East Highlands distillery The GlenDronach has announced the launch of a new global travel retail exclusive whisky, the Boynsmill 16yo single malt.

The whisky has an RRP of US$115 and is bottled at 46% ABV. As with all The GlenDronach offerings, the expression is non-chill filtered and absorbs colour naturally over time from the Spanish oak in which it resides.

The GlenDronach Boynsmill 16yo is pictured in front of the historic Boynsmill House, which was the home of distillery founder James Allardice.

GlenDronach Boynsmill has been aged in a marriage of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucía, and port casks from the Douro Valley in Portugal.

The GlenDronach Master Blender Dr Rachel Barrie said: “The GlenDronach Boynsmill 16yo celebrates the rich heritage of The GlenDronach, with a small number of casks hand-selected to showcase its robust and complex Highland character.

“Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks express the rich and full-bodied signature style of The GlenDronach, while port casks from the Douro Valley subtly influence the balance of fruit, recognisable in the ‘Valley of the Brambles’.

“I hope whisky travellers will enjoy this rare opportunity to savour the depth of a truly old-style Highland Single Malt.”

The new expression, which joins the 10yo GlenDronach Forgue as the distillery’s second travel retail exclusive, will be available to purchase in selected travel retail locations from this month.

GlenDronach Boynsmill 16yo is the distillery’s second exclusive release into global travel retail.
