    Glendronach 1993 Cask 8933. With the current 27 reviews (average 92 points) I was curious about this bottle. Anyone expecting a sherry monster like Cask 660 will be disappointed here. There is no sherry wall here that covers everything else. The focus here is on the fruity notes. The alcohol is quite present at the beginning, but blends in well with the fruity-spicy overall picture. A complex, well-matured Glendronach. Good who has one or two. Almost 92 points from me and thumbs up! :)
    • Nose
      The Glendronach lies oily in the glass and medium-dark mahogany inspires in warm nuances. The alcohol is quite present at the beginning, but wonderful sherry aromas come through very quickly. Now not so very old wood and leather or cigar box, no, more the fruity notes like dark plums, dates and apricots, blueberries. Behind it, notes of almonds and nuts flash as well as a hint of coffee. The longer he breathes, the better he gets.
    • Taste
      The Glendronach pushes properly on the tongue, the 57.2% are noticeable at first, but the volume percentage drops very quickly and a massive flow of saliva is noticeable. Now dark plums, blueberries and apricots come through again. These seem to have a touch of cinnamon. Very fruity, very voluminous. Cigar box, old leather still nil. With the second sip, a little more spices like ginger and pepper come through. However, the spices never have the upper hand and the sweetness comes out victorious here.
    • Finish
      The 1993 Cask 8933 stays in the mouth for a long time. At first the sweet notes dominate, only gradually the mouth becomes drier, the tongue seems to stick to the palate. In between you might think you had a sweet cognac in your glass. Very balanced, very pleasing, very long, very beautiful.

    Too good to be true.

    Expensive (over 1000 pounds) but worth

    Blind Tasting: December 2020
    • Nose
      Full of sweet berries. Black currants and spicy caramel. Marzipan and vanilla. Balanced oak wood, caramel and leather. Dried fruits, mature raisins and dates. Fantastic!
    • Taste
      Earthy and oak wood. Nutty with sweet cinnamon, mature raisins and red berries. Complex and with a large body. Leather, dates and mature plums. A sweet spiciness emerges with more tones of oak wood. Lovely!
    • Finish
      Initially sweet fruits, raisins, dried fruits and red berries. Light pepper and sea salt. Fantastic, long aftertaste.

    Good PX sherry cask maturation with lots of fruity, sweet touches and an astonishing number of parallels to the younger standard bottlings (12 and 15 years) or the 25 year old Master Vintage

    Update. second part of the sample. Correct my rating downwards, boring dram without complexity
