    Jim Murray's Tasting Notes:


    Looks like a PX butt at work here: the sugars, like the grape are crisp and tight, locking in both the vanilla and barley; t24 yep, def PX!! Those sugars...only a vivid spice can punch its way though. The midground offers up chocolate and toffee...for about five minutes...then raisin fudge; f24 total confirmation of PX...only now do we get the real picture, as the tightness loosens and the fruit begins to have some kind of a say. A little maple syrup and butterscotch tries to equal the spices; b23.5 helped by a superb, entirely sulphur free butt, this malt is as clean as it rich as it is memorable as it is excellent. 53.3%. 625 bottles. The Whisky Shop exclusive.


    A rich, smooth and elegant whisky which will not last long as stock is highly limited.


    The Whisky Shop Tasting notes:


    Deep amber/polished mahogany, indicating European oak maturation. The nose is prickly, but opens gradually to reveal moist Xmas cake (saturated in liquor!), baking spice and dark chocolate. A viscous texture, with a sweetish taste, drying elegantly and leaving an aftertaste of chewed pencils – and a warming glow.

    KNOWLEDGE BAR
    In 1826 the exuberant and extroverted James Allardice founded the distillery and produced his 'Guid GlenDronach' single malt. Down the years, the distillery he created has thrived under the stewardship of far-sighted investors like Walter Scott in 1847 and Captain Charles Grant in 1920.
