The GlenDronach 12 – paired with – Dubliner Cheese (Ireland)
Sweet, round and creamy; Oranges, plums, walnuts, chocolate, sherry, and soft spice oak.
A hard, cow milk cheese that is aged anywhere from 12 months to 2 years. The cheese aims to combine the sharpness of a cheddar with the butter sweetness of Parmigiano. This will lend well to the sweet influence of PX and Oloroso maturation, and floral flavors of GlenDronach 12.
GlenDronach Portwood – paired with – Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese (Italy)
Sweet, round and creamy; Oranges, plums, walnuts, chocolate, sherry, and soft spice oak. Protected by European law, Parmigiano must be made in Emilia-Romagna from milk from the surrounding area of Parma and Reggio. The saltiness of the cheese is the perfect accompaniment to bring out the sweet and nuttiness of the Portwood.
The GlenDronach 18 Allardice – paired with – Gorgonzola Cheese
Richly sherried malt is truly unforgettable with sweet aromatics of fudge and muscovado sugar and a taste of rich, dark and seductive flavors of sweet fruits and allspice. Gorgonzola is traditionally a rich creamy cheese, but the blue-green ripples add a sharp spicy flavor that provides an excellent contrast to its richness. The taste ranges from mild to sharp, depending on age. The smoke and rich flavors really draw out the all spice, sweet fruits and chocolate that the 18 years of aging in Oloroso casks brings to the whisky
