If you were to draw a target to bulls-eye what a Highland, single-malt Whisky should be it would be shaped like Glendronach 8 YO Hielan.
was founded in 1826
by James Allardice
whose name is still proudly displayed on the bottle. They are smack dab in the middle of the Highland action. Over the nearly 200 years of their history, this traditional distillery has been bought, sold, and traded more times than a Chicago politician. But in 2008
they were rescued from the Dark Lords of Pernod Ricard by the BenRiach Distillery Company
—God bless ‘em.
Glendronach currently has 14 single-malt expressions in their core line up. Yes, they have won a lot of awards. But the best award—and the only one you probably care about—is that they have a devoted cadre of followers who make a spirit of the Glendronach line their own, personal, daily dram.
In the Doric dialect
Hielan means “Highland”
… makes sense, right? And that is EXACTLY
what you have here—a classic single-malt expression from the Highlands. Eight years old,
aged in Bourbon
and Sherry casks,
bottled at the magical 46% ABV,
never chill-filtered, no artificial colors. Boom!
If you were to draw a target to bulls-eye what a Highland, single-malt Whisky should be it would be shaped like Glendronach 8 YO Hielan. Everything is spot-on with a creamy texture to boot. Cheers to the men of Glendronach!
