Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 43%

One of the great Aberdeenshire whiskies, Glendronach distillery, and particularly the classic Glendronach 12-year-old, has led a rather chimerical existence over the last few decades.

Ironically, Glendronach Original has had various guises and cask recipes since it first appeared in the mid-1980s. It wasn't always full-sherried, certainly. In the same period a debate raged about such fundamentals as whether the distillery was Highland or Speyside.

At the time of writing there's a bit of a hoo-hah over this latest Glendronach 12-year-old which has dropped the Non Chill Filtered wording on the label. Our advice would be to taste it for yourself and decide. After all, it's still sherried Glendronach - so we're in no doubt it will continue to be a fine whisky.
