Glendronach 25 Year Old Single Malt Whisky 1993 Single Cask Tasting Notes:
Appearance: Deep Mahogany. Long & slow oily legs Nose: Heaps of rich and aromatic sherry is the first and obvious thing to hit you. And the other (and anticipated), usual suspects to arrive are heady antique furniture polish, chocolate-rich fondant, dark & sticky dates, fig rolls, juicy raisins, dark cherry jam. And way off in the distance is the faintest wiggle of a feinty and sulphurous element. This is an “ohh emm gee” nose-moment for the classic GlenDronach fan.
Palate: Thick, rich and sweet with a spiced-sherry reduction. There’s an element of vanilla thrown in for good measure. But then a bitter dryness appears out of nowhere and shoulder-barges the sweetness out of the way. What’s happening? Now the faint sulphurous tone detected on the nose jumps in and makes itself known, but it’s not too strong and is at the level similar to another favourite cask from an earlier batch (#1020), and it’s a friendly handshake. I’m starting to feel like the word “sulphur” & “Voldemort” are both words that are taboo and must not be named. However, another sip and that dryness does now appear to be getting a little overpowering. It’s no longer the delicate, warming, and sweet whisky I had on the nose but more woody, tart and dry.
Finish: Long with a flow from crisp and toffee-like sweetness that moves to a bitter-bite and dryness with a feinty-head.
