    Glendronach 1992 Cask 83, a Glendronach that fans should love. He convinces all along the line. Starting with the voluminous nosing, through a varied firework of aromas in the mouth to a strong, long finish - the Glendronach has everything to offer that has made this distillery so popular with fans. Despite its "low" drinking strength of 49.8%, Cask 83 puts a lot of pressure on the tongue, the aromas are wonderfully complex and exciting to explore. I am pleased to have a bottle of this in my collection. For me the best Glendronach I could try in 2020. Thanks to my malt brother Wiggerl Dram for the sample. Today there are 93 points from me. Slaintè!
    • Nose
      The Glendronach 1992 Cask 83 is deeply dark in the nosing glass and immediately puts a big grin on my face. Here you will find the typical Glendronach sherry bomb that you would expect as a Glendronach fan. Sherry, sherry, sherry: dark fruits such as plums, blackberries as well as dates, cherries, dark chocolate with at least 85% cocoa, espresso, a touch of vanilla, apricots and toffee, minimal hints of peat smoke, which probably came from toasting the barrel. The 49.8% are barely noticeable and are very well integrated. A sensationally complex and exciting nose like the wonderful bottlings from the legendary 600 series from 1993.
    • Taste
      Despite its comparatively "tame" 49.8%, the Glendronach lies powerful and intense on the tongue. The nosing continues in the oral cavity. The heavy sherry aromas initially dominate the sensational taste experience. Saliva flow is stimulated and the longer you chew the Glendronach, the more aromas are released. The plums, blackberries and cherries are joined by notes of caramel and raspberries, the alcohol is no longer noticeable. Over time, the dark chocolate and coffee notes become more present. A slightly herbal spice note appears in the background, which makes the taste experience even more complex and a little more balanced. Very good i love it!
    • Finish
      In the finish, too, the sherry sweetness and heavy dark fruit aromas dominate, although a few spicier pepper notes are now noticeable on the tongue. Nevertheless, the Glendronach stays in the mouth for a very long time. The flow of saliva persists for a while before the mouth becomes a little drier. Wood and leather notes and a fine, subtle spicy note now slowly dominate the back of the tongue. If you brush your cheeks with the tip of your tongue, you have the dark sweetness of sherry again. A great mix that doesn't seem to want to end.
