The GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 12

Unimaginably full-bodied, complex and elegant — Batch 12 is the last GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch The Whisky Club will ever release.

United Kingdom

Colour Deep bronze

Nose Rich mocha and creamy cappuccino meld with orange and raisin-filled fruit cake, cherry liqueur and sandalwood.

Palate A voluptuous swathe of velvety spice reveals dark chocolate tiramisu topped with flamed Seville orange peel, toasted almond and crystallised ginger.

Finish The lingering finale of amaretto-laced mocha, morello cherry and sultana on indulgent caramelised crème brûlée.


We’re sad to say the time’s finally come. GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 12 is the last batch of GlenDronach Cask Strength that The Whisky Club will ever release.

Thanks to our special relationship with The GlenDronach, we’ve been thrilled to be the exclusive home of this annual series, making sure Aussie whisky lovers don’t miss out on this legendary cult whisky.

The GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch series is bona fide unadulterated Sherry cask purity, and demand for this supremely rich and viscous liquid is through the roof. It’s no secret The GlenDronach are Sherry cask masters, and they’ve been steadfast in their commitment to crafting richly Sherried single malts using time-honoured methods passed down through generations for almost 200 years.

Matured slowly in Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso Sherry and bottled straight from the cask, without chill filtration or added colour and at 58.2% ABV, this heavily Sherried tour de force is brimming with raisin-filled fruit cake, Seville orange peel, cherry liqueur and dark chocolate tiramisu. And each sip delivers unimaginable full-bodied complexity, depth and elegance.

Whisky lovers who’ve managed to taste the incredible Batch 12 are raving, calling it the pinnacle Sherry experience and that our dear friend, Master Blender Dr. Barrie has truly hit it out of the park with Batch 12, eclipsing its already phenomenal predecessor.
