A 1992 Single Cask Glendronach selected by Wayne, Harrison & Tim exclusively for Whisky-Online.com...
We're pleased to offer all of our customers our first official private single cask. This cask was specially selected by Wayne, Harrison & Tim exclusively for Whisky-Online. It was among some worthy contestants, including a couple of casks from the renowned 1993 vintage. However, the lads didn't want to select a whisky based solely on its attributes but instead select a whisky that would be respected for its sheer quality. Below we have included our tasting notes for your perusal.
This Glendronach was distilled on 05/06/1992 and aged for 26 years in sherry butt #220 before being bottled in 2018 with a yield of 457 bottles.
Whisky-Online Tasting Notes:
Colour: Deep Amber
Nose: A rather elegant old style of sherry. Saline, nutty and redolent with damp earthy notes, bitter chocolate, old Armagnac and touches of rancio. Hints of lemon rind underneath hot espresso, black pepper and myriad soft dark fruits. Water reveals marzipan-wrapped prunes, damson compote and earthy black teas.
Palate: A rather surprising and hefty spiciness. Lots of woody mulling spices, treacle, black pepper, hot paprika and things like roast chestnuts, camphor and new leather. Hints of lime cordial, charcoal, black cherry, truffled meats and a salty, resinous rancio note. Water reveals dark fruit cordials, jams, damp pipe tobacco and strawberry wine.
Finish: Long, earthy, salty, full of walnut oils, sharp spices and hints of cough syrups and herbal resins. Extremely satisfying and thrillingly old school, echoing sherry.
