Blind Tasting Competition 2014 – Days 13-14

Day 13 was day I will remember, since I guessed the distillery (Glendronach). one of my favourite distilleries, and the nose and palate screamed BIG SHERRTY DRONACH. I was a bit silly to not have opted for a high abv cask and guessed it was younger, so I did not get the entire score. Not sure why It did not …

The new GlenDronach 12 Sauternes finish – Review

This is a brand new GD expression which replaces the 14 year old sauternes finish, which now has been discontinued. It’s bottled at 46% as most entry level GD , NCF,  matured in European oak (read: sherry) casks, and then finished in a small batch of Sauternes wine casks (Sauternes being a sweet desert wine, in case you’re not familiar …

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 …

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% …
