Glendronach Single Cask Offer

Batch 17 of Glendronach's single casks have finally arrived, made up of twelve heavily sherried expressions and two matured in Port pipes. This time, new owners Brown Forman have divvied up the allocations, much like their sister distillery Benriach did with their recent batch. Of the fourteen casks, we have six of the seven available that were exclusive to Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Canada (the other seven casks are exclusive to Europe). Kudos should go to Master Blender, Rachel Barrie for her contrasting selections, each showcasing a different aspect of Glendronach's house style - from robust, fruity and full-bodied to at times elegant. With prices set to maximum temptation, all bottlings are expected to sell fast.

When Jim Murray places Glendronach amongst “the Grand Crus of Scottish Malt Distilleries”, his praise is in part inspired by the amazing batches of Single Cask whiskies the distillery has been slowly sharing with the public.
Since 2009, the Master Distiller has been hand-picking annual selections to be bottled at natural strength, without colour or chill filtration. These whiskies date back as far as 1968. While there is a vast array of barrels, hogsheads, puncheons and butts to choose from, the trend has been towards impeccably clean Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso Sherry puncheons and butts, most of which share Glendronach’s typically luxurious profile. In some instances there is a fantasia of dates, honey, Demerara sugar, sweet molasses, mocha and fruit cake. As Murray himself has summed up, the collection is "Sulphurless, Sophisticated and Sensational". He has also pined over the sad reality that this sort of unblemished sherry purity is fast becoming a thing of the past.
