Glendronach Parliament 21 Years Old 70cl 48°
This whisky won a bronze medal in the category Best Scotch Highlands Single Malt at the World Whiskies Awards 2019.
The 21-year-old Single Malt "Parliament" from the Glendronach distillery pays tribute to the parliament of rooks that has inhabited the trees on the Glendronach lands for almost 200 years and continues to watch over the distillery.
Released in October 2011, Glendronach Parliament 21 years old reveals a tasty combination of whiskies matured in Sherry casks, both Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez (sherry casks from Andalusia in Spain).
21-year-old Glendronach is a full-bodied scotch whisky with hints of wood, fruity intensity and greedy aromas.
This Single Malt is bottled at 48% and non chill-filtered.
This expression has been named the world's best Highland Single Malt whisky at the 2018 World Whisky Awards.
Glendronach means "valley of mulberries" in Gaelic. Located near the town of Huntly east of Speyside in Scotland. This distillery implements traditional methods of production (malting including drying partly with peat fire, as well as the heating of stills). This largely explains the powerful character and strong personality of his Single Malt.
Always very rich, Glendronach whisky is fully revealed in Sherry cask versions. It shows a perfect balance between the notes of Sherry, malted barley and fruits (red fruits).
Glendronach in East Speyside stands apart from other distilleries in the area. Its blackened stone buildings, pagodas and blood-red shutters immediately attract attention. The small stream that runs through the inner courtyard of the distillery reinforces its artisanal and traditional character.
Destroyed by a fire in 1837, it was rebuilt in 1852 and bought in 1920 by Charles Grant, son of the founder of Glenfiddich. Sold in 1960 to William Teacher & Son, it doubled its production capacity in 1966, the number of stills from two to four.
Until it was dormant in 1996, Glendronach was still malting some of its barley. Once again operational since May 14, 2002, its stills are still heated with coal.
Currently, Brown Forman (Jack Daniels) is the owner of the distillery. Rachel Barrie is the Malt Master of the 3 Glendronach, Benriach and Glenglassaugh distilleries.
