1968 Recherche

48.6% ABV

The GlenDronach ‘Recherché’ was distilled and filled to cask on September 24th, 1968. The ’68 stock represents the oldest whisky in GlenDronach’s warehouses, and GlenDronach 1968 cask # 005, an Oloroso sherry butt, was hand-picked to be bottled as ‘Recherché’. The name ‘Recherché’ has been chosen because it means ‘carefully sought out’. Bottled at cask strength, 48.6% vol, only 632 bottles of this very special 44 year-old are available.

TASTING NOTES

APPEARANCE

Dense antique mahogany with a cherry wood influence.

NOSE

Lovely balance. Clean, fresh, with remarkable fruitiness. Juicy sweet sultanas, dates and marrons glacés centrally positioned around a bitter chocolate heart.

PALATE

Initial profile of freshly roasted coffee beans and a treacle tart character. This is succeeded with baked apples smothered with brown sugar. Brilliant structure with no dominant force but with plenty of depth and length.

CONCLUSION

Limited to 632 bottles the GlenDronach Recherché is truly special.
