Distilled in 2005 and bottled in 2020, this 14 old single cask from GlenDronach comes to us after 14 years of aging in a Pedro Ximenez Puncheon. Bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering at 58% ABV, Cask #1928 carries a MSRP of $150 and is a US only release.
Bright and fruity on the nose - great combination of butter pecan, cherry, bright caramel candies and some honey.
Medium mouth feel, some honey and almond. A bit of toffee, light fruit character and some plum. Sweet wine, faint nuttiness, a touch of praline.
Long finish filled with brown sugar, toffee, cherry cordial, plum and pear.
Vibrant, young and far from bashful, this particular vintage has lots going on, though the youth is more evident and the wine a bit less integrated compared to older cousins in the GlenDronach portfolio.
Disclosure: The producer asked us to review this, and sent some along
