About the Whisky:
After ceasing production in 2015, The GlenDronach Revival Aged 15 years now returns to the core range of the distillery's line-up. The expression embodies The GlenDronach's signature style of Spanish Sherry Cask maturation in fine Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucia, quietly growing in stature for 15 years in the darkness of our dunnage warehouses.
In flavour, the expression offers sumptuous notes of dark fruits, rich chocolate and manuka honey with an enveloping, memorable finish worthy of this monumental malt's history. This luxuriously sherried Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky is bottled at 46% ABV, non chill filtered and natural in colour.

Tasting Notes:
APPEARANCE: Antique Bronze.
NOSE: An intoxicating burst of maraschino cherry, ripe bramble and dark chocolate mint with hints of orange bitters and walnut liqueur.
PALATE: Honey-glazed apricot and ripe fig with a crescendo of black cherry, angelica and muscovado. Long and enveloping finish with dark manuka honey, herbal bitters and dark chocolate.

Double Gold - SF World Spirits Competition 2023

96 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023
"Spicy woodiness with indications of sherry cask and dark dried fruit characteristics on the nose combining with rich fruits, dates, raisins and Christmas cake flavours on the palate. Leather, figs, prunes and cloves with cinnamon and ginger towards the end."

94 Points, Finalist - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2021
"A luxurious nose of dark chocolate, espresso, maple cream, mint, and muddled orange peel belies a stately whisky. The palate offers exquisite notes of brown sugar, honey-roasted pecans, baked cherries, and fine cured meats which build into an equal parts salty, savory, and fruit-tinged finish."

Rank #8, Whisky Advocate Top 20 of 2018:
"GlenDronach 15 year old Revival went on hiatus three years ago due to a shortage. In 2018 it re-emerged with a new recipe, tweaked by master distiller Rachel Barrie. As before, a mixture of Pedro Ximenez and oloroso sherry casks has taken care of the aging process, and the result is one of the very best sherried single malts of its age on the market. The distillery's characteristic spice, fruit, and chocolate notes are here in abundance, merging seamlessly and with satisfying complexity to create a great after-dinner dram."
