The GlenDronach "The Hielan" 8 Years Old, is the youngest expression that is part of their core range. It has been matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks for at least 8 years. The Hielan’ encompasses a unique combination of sweet, buttery aromas with spicy, sherry overtones. It is a lighter whiskey than its 12 year old brother and has less of a sherried character, being more malty, peppery and nutty.

Non-chill filtered, of natural colour and bottled at 46%,  

70cl at 46% Vol.

TASTING NOTES


 

APPEARANCE

Amber with a burnished copper glow.

NOSE

Rounded waves of orange blossom and a citrus twist flow over buttery, golden sultanas, sundried raisins and ripe yellow plums; all dusted with a touch of vanilla.

PALATE

Crisp, vibrant oak spices warm soaked sultanas, apricot jam and gingerbread; all rounded by delicate hints of butterscotch, cocoa and toasted almonds.

FINISH 

Classic sherry overtones with a contrasting crisp dimension demonstrate the complexity of the traditional Highland character.
