Glendronach is one of my favorites distilleries ( even if I didn’t featured them in the list of ten whiskies everyone must taste this Christmas ) and they bottle great whiskies like the Glendronach 15 years old Revival or their amazing single cask releases.
So you can understand my happiness when I read that they were releasing a cask strength NAS version of their whisky. I taste here the 1st batch but they are already on the 3rd.
“Good Glendronach whisky! Seems a blend of Oloroso and PX casks which works really well. One ordered.”
This dram has a tawny-like color.
Nose (90): more than average. nuts, honey, toffee, citrus, figs, cocoa.
Palate (90): powerful, oily. nuts, honey, citrus, wood, cocoa, spices, dates.
Finish (91): longer than average. nuts, citrus, chocolate.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Glendronach Cask Strength / Batch 1 with 90 points over 100.
Although I don’t usually enjoy PX drams, and this one has more than a bit of it, I liked the Glendronach Cask Strength a lot. I am happy to have bought a bottled. Good whisky.
