Color
Burnt umber
Nose

Tout de suite envoûtant. Complexe et charmeur. Le vieux bois du fût d'oloroso, avec sa gamme de café, de cacao, de cèpes, de noix, de craie. A l'inspiration, une trame fruitée avec l'orange sanguine comme fil directeur. Effluves de rose, de fleurs blanches, de poivre blanc, de clou de girofle. Bouffées d'herbes aromatiques. A l'agitation, le côté floral est magnifique et prenant. Du caramel aussi, des dattes, quelque chose d'oriental (pâtisseries dégoulinantes de miel et d'amandes caramélisées).

Taste

Gras, onctueux, tapissant. La cire d'abeille comme écrin à la profondeur fruitée. Café, noix, praliné. Un peu de sel et des épices. Superbe toucher de bouche et très belle architecture. Fondant.

Finish

Chocolat noir, piment d'Espelette, liqueurs de noix et de café, le tout enrobé de cire d'abeille.

Comments

Ne cesse de se bonifier à l'aération. Après des essais dans des verres variés, le verre idéal pour celui-ci est, définitivement, le no ice whisky de Schott Zwiesel.

Glendronach 20 yo 1993/2013 (52.9%, OB, batch 8, oloroso sherry butt, cask #3, 633 bottles) Five stars Colour: full amber. Nose: very different again, this is shier but also seemingly more complex, maybe more elegant… So less ‘wham-bam’, with more flowers (orange blossom, lime tree), then rocks, earth, this feeling of old wine cellar again, a few walnuts, touches of balsamico, fresh almond and… gewürztraminer. I mean roses and litchis, but only wee touches. So heavy sherry can remain complex and elegant! A little bacon too (that’s less elegant, I agree). With water: an old cabinet of Partagas Lusitania. I smoke very rarely these days but these stunning aromas remain very vivid in my mind. Mouth (neat): it’s desert! Many honeys and many liqueurs, with a perfect combination of oranges, caraway, orange blossom honey, Virginia tobacco, candied ginger and a fistful of juicy sultanas to round this off. With water: absolute perfection. Love the dryness. Finish: very long, it’s like a grande finale. Love the bitterness, no aftertaste should be sweet in my opinion. Comments: I almost went for 93 points. This one might well be the best recent 20 years old I could taste. Very, very impressive. So, old Lusitanias, I remember very well when we first… But you don’t care, do you? SGP:462 - 92 points.

An amazing 20 year old whisky from Glendronach`s 8th Batch of single casks. Distilled in 1993 and aged until May 2013 in a single oloroso butt. Dark, rich and decadent.
