Review #81 | /r/Scotch Review #31 – The GlenDronach Cask Strength (Batch 3)
The Schtick: This is a NAS release from GlenDronach bottled at cask strength. It is quite a bit cheaper than their single casks ($85) which makes it a promising entry in their product line.
Distiller: The GlenDronach
Bottler: The GlenDronach
ABV: 54.8% ABV
Mashbill: Single Malt (Barley)
Source: Bottle, Purchased
Nose: Caramel, peanuts and peanut brittle, some sherry and woody notes.
Taste: There’s a good balance of sherry, wood and spice here. Some nougat-y, caramel notes followed by a light peanut brittle note at the end. Reminds me of a nice Payday bar in a bottle with some caramel and a high proof.
Finish: Medium and mildly hot but there’s a lot more sweetness in the finish. Some wood and spice and a light bit of vanilla and caramel.
Overall: I hadn’t heard a lot about this before I bought it but I’m glad I did. Well worth the price of the bottle and I’ll be very sad when it’s gone.
Thanks for reading!
