Grandeur in its finest form.. Glendronach of course.

I always look forward to pouring a dram of Glendronach and when it’s called Grandeur then my expectations are even higher, luckily they are rarely shattered when it comes down to Glendronach.. In Rachel we trust should actually be printed on the bottles these days as everything this Master blender is offering is quality, of…

Glendronach 15 – Revival.

It’s back !!! The beloved Glendronach 15 revival is back at last, discontinued a few years back when the distillery was struggling to find enough stocks to continue the production of this well loved expression and were having to use older stocks in order to meet demands. The Glendronach 15 sherry cask was first introduced…

Glendronach.. 2006, 1995 and 1989.. Batch 16

Glendronach Grandeur Batch 9.

As  I sit here pondering what else I can write about The Glendronach Distillery a pair of bullfinch land on the branches outside my window and just catch my glance for a few minutes ( well about 10-15 mins actually) and that’s kind of what it’s like when I sit down with a glass of…

Glendronach Kingsman

When a whisky is paired with a film you hope it’s going to be worthy of the title and that the film will actually be worth watching, so when Glendronach announced they were going to release a special bottling to celebrate the release for the film “The Kingsman, The Golden circle” I was thinking this…

Glendronach 12.

Glendronach…  Sherry… and big bold flavours and aromas just seem to go so well in the same sentence, but is it the same when we get down to the entry level expressions. This 12 yo whisky is matured in the same styles as some of the older expressions using the finest European oak that has…

GLENDRONACH 1985 (batch 14)

Let me tell you a little story, Towards the end of last year ( 2016) I was given the news I was to be made redundant, feeling totally down I returned home to find a package containing a number of samples and to say I was slightly stunned with the contents is a massive understatement!…

The Glendronach distillery has been gathering itself a big reputation of late for producing some of the finest sherry matured whisky you can buy.  Each year they release batches  of single cask whisky mostly matured in either Oloroso or Px sherry casks and the latest release ( released September 2016) is no exception.  So when I…
