Distilled in 1971 and matured in a small batch of exquisite Oloroso sherry casks, this 33 year-old dram appeared in 2004 and at the time was the oldest and quite possibly the best Glendronach ever released. Boasting 95/100 from Jim Murray`s Whisky Bible and a Gold Medal at the San Francisco Spirits Competition, this is not a dram to miss.

The GlenDronach 33 year old is regarded by many as one of the distilleries greatest releases. Matured in the finest Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, this exquisite malt scored 88/100 in the 2008 malt maniac awards and was described by Jim Murray as a `Golden nugget of a dram`. This sublime whisky is not to be missed.

Tasting Notes by SCOMA: 

A special highlight for this Glendronch 33yo. It is matured in the finest Oloroso sherry cask and has a delicious juicy and sweet flavor. The finish is long and fitted with the typical smoky peat.

Aroma: Delicious, juicy, slightly peaty note.

Taste: Fresh smoke, light sherry sweetness, malty, slightly peaty.

Finish: Long lasting, soft and very warm.

Drochaid Note

Drochaid gave this whisky 91 points
Farbe: 
Reiches Mahagoni mit apartem, gelbbraunem Kern. Viskos und sirupartig.

Aroma: 
Ausgeprägt und suess. Riesig und aromatisch mit einer Kombination von suessen Kompotten, Nuessen und Schokoladenfondant. Verfuehrerisch.

Geschmack: 
Hier zeigen sich wirkliche Eleganz und Klasse. Eine Myriade von gewuerzten Fruechten besprueht mit bitterer Schokoladensauce. Dies geht einer zweiten Welle von Aromen voraus einschließlich Walnusskuchen und Mokka. Reich und geschmeidig bis ins Mark. Ein alkoholischer fluessiger Nachtisch.

Charakteristik:
Finished in Oloroso Sherry Fässern.
