Premium and mouthwatering Highlander.
 
Three years after Whisky-making became legal in Scotland, in 1826, James Allardes set up his second distillery and started producing Guid Glendronach Single Malt. The place went through several hands, including Teachers and Sons, Chivas Brothers, and even Charles Grant, heir of Glenfiddich. Glendronach is known for its heavy and robust Spirits that spend their time exclusively in Sherry casks. They've been doing that since the inception, and they use the premium Pedro Ximenez barrels from Spain and Oloroso Sherry casks from Andalucía. Almost two centuries have passed, but Glendronach makes sure things are done the traditional way.
 
The Glendronach 16YO is a limited release for those who prefer an intense Sherry character in their Scotch and don't mind a higher price. It's a warm and rich expression and mixing it with anything would be a cardinal sin. The perfect place to enjoy it is definitely somewhere calm, dimmed, and in a company of a favorite person. Maybe add some jazz.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
