  1. RobbievdB scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Pfew. Quite a cask they selected. Probably my favorite ‘93 Single Cask from Glendronach. This is such a complex and ever evolving dram that delivers on all the flavors you associate with an oloroso sherried Glendronach from the famous '93 vintage. Dried fruits, fresh fruits, spices, coffee, sweets, chocolates, leathery, lovely old wood. This lets you sit down and mesmerise for hours sniffing and tasting. Every zip swallowed leaves you with an everlasting finish. Superb!

    • Nose
      A dream nose with a few drops of water.
      I could smell it forever.
      At the beginning a slightly musty stone vaulted cellar. Sherry. Dark berries, juicy ripe oranges.
      Then gradually a spicy note is added. I always end up with nutmeg, a touch of lovage with black pepper.
      I would find much more but now I want to try it
    • Taste
      Immediate salivation. First, the sweetie strikes fully. Sticky, honey, the ripe orange again. Dark berries. Light tingling on the tongue, the alcohol is very well integrated. In fact, I hardly have any wood. The fruity sherry note lasts and lasts.
      Wow ..... immediately makes you want a second sip!
    • Finish
      First the fruity sweetness. This also lasts for a very, very long time. At the very end there is some wood and a pleasant bitterness.


      I do not know what the issue price of this bottle was, but I envy everyone who can own a whole bottle of it.
      Has convinced me in every way. Unfortunately, the sample is now empty

    Sister cask to Abbey Whisky #652 at 60.6%. From announcement to out-of-stock in about 45 min. If this was anything like the Abbey, I can see why.
