Glen Dronach has launched batch 4 of its luscious Cask Strength Highland single malt.

Bottled at 54.7% and comprising 17,806 bottles, The GlenDronach Cask Strength is a delicious, creamy sherry bomb! The whisky sensationally explodes on the palate with dark fruit, ginger and oak flavours at the fore, and with gingerbread, barley, roasted coffee beans and a hint of walnut softening to a long, satisfying finish.

Sales Director Alistair Walker said: "The whisky for this fourth edition in our renowned series has been carefully selected from a combination of the finest Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks. Non chill filtered and of natural colour, the Cask Strength has been produced in the classic GlenDronach style."

Master Blender Billy Walker's tasting notes show how batch 4 is destined to be a fantastic addition to this amazing series.

Colour - Dark rich amber with a glint of burnished copper.

Nose - Delicious molten toffee and wild honey poured over ripe figs and dates. Subtle hints of tangerine, coffee grounds and a dusting of cinnamon add a perfect balance to the nose.

Palate - Vibrant oak spices and warming stem ginger complement the rich sherry and dark fruit characteristics. Waves of sour plums and subtle gingerbread combine with stewed barley and roasted coffee beans, softened by a gentle hint of walnut.

Finish - A perfect harmony of the finest sherry casks and traditional Highland characteristics.
