Glendronach Cask Strength Batch 9
The Glendronach Cask Strength Batch 9 was matured in Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks and was bottled with its natural colour and at cask strength of 59.4% ABV. The press release does not reveal how long the whisky was matured in the casks before Master Blender DR. Rachel Barrie selected and married them for this edition.
Glendronach recommends to add a drop or two of water to get a “cornucopia of flavour”, from treacle toffee and toasted brioche filled with raisins to baked apple and bramble pie and star anise.
Appearance: Deep copper
Nose: Cocoa, liquorice root and baked orange on a base of sultana bread and crème brûlée.
Palate: Treacle toffee and raisin-filled toasted brioche crescendo to baked apple and bramble pie, butterscotch and star anise.
Finish: Layers of richly roasted malt, and a lingering dark chocolate, espresso finish.
