Type: Single Malt
Region: Scotland – Highlands
Strength: 48% alc/vol
Matured in a combination of the finest Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks for a minimum of 21 years, the â€˜Parliament’ continues the great GlenDronach tradition of offering fruit-laden intensity in its single malts. This rich expression has been named â€˜Parliament’ after the colony, or parliament, of rooks that have been nesting in the trees that overlook the GlenDronach distillery for almost 200 years. Bottled at 48%, the â€˜Parliament’ is non chill filtered and of natural colour.
Nose: Stewed prunes, dates, muscovado sugar and, with time, raisin filled molasses-soaked fruit cake.
Palate: As with most beautifully balanced and crafted malts, the palate reflects the nose – unctuous, dense and PX sweet, then heavy toasted oak drenched in a mixed dark berry rumtopf.
Finish: Mocha, black liqorice and stewed raisins on the eternal finish.
