This single malt has been part of GlenDronach's core range since it was launched in 2009 by the distillery's new, independent owners. It replaced the 15yo that was available in the 1990ies.
The nose is wonderfully sherried, with dark fruits such as raisins and figs, also chocolate, toffee and last but not least lots of rubber (in a good way but very distinct nevertheless).
The palate is full-bodied, rich and smooth - this is nice! Again there is coffee and some rubber. A certain spiciness prevails at the end of the tongue.
The finish is medium long and dry.
This is an excellent single malt, mostly thanks to the mighty palate and the sherried nose which, however, is a bit tainted by the distinct rubber influence.
