Highland distillery GlenDronach has unveiled its first expression exclusive to global travel retail, GlenDronach Forgue.
Forgue is a 10-year-old single malt matured in a combination of oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks, and bottled at 43% abv.
The whisky is said to contain notes of ‘brambles, fruit and oak’ on the palate with ‘a lingering finish of orange laced tobacco and ground nutmeg’.
GlenDronach Forgue is named after Scotland's Forgue valley, in which the GlenDronach distillery is located.
Rachel Barrie, master blender for the GlenDronach distillery, said: ‘GlenDronach is a distillery known across the globe for its Sherry cask maturation expertise.
‘It is an honour to carry on this tradition through sharing our first ever travel retail exclusive release from the valley of Forgue with world travellers.’
Available globally, the whisky retails for around £60 or US$77.
The new expression arrives only days after GlenDronach’s last release, GlenDronach Revival, a 15-year-old single malt that had been absent from shelves for the last three years.
