The GlenDronach 15 Revival returns to Australia

12 December, 2018 by Andy Young

The GlenDronach Distillery is celebrating the returned of its popular 15 year old expression, The GlenDronach Revival.

The Revival has had an interesting history since it was first introduced in the 1990s, bottled at 40 per cent ABV. It then ceased to be bottled, but then in 2009 The GlenDronach Revival Aged 15 Years, was released with a 46 per cent ABV.

This fast became a popular sherry cask matured whisky, so much so that in 2015 it was discontinued due to supply constraints. Now, after a three-year hiatus, The GlenDronach Revival Aged 15 Years is back, at 46 per cent, non-chill filtered and of natural cask colour.

The GlenDronach Master Blender Rachel Barrie said: “Today marks the return of The GlenDronach Revival Aged 15 years, an iconic aged expression of critical acclaim, revered by connoisseurs around the globe.

“After years of slumber, this relaunched expression embodies The GlenDronach signature style of Spanish Oak maturation in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucía. Over 15 years in the darkness of our dunnage warehouses, the spirit has grown in stature, refinement and intensity.

“The Glendronach 15 year old Revival has an exquisite balance of intensity and finesse. In flavour, intense notes of ripe dark fruits and manuka honey envelope into an elegant silk-velvet chocolate finish, reflecting the richly layered complexity of this iconic single malt.”

The whisky is available in Australia now in on-premise and specialist retailers, with a $140 RRP.
