GlenDronach is launching a new Highland single malt, which has matured in Sherry casks for 25 years.
The GlenDronach 1993 Master Vintage expression was created using whisky matured in a combination of Pedro Ximénez and oloroso Sherry casks laid down in 1993, which were chosen by the distillery to ‘showcase and celebrate this exceptional year’.
The expression was bottled non-chill-filtered and without added colouring at 48.2% abv.
GlenDronach master blender Dr Rachel Barrie described the expression as having ‘rich brandy-laced fruitcake on the nose, cocoa-dusted coffee and sultana brioche on the palate and lingering pecan toffee notes in the finish’.
She credits the slow maturation of the whisky in Andalucian casks for giving the expression ‘profound layers of depth and complexity, leading to an exceedingly long, voluptuous and memorable finish’.
GlenDronach Master Vintage 1993 is now available to purchase for £250 a bottle at specialist retailers worldwide, and will launch in the US in October.
