This ticks all those boxes and then some…
Glendronach 1993 26yo Single Cask 392 Oloroso Sherry
A one-off bottling for the Australian website retailer, The Whisky List. And what a cracker it is. Full Oloroso sherry cask matured, cask strength and with the full weight of a marvelous reputation that the Glendronach Single Cask range bought to high quality single malt whiskies.
WhisyList notes read, “Christmas cake, spices and hints of choc married with the Oloroso sherry, you will be hard pressed to find another cask that is a champion in perfect balance of both the cask it was aged in and the characteristics of the distillery. And the finish is to die for. Gentle warmth and the length, it feels like it lasts forever.”
While TimeForWhisky opines, “I’m not exaggerating here, this is one of the best GlenDronach single casks I’ve had*. In the pantheon of 1993 single casks, I’d rate #55 and #394 up there as some of my favourites, and this easily equals them, if not beats them (I haven’t tried them back to back). I love that it hits all the right sherry notes, without being a bomb. Don’t get me wrong – I love sherry bombs, but I also love whiskies that have more nuance and elegance, whilst still being bloody delicious. This ticks all those boxes and then some. 93/100.”
