GlenDronach 1996 17yo DBWS (70cl, 53.4%)

SW_SS_GLDR_002

A further bottling from the Dram Brothers Whisky Society Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg in cooperation with the Vinothek Massen. This bottling was sold out very quickly so it became a very rare bottling!! A must try for all Sherry-Matured-Whisky-Fans.  It is not a usual GlenDronach heavily sherried dram.  You have to taste yourself to find your proper opinion on this great sip.

Glendronach distillery is a Scottish whisky distillery located near Forgue, by Huntly, Aberdeenshire, in the Highland whisky district. It is owned by the BenRiach Distillery Company Ltd. The distillery was founded in 1826 by James Allardes as the second distillery to apply for a licence to legally produce whisky. The Glendronach distillery was purchased by Teachers and Sons Ltd around 1960 who increased the number of stills from two to six. In 1996 the distillery was mothballed and reopened again in 2001 by Allied Distillers Limited. In 2006 the distillery passed into the hands of Chivas Brothers Ltd and in 2008 it was sold to the BenRiach Distillery Company. The distillery draws its water from the Dronac burn within the distillery grounds. It has its own floor maltings and two wash stills in addition to two spirit stills.
