Scottish Highlands distillery Glendronach has announced its rarest and oldest whisky yet.
GlenDronach 50 Years is the most representative of all GlenDronach single malt Scotch whiskies.
Distilled in 1971, aged for five decades in Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks, then transferred to a single Pedro Ximénez cask for its final maturation. Master Blender Rachel Barrie selected only a small number of casks for the final stage of this incredibly long journey, of which only 198 bottles were released worldwide.
Each of these bottles is a single malt of impeccable, rich and uncompromising character. It features layers of stone fruit, Crème Brulee, nuts and dark chocolate, with oaky undertones and subtle cereal notes.
The alcohol content is 43.8 % by volume. Each bottle is signed by master blender Rachel Barrie, individually numbered, presented in a luxurious leather box.
