Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling Exclusive For Whisky-Online
70cl / 54.7%
A 1992 Single Cask Glendronach selected by Wayne, Harrison & Tim exclusively for Whisky-Online.com. This was our first official private single cask from Glendronach Distillery; it was distilled on 5th June 1992 and aged for 26 years in sherry butt #220 before being bottled at full cask strength in 2018 with a yield of 457 bottles.
The last stock of this exclusive single cask Glendronach 1992 was reserved and is now available only to our VIP Club members.
Wayne, Harrison & Tim took great care in selecting this Glendronach exclusively for Whisky-Online, tasting through a large number of cask samples including a couple of casks from the renowned 1993 vintage. However, the lads didn't want to pick a whisky just because of its vintage but instead focused solely on sheer quality. Below we have included our tasting notes for your perusal.
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.
