Distilled in 1993 by the veritable GlenDronach Distillery, this sherried expression comes to us in the form os a 26yr single cask, selected by Nickolls & Perks.
Rich, pungent, sherry. Ginger, toffee, some nutty sherry character. On the snappy, spicy, savory side of the sweet sherry spectrum, rather than being a syrupy punchbowl.
Rich on the palate. The nose is a bit of a red herring as some fruits do reveal themselves. Currant, blackberry and toffee pair well with some pepper, more ginger, decadent pound cake and opulent creme brûlée. Powerful, rich, complex.
Long finish. Spicy, sweet, syrupy overall. Lots of caramel, honey, nutty sweetness. Grape, date, fig and some toffee.
This is really quite nice. I love that spicy ginger candy note I get throughout.
