Sherry Christmas everyone! Safe to say we have saved a real treat for Christmas day with this sherried cask strength whisky all the way from the Valley of Forgue in the east Highland hills. Glendronach are masters of their trade and have been producing sherried whisky for just under 200 hundred years. Unlike some other distilleries who went through a period of decline, Glendronach has solidly stood the test of time. As, has their cask strength whisky, now on its 8th batch, with their 7th batch winning a Silver Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2018. Matured in Spanish oak Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucía, this spirit comes out a deep tawny gold. The palate is rich and luxurious with notes of velvety chocolate, caramel, coffee and Christmas cake fruits. The finish lingers with flavours of liquorice, espresso and cherry tobacco reflecting the flavours of post-feast snacks. A perfect nightcap for Christmas day.
From all of us here at The Really Good Whisky Company, we wish you a very Merry Whiskmas.
