About the Whisky:

Matured in a combination of the finest Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks for a minimum of 21 years and bottled at 48% ABV, the ‘Parliament’ continues the great GlenDronach tradition of offering fruit-laden intensity in its single malts. This rich expression has been named ‘Parliament’ after the colony, or ‘parliament’, of rooks that have been nesting in the trees that overlook the GlenDronach distillery for almost 200 years.

96 proof

Tasting Notes:

APPEARANCE: Deep amber with a cherry wood sheen.
NOSE: A delicate mix of ripe autumnal fruits – notably blackberries and red plums. Rich Oloroso sherry and candied orange segments. Spiced oatmeal biscuits and toasted oak fragrances bring excellent weight and balance.
PALATE: Resolute flavours of fine Oloroso sherry and bitter chocolate sauce, which has been spread liberally over homemade plum pudding. This is all infused with fabulous spicy notes – cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Full bodied with smooth tannins.
FINISH: Long and lingering.

Awards/Reviews:
Double Gold - SF World Spirits Competition 2023, 2022

98 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023, 2022
"Rich fruitcake on the nose with sweet and spicy cloves leading to a balanced palate of dark chocolate, savoury notes and firm tannins giving complexity and balance and finishing on a long juicy raisin mouthfeel."

97 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"The deep amber hue and enticing toffee and cigar wrapper aromas hint at what's to come. The palate opens big and luscious, echoing toffee along with cocoa and leather, drying into an exceedingly long, complex finish that resounds with dried date, fig and cherry plus dusty cinnamon and cayenne spice."

94 Points, Excellent/Highly Recommended - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2022
"Rich and deep aromatics of sticky toffee pudding, toasted cinnamon, and apple tarte tatin dance in the ethers. Bold and full-bodied, with plenty of tertiary elements like old leather, charred earth, and dried bergamot. The finish is long, punctuated by peppercorn and clove."

93 Points - Whisky Advocate
"Part of the core range from GlenDronach, Parliament has been aged in a mix of oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks and is non-chill filtered. Quite sweet sherry on the nose, with fresh leather, nutty peach notes, cloves, and pepper. Rich sherried fruits on the full palate, with more pepper, ginger, and plain chocolate. The finish is long, with licorice and oak tannins. Not to be rushed!"
