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 Ximenez, Oloroso sherry and Port casks, all bottled up at 48% ABV.
- Color: Dark amber
- Aroma: Much more fruity on entry, with orange peel, juicy cherries and sultanas, smoked apricot, and toasted currants. Some clove and nutmeg too, along with dusty dark chocolate and some black tea and a touch of tobacco leaf.
- Palate: Those rich, juicy fruits linger, with romantic smoke and some charred wood.
