In contrast to the traditional, non-peated character of The Glendronach, this particular whisky has, unusually, been distilled using peated malt barley.
The Glendronach 'Peated' pays homage to the peat historically used to dry the malted barley in the traditional floor maltings during the early days of the distillery.
The subtle peat notes in this intriguing expression complement the classic Gendronach Highland character and the rich sherry notes drawn from the wood.
Nose - A delightful aroma of ripe goosberries dusted with cinnamon sugar combines with a contrasting crisp citrus twist. The delicate peat influence gives a smouldering charred wood character filled with freshly ground barley and hints of vanilla toffee.
Palate - Vibrant oak spices and floral heather honey develop to rosehips and barley sugar, all warmed by a touch of white pepper. Subtle peat notes complement the palate by giving a delicate depth and dryness of glowing campfire embers.
Finish - A unique marriage of crisp fruit and barley-laden Highland characteristics surrounded by gentle peat smoke, intriguingly reminiscent of heather burning in the distant glens.
