The GlenDronach Traditionally Peated

To honour The GlenDronach’s early whisky making heritage, Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie crafted The GlenDronach Traditionally Peated using the same principles laid down by our founder James Allardice almost two centuries ago. At this time, it was traditional practice in the Highlands to burn peat in the kiln towards the end of the barley malting, creating a rich and warm, earthy smoke. Interwoven with robust Highland characters, The GlenDronach Traditionally Peated is peated to those traditional levels and has all the full-bodied richness of The GlenDronach. Matured in the finest Pedro Ximénez, Oloroso sherry and Port casks. The expression is bottled at 48%, non-chill filtered and natural in colour.
  • Colour: Vivid harvest gold.
  • Nose: Highland toffee and treacle meld with dark honey and coal smoked barley.
  • Taste: Sip burnt orange and treacle on a base of cloves and smoked bramble.
  • Finish: Savour liquorice and dark fruit into the lingering rich, earthy finish.
Food Pairing: Cheese (eg, Blue Cheese*), Appetizer, and snacks *Because of the cheese’s creamy sweetness, which works perfectly to accentuate the pear notes and smoky flavour of the whisky. Together they tease out each other’s shades of spice, floral honey and barley sugar.
