GlenDronach 1992 Cask No.5896 26 Year Old Review


12th August 2019
Review of the GlenDronach 1992 Cask No.5896 26 Year Old.

GlenDronach 1992 Cask No.5896 26 Year OldThe GlenDronach 1992 Cask No.5896 26 Year Old is one of 14 new limited edition whiskies in Batch 17 of GlenDronach's popular Single Cask series of whiskies.

Matured for 26 years in a Port Pipe, non chill-filtered and naturally coloured this Port cask matured whisky was bottled at 59.3% ABV, it is a limited release of 828 bottles.

One of 7 out of 14 releases in Batch 17 that will be heading for the Asia Pacific, Australia, New Zealand and Canadian marketplaces, it will be available from August 2019 from specialist whisky shops such as Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange while stocks last.


William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Sweet sugared plum and orange blossom, some gentle vanilla toffee.

Taste: Orange and raisin infused vanilla toffee are joined by some sugared almonds.

Finish: A deliciously sweet lingering raisiny fruity finish slowly fading into a gentle mildly drying nutty oakiness.

Comment: If you are looking for something off of GlenDronach's more familiar sherry cask matured beaten track and you enjoy a mature port cask matured dram then you really cant go wrong with this, a deliciously moreish example of a port cask matured single malt.

SMW Score 90/100
