About this deal

Pre-1996 distilled Glendronach like this also has a gentle peat influence due to its use in the first few hours in the malt kiln when the distillery still did its own in-house malting. That gap of six years forces GlenDronach to use older whisky than necessary, because when Billy Walker acquired the distillery in 2008, he decided upon an extensive core range with age statements. If you have had the pleasure of tasting this whisky before then you’ll already know how fantastic it truly is.

My ex-wife and I (married at the time) went out for a nice dinner and I decided to treat myself with something I’d never had and when I looked at the menu this stuck out since I’d had the 12 and the 15. Remarkable flavours of stewed fruits and all-spice marry together with classic aged Oloroso sherry and toasted walnut bread combined with chocolate. Having tried this side by side with the rest of the range I'd say this is the best bang for buck, but it's not particularly cheap for an 18 year old whisky.All Glendronach whiskies are matured in ex sherry barrels, but several different sorts are used, with the Allardice coming exclusively from Oloroso barrels. Rich and dark, it has remarkable flavours of stewed fruits and all-spice married together with classical aged Oloroso. Commande effectuée le 13 avril, livraison prévue pour le 21 avril mais bonne surprise, elle est arrivée ce matin dans ma boîte aux lettres. Nose: Sweet aromatics of fudge and muscovado sugar, Fruit compote and glacier morello cherries provide added complexity.

GlenDronach has made a great reputation with its sherry matured whisky, offering quality drams with age statements. The GlenDronach 18 years old has been named after the renowned founder of the distillery, James Allardice.Taste: Thick mouthfeel with big notes of coffee and mocha, but also dark chocolate, some nutmeg and a pinch of black pepper. The GlenDronach Allardice Aged 18 Years is a complex expression with dark treacle, allspice and walnut notes carrying on into the long, lingering finish. GlenDronach Distillery was founded in 1826, near Huntly Aberdeenshire, making the distillery one of the oldest in Scotland.
