It’s the end of an era. For the final time as Whisky of the Month, The GlenDronach Cask Strength is back – and we’ve eked out the lion’s share of Batch 11 to bring you a cracking good start to the New Year.

Since ascending the throne to become the quintessential Sherry-matured Scotch, there’s now a global shortage for The GlenDronach as demand has sky-rocketed. But for years The Club has been bringing The GlenDronach Cask Strength series to Members, so thanks to our perennial partnership with these connoisseurs of the Sherry cask we’ve got you covered.

As usual, this powerhouse has released a preeminent single malt: a robust and indulgently slow maturation first-fill fruit bomb that your fellow Clubbers won't be able to get enough of.  

“This eleventh batch of The GlenDronach Cask Strength embodies The GlenDronach‘s celebrated style of Spanish Oak maturation in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso Sherry casks from Andalucía,” says Dr Rachel Barrie, Master Blender of The GlenDronach, Benriach and Glenglassaugh distilleries since 2016. And she’s bringing this to the table at a whopping 59.8% ABV, non-chill filtered and natural in colour.

Unravel this iconic release from one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries, discovering a decadent and viscous array of dark honeyed treacle, chocolate-coated raisins, topped with lashings of maple syrup. And that’s not even the finish. With orange and clove liqueur and maraschino cherries, this full-bodied dram will be best enjoyed under a clear night sky in front of a campfire. Maybe even with a plate of lightly spiced Spanish doughnuts in hand.
