A full-bodied traditional sherried character. Multilayered, perfectly
balanced with depth and complexity. Tremendously creamy, spicy, sweet
with lots of dried dark fruits and chocolate aroma, followed by a long
and nutty aftertaste. GlenDronach spirit and Oloroso sherry - a
fantastic example of a perfect symbiosis! This is whisky making in total
perfection! If I had to choose only one bottle of GlenDronach from the
fabulous year 1993, it would be cask #33 - NO DOUBT!
Big and rich sherried nose with deep aromas of prunes, dates, raisins
and sticky treacle. Delicate flavours of marzipan, luscious oranges and
cinnamon emerge, accompanied by a whiff of leather (horse saddle),
tobacco leaves, tender herbal notes, earl grey tea and a whiff of pencil
shavings in the back. An absolutely gorgeous nose!
Oh boy - this is rich, intense, sweet and creamy! Raisins, dates and
figs nicely mingle with lots of Demerara sugar on the palate. This is
immediately followed by a warming and lovely spiciness of pepper, cloves
and some ginger. Fine notes of marzipan arrive, lingering with subtle
bitter orange peel, dark chocolate, espresso and tender almonds and
walnuts towards the finish. Very accessible and perfectly balanced.
A very long, sweet and spiced finish with Demerara sugar, marzipan and
delicate cinnamon. Slightly bitter notes of oranges, expresso beans,
almonds and walnuts deliciously mingle towards the end. Stunning!
WITH WATER: A few drops of water slightly enhance the fruity and creamy
character of this beauty on the nose. Subtle notes of flint stone and a
few more herbs are added to this gorgeous nose. Sweet, creamy and less
spicy on the palate with herbal tea, blackcurrant, marzipan, raisins and
delicate walnuts. The finish is long, creamy, sticky sweet with
oranges, cacao and lovely walnut flavours.
