This is the third Glendronach bottle in the unofficial Star Wars trilogy: Luke Skywalker. The Professional Danish Whisky Retailers ordered 3,000 bottles of this 10 years old exclusively for the Danish market. In 1826 the exuberant and extroverted James Allardice founded the distillery and produced his 'Guid GlenDronach' single malt. There was a period where the distillery was mothballed between 1996 and 2002. However in 2008, nothing less than a complete renaissance began. The BenRiach Distillery Company became GlenDronach's proud new owner. Nose: caramel, roasted coffee beans (a little bitter!), freshly sawed plands and dark fruit. Hazelnuts and roasted almonds. Palate: very sweet and soft on the spices. A little bit of pepper and a pinch of nutmeg, but far from piquant. The fruit shines through but mid-palate it gets a bitter note from the wood. Finish: wonderfully long and spicy and dry.
