Glendronach Parliament Single Malt 21 Years

A spirit gets its structure from the strength of the alcohol. As I don’t add water to my spirits – I drink mainly Single Malt, Cognac and brandy – 40% is almost always inadequate because the spirit lacks greater backbone. I am not suggesting that 40% never works, only that it usually doesn’t. It is, therefore, very reassuring that Glendronach only produces Single Malts between 43 and 48% alcohol. And that no colouring is added. Their whiskies are also non chill filtered and aged in sherry casks. Parliament
21 Years – part of their core range that includes 12 Years and 18 Years – has dried citrus peel notes, cinnamon spice, delicate Sherry sweetness, and a gentle oiliness. Deliciously balanced, 48% alcohol, it was aged in a mix of casks that had held Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez.
