Glendronach 18 yo Tawny Port finish

The very first post for the Jewish new year! Not that I really use the jewish calendar that much, but it’s holiday time and a good opportunity to post something for the new year. This is quite new, and was released last August, which makes its a month or so old on the shelves.. The 18 year old replaces the …

Glendronach single cask 1993 Cask #5 [batch 9]

Time for our last tasting notes for the week, with another GD single cask from the latest batch (9). 1993. Let’s see what happened in 1993, I think that was my senior year at high school, and quite a nice year all in all. What i find odd is the cask number (5!?) not really sure how they got to …

Replacing the GlenDronach Grandeur 31 Years Old that has now sold out, the GlenDronach Grandeur 24 Years Old is another exquisite long-aged representation of the smooth, complex and full-bodied style for which GlenDronach Distillery is …

GlenDronach 1972 cask # 702 , 41 years old

Back to the GlenDronach single cask release #9 with the oldest cask released in this batch, a 41 years old (older than myself) Oloroso Butt, distilled in 1972. That’s surely an interesting one (and quite expensive, as you might expect – so it’s for those of you with deep pockets, or willing to share with a few mates). After the …

GlenDronach 1991 cask #5405 [Batch #9]

I planned to taste this one later this week, but following Ruben’s review I was rather intrigued to taste it earlier and see if it’s really THAT bad (a 78 for a GD single cask is not something you often see on the blogosphere). So, here’s my take:
GlenDronach 1991 cask #5405 [Batch #9], £104
Nose: A really thick nose. Almost like …

Glendronach 1985 Cask # 1035 PX Puncheon 27 yo

This is the first cask I am tasting from Batch #9 of single casks released last December (full story here). No reason why I started with the 1985 but I had a feeling this is going to be a good one, and boy was I right (not that there are any bad GD single casks).  Distilled 13/12/85 bottled at 53.7% …

GlenDronach Cask Strength – Batch 3 , 54.90% , £56
Nose: Sweet sherry with hints …

Two more (and last) single cask Dronachs from the lovely batch 8 (latest batch) of single casks. One is PX, and the other is Oloroso , slightly younger, but almost at 60% it’s a powerhouse. Let’s dram, shall we?

GlenDronach 19 yo ,1994 (cask 101) Oloroso, 58.40% ,£93
628 bottles were Available from this cask (all gone i think) , which is …

Glendronach 1971 cask #1246 – 42 yo

Time for some more Glendronach, as the weather is getting better and real Automn is on its way. Gone are the scorching days of summer (So i hope).
So… a 42 year old GlenDronach. Does life get any better than this? (hint: no). I was very lucky (and so thankful) to have gotten a wee sample of this nectar for review. …

Two Young(er) Glendronach single casks from batch 8

Batch 8 of Glendronach has been released with batch 10 of BenRiach (Its sister distillery) a short while ago. I chose to start with the BRs then enter Glendronach sherry land, and here we are. GlenDronach indeed is synonymous with sherry casks, and indeed their entire range is heavily sherried, and very much loved by sherry heads. I chose to …
