The bottler's tasting note: Delicate sherry influences with stewed apple and pear aromas. An underlying hint of menthol lingers. The palate is sweet with tangerine and strawberry flavours, complemented by a creamy milk chocolate edge.

Glenesk is one of the many distilleries which are now silent forever. In its time it went by several names; Highland Esk, North Esk, Montrose, Esk, Hillside, and Glenesk.
