A 2015 addition to Glendronach's core range, this 8-year-old is named The Hielan. Aged in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, this is rich with notes of nuts, butterscotch and spice.Tasting Notes (1)
Producer's Tasting Notes
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.
Crisp, vibrant oak spices warm soaked sultanas, apricot jam and gingerbread; all rounded by delicate hints of butterscotch, cocoa and toasted almonds.
Classic sherry overtones with a contrasting crisp dimension demonstrate the complexity of the traditional Highland character.

Picked this up on a let's have a look see, as the profile sounded interesting and it was going to be discontinued at our BC liquor store and I'm so pleased I did. For an 8 yo this is fantastic. The tasting notes are a great guide, though I can't pick every single reference, overall it seems like it has all the notes and more. Orangey oak (that I love) on the nose, yes buttery or is that a brandy butter hmm, and the sultanas. On the palate soft oak, orange again, dried grapey fruits and the smooth creamy buttery vanilla. On the finish, as the lovely orangey oaky taste lingers quite long, a suggestion that you may have just drunk a sherry with it's hints of nuttiness comes in ….really nice and long. This is a bold youngster! Love that GD put this out with the 8 yo age statement, I'm 8 years and no BS about me, 46%, natural colour and non shill filtered, great. At the price this youngster definitely punches above its weight, and is better than many a 12 & 15 yr old! Well done GD.
Tried the flight of tastes, and I loved it at the Whiskey Tasting in Edinburgh, brought it home to NJ, and just shared it last night with new friends. Lovely neat. Appreciated by all.
Really really enjoyable young whisky! The nose is incredible, very intense and very rich in sweet and fruity aromas. The mouth-fill and finish have really impressed me!
Love Glendronach. Haven't had them all but favourite is Revival but can't get it at the moment. Bought this today from the Covent Garden shop to try and it's lovely. Not too sweet and for the price a nice dram. Would buy again.
Wonderful whisky, I tried the 8,12 and 15 yo from Glendronach and although I liked the 15 yo best, the 8 year old is still brilliant. It has a nice palate, with a lot of orange and citrus notes and a bit vanilla, I also really like the finish where you can reallly taste the oak. Glendronach is just a wonderful distillery who are not afraid to make a age statement and do not colour or chill filter their whisky.
