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez casks. Non-chill filtered and with no added colour, it’s creamy-textured and deeply warming. Opulent notes of Tokaji, toffee, toasted nuts, figs, cinnamon-raisin Danish swirls and baked orchard fruits are kept fresh by the bit of crunchy green apple and sugared orange and lemon jelly slices.
GlenDronach’s history has been a tumultuous one. Burned to the ground a decade after it was founded, bounced from hand to hand like a hot potato, mothballed and resurrected, it keeps coming back like the Terminator. However, since being taken under the wing of The Benriach Distillery Company and more recently Brown-Forman, things have settled down in the valley of Forgue, Aberdeenshire. Whisky maker Rachel Barrie has produced a procession of exceptional, richly sherried single malts, with each release displaying even more character than the last. Rachel Barrie’s father is particularly partial to a GlenDronach and she was raised just down the road, so this is one of the first distilleries she ever tasted and one that she is therefore incredibly passionate about.
