Yielding 658 bottles, this single cask from Glendronach was distilled in 1992 and bottled in 2021 for the US market, for a 2022 release. With an SRP of $720, this 28yr single cask saw maturation in an PX Puncheon and was bottled at 50.8% ABV with no coloring or filtering.
Sweet, syrupy, rich and full of character. Cocoa, gooey cranberry sauce, currant and blackberry jam. Nutty sherry, sweet and jammy.
Rich, oaky, toffee, sweet buttercream, blueberry preserve, blackberry jam, brown sugar, nutty and sweet. Peppery, oaky, drying on the back palate. Coats the palate nicely.
Long finish, peppery and fiery - there's no risk of cloying here. Sweet cream, bitter oak, toffee, blackberry and blueberry reduction mix with a touch of balsamic and tobacco.
Simply incredible once again. While it's not quite as wild as the #217, it's fantastic whiskey with a great balance between sweet, wine, tannin and malt. Lovely.
