Stop! Wait a minute… get your cup and put this liquor in it… take a sip… you will thank us later… Angus, get this Scotch!    
 
James Allardice was the second person to apply for a license to distill Whisky 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 Whisky 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 BenRiach 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… We're sold!   
 
If you want your Whisky to set off the smoke alarm as you pull bits of charred oak from your teeth, this is not your dram. If, on the other hand, you want to taste the revival of a historic, Highland Single Malt brought back to its heritage of excellent distillation, premium components, and proper maturation in Oloroso Sherry casks… you are going to LOVE this gorgeous Scotch.   
 
Some Whisky can be said to have "body." If put into a beauty competition context, The GlenDronach 18 will make all its competition bite their lips with envy. It really is a beauty. This Whisky pours like amber-gold watercolor in the rain. Richness? When Warren Buffet needs advice he calls Billy Walker — Whisky legend and master blender at The GlenDronach. The color is right, the aroma is right, the palate is right, the finish is right … smooth and pleasantly sweet with cherried-walnuts and a long, lingering caress at the finish.

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.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
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.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
All of the workers at GlenDronach lived on site, including the distillery manager, staff, excise man, brewer and all of their families.
