Glendronach 1968 Single Cask 25 Year Old #10 / All Nippon Airways

Glendronach was built in 1826 by James Allardice, and rebuilt following a fire in 1852 by an individual named Walter Scott (although not the one you might be thinking of). It eventually passed into the hands of perhaps Scotland's greatest distilling dynasty, the Grants of Glenfiddich. Charles, the youngest son of William Grant procured the then-silent distillery from the government in 1920, and it remained in the family until they sold it to Wm. Teacher 40 years later. The Grants and Teachers were early champions of the single malt category, and distillery bottlings of Glendronach were produced for most of the 20th century until it was mothballed by Allied Distillers in 1996. The distillery was revived in 2002, and has since become one of the strongest single malt brands in the world.

There are a number of famous Glendronach from 1968 and this is no different. This was a single cask bottled for Nippon Airways. 

This is the original Glendronach 25 year old from 1968, which Serge Valentin from WhiskyFun explains is 'A tremendous sherry monster', scoring 90 points.

Cask #10, bottle number 033 of only 492.
