    Doing a GlenDronach 1993 head to head - Cask 40 vs 42.

    Official tasting notes:
    Appearance - Antique waxed mahogany
    Nose - Dark molasses and fresh herbal notes balance perfectly with currants and rich stewed barley
    Palate - A warmth of ground black pepper and cinnamon with rich dates and sultanas. Classic aged oak characteristics add a traditional Highland depth.

    A very difficult session as both were so similar generally, but quite different when you goes into details. I would pick out #42 for better complexity on the nose and palate, although the finish is less pleasant compared to #40.

      Explosive sherry-ness you'd expect from top of the line GlenDronach. Rich and powerful, with all sorts of dried fruits you can imagine - figs, prunes, dates, raisins and the list goes on. There is a mustiness hiding behind the sherry wall, as if you're in an old warehouse full of whisky casks. Brown sugar sweetness, pickled ginger, and a luscious leather and dark chocolate. A great representation of modern oloroso sherry cask matured malt.

      Fulfill exactly what the nose promise - rich and full of flavors. The fresh sweetness is really intriguing, and the pickled ginger is creating a nice combo on the palate. A certain Chinese traditional bitter herbal soup I was forced to drink when I was a small kid.

      Very long and warming finish, and perfectly dry with typical oloroso sherry notes,black coffee. some nuttiness, without too much unpleasant bitterness.
