GlenDronach Octarine 8 Year Old Review

Glendronach Octarine 8yr A swapping of spare miniatures with my twitter friend Liam (@MiniMalts) resulted in me having a minature of this Glendronach Octarine 8 Year old.

I believe this was only ever originally for the French market but is seeing it's way around more and more countries in Europe now.

Young(ish) and openly so this is fruity and sweet but has a kick of spice that comes from the youthfullness but that adds a certain something to it.

A very interesting dram, thanks to Liam for sharing.
