The Glendronach distillery is known for their non-peated whisky that usually has a sherry influence. This expression is their first time in recent years putting out a peated whisky.
While it is peated and matured in ex-bourbon barrels, they still finish it in both Oloroso and PX sherry casks.
It is then bottled at 46% abv.
Natural color and non-chill filtered.
At 25ppm this is not too heavy on the peat so it's not a smoke bomb in any sense of the word, but it's enough peat to make this an interesting dram. Both Mike and I enjoyed this one a lot. (neat) but DO NOT recommend this one on ice!
The nose is fantastic and the mild, yet clingy peat smoke makes this an enjoyable dram that lasts on the palate for an extended time.

As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman.
