We are pleased to bring to you a 1993 Oloroso Sherry GlenDronach single cask bottled entirely for Australia. Cask #392 was distilled on February 12th 1993 and bottled at 51.0% earlier this year, making it the first 26 year old 1993 GlenDronach bottling to make it into the wild.
"I'm not exaggerating here, this is one of the best GlenDronach single casks I've had ..." - Martin, Time For Whisky
"You're never quite sure if these are full-matured sherries or only finishings but that doesn't always matter. Few companies are totally transparent in that respect, well Diageo are.
Colour: reddish amber.
Nose: yep, rosehip tea, peonies, shoe polish, orangettes (zests dipped into chocolate), camphor and soft liquorice, then black earth and boletus. Even hints of black truffles. That's all fine and well, if not extremely oloroso-y. With water: oh what a wonderful earthiness! Would you forgive me if I wrote that it reminds me some ex-sherry Karuizawas?
Mouth (neat): excellent! Huge walnuts, touch of burnt cakes and nuts, bags of liquorice, blood oranges, more orangettes, raisins, chouchen (remember, that's more or less distilled mead), touches of copper, pepper, mustard/Madeira… Excellent, really. With water: once again, it got earthier and a tad more mentholy, which is just superb indeed.
Finish: long, the oranges being back and mingling with the liquorice, the mint and some tobacco.
Comments: superlative 1993 Glendronach. I hate to add 'as expected'. Well selected, Australia!" - Serge, Whisky Fun - 91 Points
