Spot-on perfect after dinner dram with rich and complex notes of Sherry-influenced glory.

GlenDronach Distillery 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 acquired from Pernod Ricard by the BenRiach Distillery Company. GlenDronach has won a lot of awards across their wide range of superlative releases. 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.

GlenDronach has produced a series of cask strength releases over the years. GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 8 is one of our favorites for all the right reasons. It is a classic Single Malt from the central Highlands aged in 100% Spanish Sherry casks Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso. And it is bottled at 61% ABV to boot so there is nothing at all standing between your taste buds and this luscious dram. We recommend just a spoonful of water to let the flavors bloom like a highland rose.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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 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.
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.
