Distilled in 1993 - a glorious vintage, if I do say so - this GlenDronach single cask comes from cask #6732 and is bottled after 26 years of aging at cask strength: 50.9% ABV (note: stock image)
Rich and ripe. Peppery, packed with raisin bread, tobacco, cherry cordial, cocoa and a big, syrupy grape character. Date fruit, pound cake. Decadent, opulent, enticing.
Rich and syrupy on the palate. Peppery at first, giving way to bold malt character, date fruit, cherry cordial and blueberry reduction. A touch of maple, balsamic, grated ginger.
Long finish, a touch hot, but despite the fiery character, it’s rich in character. Ginger, honey, orange peel, blackberry cordial and a big hit of malt.
Delightful, rich and despite a touch of heat: decadent and delightful.
