Glendronach 18 Year Old Tawny Port joins the distillery’s wood finishes range

As with the original release, Glendronach 18 Year Old Tawny Port Finish has been matured mostly in European oak casks before a finish in tawny port casks.

The 46% abv whisky is described as having notes of golden syrup, red fruit compote and red grapefruit.

Alistair Walker, sales director for the BenRiach-owned Glendronach, said: “We launched our wood finishes range four years ago and the response worldwide has been excellent.

“We’ve carefully selected whisky that has been gently maturing in lighter casks so that aficionados experience the full impact of the tawny port cask. The very pleasing result contributes extra depth and concentrated stewed fruit flavours. It’s another outstanding whisky that we’re delighted to add to our portfolio.”
