2006 Cask #3359 Aged 13 Years

56.7% ABV

This cask is part of the seventeenth release of The GlenDronach’s acclaimed Cask Bottling programme, which celebrates some of the finest examples of the distillery’s richly-sherried Highland Single Malt. Each expression has been bottled from a single cask, specially selected by our Master Blender, for its exceptional character.

Fourteen casks have been chosen, dating from 1990 to 2007, and each individually explores the sophistication, powerful intricacy and rich layers of Spanish sherry cask maturation found in every GlenDronach expression. From caramelised dates and baked banana bread in 1990 to baked blackberry and currants with dark chocolate in 1992, burnt raisin and Oloroso-soaked tobacco leaf in 1995 to baked apple pie and cinnamon in 2007.

The distinctive flavour and rich mouthfeel of each cask has developed during the slow maturation process. All fourteen casks are bottled without chill filtration for richness, at high strength and are naturally deep in colour.

652 bottles of cask #3359 have been released in Asia, Australia, Canada & New Zealand.

TASTING NOTES

APPEARANCE

Deep amber with an auburn hue.

NOSE

The beguiling heady fragrance of toasted cedarwood, crystallised orange and candied pear on a base of sandalwood, spiced bramble jam and honey-glazed apricot.

PALATE

Spiced pear and orange candy burst on the palate, becoming glazed toffee apple and chocolate- coated cherry. Savour the lingering fruity taste of red plum and blueberry.
