Glendronach Port Wood 46%
The GlenDronach Port Wood is inspired by the historical import of casked port into Scotland during the 19th century. The GlenDronach distillery was established in 1826 by founder James Allardice, at a time when both sherry and port were ‘de rigueur’, with the finest port pipes travelling along Portugal’s Douro River, destined for the wine cellars of Scotland’s gentry.
Made by our craftsmen using the same, time-honoured methods passed down through generations for almost two hundred years, The GlenDronach’s rich, full bodied Highland spirit has been matured in the distillery’s signature Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks, followed by a second maturation in some of the finest port pipes from the majestic Douro Valley of Portugal.
Expertly selected and married by The GlenDronach Master Blender, this fruit-filled ten-year-old expression offers layers upon layers of rich fruit flavour, rolling into a signature long, satisfying finish.
APPEARANCE: Intense cherry wood.
NOSE: Breathe in delightful waves of Victoria plum, bramble and strawberry jam with top notes of cherry blossom and honeysuckle on a base of sandalwood and ginger.
PALATE: Layers upon layers of rich fruits. Sip blackberry and roasted apple crumble with freshly baked gingerbread, developing into a baked orange and black cherry back-note.
CONCLUSION: Savour orange peel, sultana and cherry cake lingering into the richly fruity finish.
