GlenDronach Peated Port Wood (46%)

You’ll recall (or you can see here) that I was somewhat underwhelmed by GlenDronach’s peated offering.

GlenDronach Peated Port Wood (46%)

Our guest editor Sean Russell has tasted the GlenDronach Peated Port Wood, and, well….He’s not a fan! And here we go. The competition to the current peated bottle is here. Whereas the current peated GlenDronach is influenced by sherry, this new one is its suit-wearing rosey-cheeked cigar-smoking chubby uncle holding a bacon sandwich.   GlenDronach…
