Next stop on my Glendronach journey is the 18 year old ALLARDICE.
Exclusively matured in the finest Spanish Oloroso sherry casks. This Highland Single malt Scotch whisky is the sherry bomb that I love. Non chill filtered with natural colour. The way nature intended it to be.
Bottled at 46% alcohol per volume
On the nose
The sweet smell of Xmas cake soaked in brandy. Caramel fudge with vanilla and spice. You can sit and nose this one for hours and just enjoy the lovely aromas that reminds you of Xmas and family and holidays.
The taste tests
The Oloroso sherry is prominent. Sweet raisins. Dried fruit stewing on the pot with some spice. Nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon. Some dark chocolate and marmalade.
