The Glendronach Port Wood is inspired by the historical import of casked port into Scotland during the 19th century. During the 1800s, port was 'derigueur', and many of the finest prot pipes would travel from Portugal, down its Douro River, destined for the wine cellars of Scotlands gentry.
Whilst many years have since past, Portugal's majestic Douro Valley is still renowned for its exceptional Port. Glendronach have selected some of the finest port pipes to house The Glendronach for a second maturation period of three years. Their Master Blender has expertly combined the whisky from these port pipes to create a fruit-filled ten year old expression, with layers of ripe berries rolling into its signature long, lingering finish.
Nose - Waves of delightful Victoria plum, bramble and strawberry jam with top notes of cherry blossom and honeysuckle on a base of sandalwood and ginger.
Palate - Layers of rich fruits, blackberry and roasted apple crumble with freshly baked gingerbread, developing into a baked orange and black cherry back-note.
Finish - Orange peel, sultana and cherry cake lingering into a richly fruity finish.
