As you may have guessed from the name of this expression, GlenDronach is going back in time with Traditionally Peated. More specifically, about 200 years back, to the year 1826 when the distillery was founded, and it was common practice in the Highlands to burn peat in the kiln towards the end of the barley malting. For the whisky, the distillery has kept its traditional sherried style, marrying liquid from a range of Pedro Ximénez, Oloroso sherry and Port casks, all bottled up at 48% ABV.
Nose: Treacle, orange sweeties, set honey, liquorice and smoky oak.
Palate: Flamed orange peel and maple syrup, with Scottish tablet, clove-studded orange and cooked plum.
Finish: Smoked barley lingers alongside juicy forest fruits.
