Another sherry bomb from Billy Walker

Glendronach Cask Strength
  • Glendronach Distillery, Forgue (Highlands)
  • NAS
  • 54.7% ABV
  • Pedro Ximenez & Oloroso sherry casks | 17,806 bottles
The fourth batch of Glendronach's Cask Strength expression is bottled at 54.7% alcohol and comprises 17,806 bottles, The GlenDronach Cask Strength is a delicious, creamy sherry bomb! The whisky sensationally explodes on the palate with dark fruit, ginger and oak flavours at the fore, and with gingerbread, barley, roasted coffee beans and a hint of walnut softening to a long, satisfying finish.


Official Tasting notes from Billy Walker

Colour: Dark rich amber with a glint of burnished copper.

Nose: Delicious molten toffee and wild honey poured over ripe figs and dates. Subtle hints of tangerine, coffee grounds and a dusting of cinnamon add a perfect balance to the nose.

Taste: Vibrant oak spices and warming stem ginger complement the rich sherry and dark fruit characteristics. Waves of sour plums and subtle gingerbread combine with stewed barley and roasted coffee beans, softened by a gentle hint of walnut.

Finish: A perfect harmony of the finest sherry casks and traditional Highland characteristics.

Sales Director Alistair Walker said: “The whisky for this fourth edition in our renowned series has been carefully selected from a combination of the finest Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks. Non chill filtered and of natural colour, the Cask Strength has been produced in the classic GlenDronach style.

Master of Malt has it online at £51.69
