On Tuesday, The GlenDronach Distillery announced the 11th release of its Cask Strength Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
The GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 11 is a sherried Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky aged in Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks.
“This eleventh batch of The GlenDronach Cask Strength embodies The GlenDronach‘s celebrated style of Spanish Oak maturation in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucía,” Master Blender Rachel Barrie said in a news release. “Add a drop or two of water to this latest expression to reveal a cornucopia of flavor – from richly spiced bramble wine and treacle toffee, to lingering Seville orange peel and nutmeg layered with caramel and maraschino cherry.”
The GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 11 is bottled at 59.8% ABV. It is available in the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $100.
