After a three year wait, the GlenDronach Revival Aged 15 Years now returns, at 46% ABV, non-chill filtered and of natural cask colour.
This relaunched expression embodies The GlenDronach signature style of Spanish Oak maturation in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucía. Over 15 years in the darkness of dunnage warehouses, the spirit has grown in stature, refinement and intensity.
The Glendronach 15 year old Revival has an exquisite balance of intensity and finesse. In flavour, intense notes of ripe dark fruits and manuka honey envelope into an elegant silk-velvet chocolate finish, reflecting the richly layered complexity of this iconic single malt.
Colour: Antique Bronze.
Nose: An intoxicating burst of maraschino cherry, ripe bramble and dark chocolate mint with hints of orange bitters and walnut liqueur.
Taste: Honey-glazed apricot and ripe fig with a crescendo of black cherry, angelica and muscovado.
Finish: Long and enveloping with dark manuka honey, herbal bitters and dark chocolate.
The original 15-year-old sherry cask matured expression was introduced by GlenDronach in the 1990s, bottled at 40% ABV. It ceased to be bottled until 2009, when GlenDronach Revival Aged 15 Years was released at 46% ABV.
Having built up a strong reputation as one of the very finest sherry cask matured malts, it was discontinued in 2015 due to supply constraints.
