The GlenDronach Parliament has been waiting 21 years for this moment to arrive, so take your time to savor this sweet, Sherried lass to reward your patience. 

James Allardice was the second person to apply for a license to distill Whiskey in Scotland, way back in 1826. Them’s some good times, my friend! Over the years, The GlenDronach has been owned by a veritable Who’s-Who of the historic lineage of Whiskey masters; from Walter Scott, to Captain Charles Grant, and William Teacher & Sons.   
 
The late 1990’s saw some troubled times for the proud distillery, and many thought that the Spirit suffered. But the good times roll again! The BeRaich Distillery Company bought out the property and has restored this Highland Single Malt to its former glory, and then some. Their entire Whisky line is "sherried," meaning matured only in Oloroso Sherry casks. Highland, Single Malt, sherry casks, proper aging… I’m sold!   

 
The GlenDronach 21YO Parliament is a lesson in maturation. Specifically, the incredible impact that premium barrels play. It is aged for a full 21 years in a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks — two of the most flavorful and intense Sherries coming out of Spain. If you like and love Sherried Whisky — if you like things fruit-forward and on the sweeter side — you are going to adore this one. 
 
But give this baby a little time. Let her rest in the glass for a bit with a splash of water. We know that you are eager, but take your time. She has been waiting 21 years for this moment to arrive, so let the moment linger. The older the Whisky, the more you should let it ripen in the glass. Pour your dram, add a splash of water, then gently cover and let sit one minute for each year of age. You will be surprised at the character this brings out of the Spirit. You will be rewarded with a thick, luscious mouth-feel and sweet complexity that will keep you coming back for more. 

And this bottle know what glory tastes like. It won Double Gold at San Francisco Spirits Competition 2017.
 
Smartass Corner:
GlenDronach 21 YO Parliament is not named after any political body. Evidently there has been a group of crows — "rooks" in the native tongue — that have lived near the distillery for decades. Any group or gathering of crows is called a "parliament," lending the name to the Whisky.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
All of the workers at GlenDronach lived on site, including the distillery manager, staff, excise man, brewer and all of their families.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
