The GlenDronach Aged 50 Years

Protected and nurtured in The GlenDronach’s warehouses for over half a century, this rare liquid’s survived floods, howling Highland winters, and hauntings by a Spanish ghost. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to purchase one of just 198 bottles in existence.

United Kingdom

Colour Antique mahogany chestnut

Nose Ripe dark cherry and plum, stone fruit, gentian, and smouldering tobacco, followed by bramble, orange, and cranberry.

Palate Dense undertones of dark chocolate, tobacco, and cocoa form an exquisite overture of flavour.

Finish A crescendo of elegant plum and luxurious black cherry, enrobed in a swathe of velvet espresso.


Distilled in 1971, this is one of the most significant Scotch whiskies ever released and the first-ever 50-year-old from Scotland’s undisputed Sherry cask connoisseurs.

The GlenDronach Aged 50 Years has been matured in Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from the Spanish bodegas of Jerez in Andalucía. With only a small number of casks chosen by Master Blender Dr Rachel Barrie to reach such an incredible age, they’ve been given a final maturation in a single Pedro Ximénez cask, then bottled at 43.8% ABV natural cask strength. There was only enough liquid to fill a mere 198 bottles.

Over the past fifty years, this whisky has gained an unimaginable level of richness and complexity, the result is a perfect symphony of ripe dark cherry and plum on the nose, a heavenly palate of dark chocolate, tobacco, and cocoa, and a decadent finish of plum, black cherry, and velvety espresso.

Every bottle of The GlenDronach Aged 50 years has been hand-numbered and is presented in a luxurious, genuine leather case accompanied by an embossed leather booklet detailing the distillery history, tasting notes, and unique craft.
