The first ever peated expression from GlenDronach whisky distillery. Created with a phenol level of 25 PPM, with the whisky starting it's life in ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.

GlenDronach Peated Tasting Notes
Appearance: Vivid harvest gold.
Nose: A delightful aroma of ripe gooseberries dusted with cinnamon sugar combines with a contrasting crisp citrus twist. The delicate peat influence gives a smouldering charred wood character filled with freshly ground barley and hints of vanilla toffee.
Palate: Vibrant oak spices and floral heather honey develop to rosehips and barley sugars, all warmed by a touch of white pepper. Subtle peat notes complement the palate by giving a delicate depth and dryness of glowing campfire embers.
Finish: A unique marriage of crisp fruit and barley-laden Highland characteristics surrounded by gentle peat smoke; an intriguing reminiscent of heather burning in the distant glens.
