GlenDronach 18 Year Old Allardice
Another great sherried whisky from Glendronach. Rich, full and chewy, loaded with fruit cake and spices. Yum!
The 18 Year Old expression of Glendronach has been named Allardice in honour of James Allardice, who founded the distillery in 1826. All Glendronach whiskies are matured in ex sherry barrels, but several different sorts are used, with the Allardice coming exclusively from Oloroso barrels.
We love this dram. The Oloroso sherry flavours of toasted nuts, dried fruits, walnut skins, orange oil and - amazingly - even red fruits are so beautifully balanced that we can sit and enjoy a glass for hours. A true meditation whisky.
