Expert Senior lachaineduwhisky Tasting note

Color
Mahogany
Nose

Très vineux (vin cuit) et très profond. Promesse juteuse. Du cuir. Une note de cerise qu'on trouve dans certains bourbons. Avec l'ouverture, du miel et du Nutella !

Taste

Crémeux, caressant, presque onctueux, il fait la part belle aux noisettes et au miel. Très belle intégration alcoolique.

Finish

Sur le cacao et quelques fruits rouges en embuscade.

I was intrigued to try this after Danish Whisky blog named it Whisky Bottling of the Year for 2012 (http://goo.gl/rwtmTU).

His review is spot on - there's a balanced, integrated complexity that I haven't found to this degree in other 1993 Glendronach single cask releases - giving it a mature sophistication.

I can spend a long time with my nose in the glass, it's a pleasure to breathe - there's a complex softness and maturity, just lovely. Fruit is integrated rather than punchy.

Very balanced on the palate, elements of dark fruit, cocoa, and oak spice coordinate wonderfully, evolving smoothly and in concert.

That consistency continues on through the finish - just an excellent selection. Maturity and a smooth complexity throughout - evoking the sherried whiskies of time's past.

Burnt umber
Nose

Takes a few minutes to really open up. Then it starts on a ton of spice, mince pie, a little coffee, dates. Loads of softly varnished soft (red) leather. That is, this is a classic richly sherried dram. Who could argue with it? Spanish brandy, even with a little salt and a single penny (for those who know the stuff). Cinnamon, nutmeg. Rich spice bread (a little undercooked on the inside, but the exterior slightly singed). Water makes it a touch spicier and more broadly sweet. Sandalwood and cedar emerge as well.

Taste

Spicy on entry, ginger and chili, and then coffee and leather, accounting for the oak. Burned raisins and a little less spice than was on the nose. Same general track. Water turns the 'bitter' notes more fully to coffee and coffee grinds, but a smooth and gentle cup of it. salt. Thick raisin and date jam. Burned and singed spice bread, too.

Finish

All the same, and it just continues. A little dry. Lots of coffee and leather. Some fruit. If you like big sherry bombs, this is a good 'un. And I do.

This Glendronach boasts notes of chocolate cookies and roasted Java coffee
beans. The dense aroma leads into a chocolatey palate with persistent chilli
spice and a little crystallised ginger. The finish is long and rewarding with
intense sherry cask flavours

Producer`s Notes:

Appearance: Rich ruby - mahogany.

Nose: Chocolate, figs and spices in abundance.

Palate: Layers of dark chocolate and orange in harmony with nutmeg, raisins and delicate spices.

"A winter UK exclusive bottling from Glendronach, following up 2011`s excellent 1995 PX matured dram with a 1993 also from a PX cask. This is a dark, stick and decadent dram, perfect for the festive season."
