The Glendronach 21 Year Old Parliament
Bottled at 48%, this single malt is matured for 21 years in a combination of Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks which gives it a beautiful rich maple syrup colour. This whisky is named Parliament, the term given to a group of rooks which happen to live in the trees near the distillery.
Tasting Note by GlenDronach
Nose: A delicate mix of ripe autumnal fruits - notably blackberries and red plums. Rich Oloroso sherry and candied orange segments. Spiced oatmeal biscuits and toasted oak fragrances bring excellent weight and balance.
Palate: Resolute flavours of fine Oloroso sherry and bitter chocolate sauce, which has been spread liberally over homemade plum pudding. This is all infused with fabulous spicy notes - cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Full bodied with smooth tannins.
Finish: Long and lingering.
