IN SHERRY CASKS 

The Glendronach 100% sherry cask matured Single Highland Malt is a sensory experience unique among malt whiskies. A big bodied, heart-warming spirit that fills the mouth with luscious sherry maltflavours. 

We only mature The Glendronach in sherry casks, butts and puncheons - casks that have previously been used to age sherry in Spain. When subsequently used to mature malt whisky, these casks impart a deep, dark gold colour and a delicious richness and roundness to the spirit.  Alas,  scarcity of supply and greater cost mean it is rare indeed nowadays to find a malt whisky 100% matured in sherry casks. 

At The Glendronach distillery, where hand-crafted methods have remained unchanged since 1826, time has shown that the old ways make the finest malt. Our babbling burn, traditional  malting floor,  great  wooden washbacks, coal-fired copper stills and stone maturation  houses  help  to  create  an unmistakable malt whisky. Watched over by the raucous rooks who have stood vigil over the  making  of  The  Glendronach  since distilling began, the whisky lazily ages until perfectly balanced and ready for drinking. 

It may take a full 15 years to draw out The Glendronach's  very  special  sherry  cask sweetness tinged with oak and peat smoke. But the wait, as you will discover, is worth it. 
 
COLOUR Deep ruby-red gold. NOSE-Huge sherry impact followed by a spicy, smoky, deep rich whisky flavour.
BODY Big bodied, velvety and luscious. 
 
PALATE  Very rich and complex, with an initial burst of sherry, malty and lightly peated, with lingering flavours of oak and smoke.
FINISH Long, rich-deeply warming.
