GlenDronach Traditionally

As you may have guessed from the name of this expression, GlenDronach is going back in time with Traditionally Peated. More specifically, about 200 years back, to the year 1826 when the distillery was founded, and it was common practice in the Highlands to burn peat in the kiln towards the end of the barley malting. For the whisky, the distillery has kept its traditional sherried style, marrying liquid from a range of Pedro Ximénez, Oloroso sherry and Port casks, all bottled up at 48% ABV.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Treacle, orange sweeties, set honey, liquorice and smoky oak.

Palate Flamed orange peel and maple syrup, with Scottish tablet, clove-studded orange and cooked plum.

Finish Smoked barley lingers alongside juicy forest fruits.

Reviews for GlenDronach Traditionally Peated
Mellow and flavoursome!
I love this! Smooth mellow whisky, with the peat flavour I like, possibly my new favourite dram, and the price is reasonable. Will definitely buy again!

“Peatiness”, But that’s about it. A rather clunky and inelegant expression of what could and should have been a well rounded, complex and punchy 48% whisky. I bought it on vacay in Phuket and regret it.

Just what I was looking for: a peated Speyside or Highland maybe finished in sherry casks, and high strength, no colouring or chill-filtering. This has a superb balance of peat smoke, sherry/port, and wood from the casks. MOM notes are pretty close, I'd perhaps add cocoa or very dark chocolate. A slightly dry finish, oakiness lingers nicely. Great stuff!

A bit pricey for what it offers
I have loved every Glendronach bottling I have tried and felt they were fairly priced.

This is not a bad whisky at all. Something not as heavily peated (around 20ppm more or less) is welcome on my shelf after trying all those heavily peated ones. It means other interesting notes get a chance to come through. Alas, it also shows this whisky is a little on the young side. In my opinion it needs a little longer in the cask to deserve the price tag.

Easy quaffing but lack of complexity for price.
The cask influences blend with the peat in a nice way..... BUT, I wish I could actually pick out some of those sherry and port notes. I expected this have layers but it's pretty one dimensional, and quite young/hot.

If this was about £12-£15 cheaper I'd not to many gripes and be happy quaffing it, but at £50 a bottle i think you can find more interesting stuff.

One to savour
Experience has taught me to be wary of £50 NAS whiskies but there was no need to worry with this Glendronach. The facts - it's a 48% triple wood - PX, Oloroso and Port - non-chillfiltered and no added colour - which gets it off to a great start! The MoM malt notes are pretty spot on but I would emphasise that the peat certainly doesn't dominate - it's a subtle background note - so if you're looking for a heavily peated dram, look elsewhere. My favourite thing is the blueberry / bramble muffin note on the finish. Really delicious and makes you want more. Dangerous!
