Re-release: Glendronach 14 yo virgin oak wood finish

Glendronach 14 yo

Glendronach is delighted to launch its new special edition 14 year old Virgin Oak Wood Finish.

It’s a re-release of the acclaimed Glendronach 14 year old Virgin Oak first issued in July 2010.

Bottled at 46%, non chill filtered and with natural colour, this delicious single malt was matured initially in European Oak casks and thereafter finished its maturation in a small batch of the finest Virgin Oak casks, giving the whisky its own unique flavours and aromas.

The result is a nutty, sweet and fruity dram bursting with banana, melon and coconut.

Sales Director Alistair Walker said: “Six years ago we broke new ground by releasing four new GlenDronach Wood Finishes, the first to be released by the distillery in its 180-year history.

“They were warmly received worldwide so today we’re re-releasing the 14YO Virgin Oak Wood Finish and I’m confident it will win even more fans.”

Tasting notes according to the distillery:

Light gold. Freshly harvest straw.

Toasted oak elements which are so intense that smoky attributes emerge. Sweet and lush tropical fruits rise with prominence. Banana and cacao, with roasted coconut.

Spiced ginger and cinnamon cake with a beautiful smoky twist. Creamed desiccated coconut and fresh buttered toast with a handful of hazelnuts on the side.

A glorious nut feast with superb depth.
