GlenDronach 21 Years Old Parliament Scotch Whisky
GlenDronach’s Parliament release is aged for at least 21 years in a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez (PX) sherry casks. ‘Parliament’ is a term to describe a particular group of birds. 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. Rooks are a member of the crow family, with silky blue black feathers and social temperaments. This Parliament release continues a legacy of traditional fruit-laden whiskies. With “Resolute flavours of fine Oloroso sherry and bitter chocolate…” the single malt won a Double Gold Medal at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
A 2011 release to fill a gap in the rapidly expanding Glendronach range and named for the Parliament of rooks that live in the trees near the distillery. A tasty combination of sherry matured whiskies, both Oloroso and PX, perfect for sherry-heads.
A 21 year old Glendronach released in 2011, and aged in a mix of sherry casks (Oloroso and sweet Pedro Ximenez dessert sherry). The result is really very good indeed. Interestingly enough, this whisky has no political associations. It is, in fact, named “Parliament” after the collective term for a group of rooks – and there is a Parliament of Rooks living in the trees near GlenDronach.
Matured in a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks for a minimum of 21 years, GlenDronach ‘Parliament’ is bottled at 48% without chill filtration or added colour.
Soft smoke and lemon juice, cedar wood, apple peel, toasty oak, soft earth, date and walnut cake and a hint of freshly made espresso.
Golden syrup, soft, juicy raisins, tangy oak notes, peach, cherry blossom, cocoa and honeydew melon.
Sherry tones lead the finish, with a hint of sulphur, chocolate, luscious fruit and pepper.
