Very few bottles of this cult favourite now remain. Distilled prior to the distilleries closure from 1996-2002, this '15 year old' bottled in 2015 is not so quietly known to contain whisky that's actually at least 19 years old. It is was also distilled at a time when GlenDronach was able to use direct coal fire to power their stills and used 100% ex-Oloroso Sherry casks in the maturation of this 15 year old expression.
