GlenDronach The Hielan Tasting Notes
Appearance: Amber with a burnished copper glow.
Nose: Rounded waves of orange blossom and a citrus twist flow over buttery, golden sultanas, sundried raisins and ripe yellow plums; all dusted with a touch of vanilla.
Palate: Crisp, vibrant oak spices warm soaked sultanas, apricot jam and gingerbread; all rounded by delicate hints of butterscotch, cocoa and toasted almonds.
Overall: Classic sherry overtones with a contrasting crisp dimension demonstrate the complexity of the traditional Highland character.
