Glendronach Peated Port Wood
Released in 2017, this Glendronach Peated Port Wood, is a rare example of Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, made in the “old style”, from malted barley dried with Highland peat.
Inspired by the historical import of casked port into Scotland during the nineteenth century, the peated spirit has undergone a final maturation in the finest port pipes, from the Douro Valley in Portugal.
Glendronach Peated Port Wood Whisky Maker, Rachel Barrie, Tasting Notes :-
“The Glendronach Peated Port Wood may be considered a surprising expression from this distillery but keeping with historical styles. Peat imbues the spirit with regional notes of wood smoke and smouldering charcoal, layered over The Glendronach’s archetypal fruitiness. On the nose you can enjoy wild strawberries dusted with cinnamon sugar and crisp, tart cranberry juice, flooded with waves of Highland smoke, sweetening to a red berry compote, with rich, stewed barley and lingering, smouldering charcoal on the palate.”
