This Glendronach 21 Year Old 1995 was distilled in the Scottish Highlands before being matured in a Pedro Ximenez cask for 21 years. It was then bottled in 2016 at a cask strength of 53.4% and released as a Taiwanese exclusive. No chill-filtration was used in the making of this beautiful whisky and it is one that is increasingly hard to come by today.
The Glendronach distillery was founded in 1826 by James Allardes. It was the second distillery to apply for permit that allowed them to legally produce whisky under the Excise act of 1823. It was purchased by Teachers and Sons in the 1960s and they added four new stills, increasing the total number to 6. The distillery was mothballed in 1996 before being reopened by Allied Distillers in 2001. It then changed hands on several other occasions before ending up with the Brown-Forman Corporation in 2016. Over the years they have produced many excellent single-malt expressions, most of which have been matured in some form of Sherry cask.
