Dram of the day; Glendronach Scotch Whisky 21 year old Parliament 48%

Whisky by taste: Rich Fruity Whisky

This whisky is matured in a combination of the finest  Pedro Ximenez  and Oloroso sherry casks for a minimum of 21 years, the 'Parliament' continues the Glendronach tradition of offering fruit-laden intensity in its single malts. Bottled at 48%, the 'Parliament' is non chill filtered and of natural colour.

Colour A Deep amber with a rich cherry wood sheen.

On the nose there is a delicate mix of ripe autumnal fruits - blackberries and red plums. the rich Oloroso sherry and candied orange segments. Spiced oatmeal biscuits and toasted oak fragrances bring excellent weight and balance to this fine dram.

The palate has resolute flavours of fine Oloroso sherry and bitter chocolate sauce, which has been spread liberally over plum pudding. This is all infused with fabulous spicy notes - cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Full bodied with smooth tannins.
The finish is long and lingering.
