The GlenDronach Batch 16 features 15 limited-edition single cask whiskies

The majority of whiskies in Batch 16, which range from 11 to 28 years old, have been aged in Spanish oak Pedro Ximinez and oloroso Sherry casks – except for one that was matured in a Port pipe.

Rachel Barrie, GlenDronach master blender, said: “The Batch 16 cask selection showcases facets of the GlenDronach house style; robust, elegant, fruity and full-bodied.

“Each cask individually demonstrates the finesse, powerful complexity and rich layers of Sherry cask maturation found in every GlenDronach expression; from the 28-year-old Sherry butt distilled in November 1989 with the robust, mellow maturity of rich fruitcake and smoked walnut, to the 22-year-old PX puncheon distilled in June 1995 with sweet treacle toffee and manuka honey.

“At the other end of the age spectrum, the 11-year-old PX distilled in January 2006 balances sweet and dry complexity as nutmeg-spiced bramble toffee bursts on a velvet wave of cocoa.”
