Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1993
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.88 points
- On the nose, noble wood and coffee. More and more greedy, he delivers in succession orange zest and cinnamon. It's already Christmas! On the palate, well spiced and just sweet. Spices are still rising a notch in the final. With water, the coffee goes to the foreground in the nose. In the mouth, the spices go down a notch to express coffee and honey in a deliciously balanced way. Enthusiasm 4/5
- What a blast! This 19-year-old Glendronach has plenty of "buzz" and power. Intense and strong oak flavors, fruity sweetness and this incredible sherry aroma make this Glendronach a real pleasure. A great malt, I like it very much!
Velvet brown and radiantly clear the Glendronach shines in the glass, a reddish shimmer breaks in the rusty brown. Strong and dark sherry aromas stand out on the first nosing. Dark berries, dried raisins and dates exude an intense fruit aroma. Plums and old orange peel mix, dark chocolate rises from the fruit mixture. The salivation is massively stimulated by this beguiling aroma, toasted aromas and a hint of roasted almond emerge. The 53.7% alcohol content is slowly becoming noticeable, I can not smell enough of this intense and strong Sherrynase ...
Wow, intense and fruity oak beats on the palate. The dark berries and dark chocolate follow before suddenly peppery pungency sets in. The alcohol now shows its full power and heats the palate properly. The second sip starts creamy, espresso powder falls on the tongue, a pinch of pepper heats the sharpness again. Spicy and dark wood tones now dominate the taste together with the dried raisins and dates. Despite the high alcohol content and the resulting sharpness, I deliberately forego the addition of water. With subtle bitter and tart wood notes, the taste goes into the finish.
The bitter and harsh wood tones of the taste exude a dry woody aroma at the beginning of the finish. Spice and tart fruit flare up briefly, espresso aroma mixes with dark chocolate. The powerful finish sounds slow and a tart and fruity note of Hoznote remains in the memory for a long time.
- Bottlers Tasting Notes:
Appearance: Rich ruby mahogany.
Nose: A classic combination of sherry soaked raisins and waves of chocolate orange spiced gently by warm white pepper. A delicate orchard fruit note gives an elegant roundness to the end.
Palate: A vibrant fresh spice mouth develops into a robust traditional sherry character. Huge dark chocolate and coffee with the zest of rich orange marmalade envelope dark succulent fruits. Soft toffee and vanilla emerge to give a long deliciously creamy finish.
- LMDW note: Limited bottling of this large single malt, this Glendronach 1993 comes from a single barrel of oloroso sherry and was bottled without reduction or cold filtration. Rich and powerful, it is marked by notes of very ripe red fruits, prune, precious wood, mocha and praline.
