GlenDronach 1992 26 Year Old Whisky Shop Exclusive Review

17th April 2019
Review of The Whisky Shop exclusive GlenDronach 1992 26 Year Old and it is a stunning sherried dram.

The GlenDronach 1992 26 Year Old The Whisky Shop ExclusiveThere has been a few top notch GlenDronach 1992 vintage single cask releases over the past few years and this recently released GlenDronach 1992 26 Year Old has been bottled exclusively for The Whisky Shop

Distilled 15 May 1992 and fully matured for 26 years in a single Sherry Cask No. 81 and bottle in 2019 at a cask strength of 50% ABV.

A limited release of 469 individually numbered bottles, the deliciously dark single malt is naturally coloured and non chill-filtered and is priced at 239.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes::

Nose: Rum soaked, dark chocolate coated sultanas. some distant coffee, a faint touch of toffee with a liquorice edge and a very delicate smokiness lurking in the background.

Taste: Deliciously sherry rich, dark treacle toffee infused with rum soaked raisins, orange, the barley sugar manages to break through the layers of sherry along with some vanilla and honey. Some lovely late oak spice, cinnamon and ginger add to the pleasure.

Finish: A long finish, the juicy sherry notes hangs in there for an age before before fading leaving some lovely lingering cinnamon and ginger and some mildly drying, and still vibrant for its age, oak spice.

Comment: An absolutely delicious sherried pleasure from the GlenDronach, with expressions such as this surely the GlenDronach distillery is "King of the Sherried Single Malts" these days when you consider age, bottling strength, number of bottles in the release, price and most importantly the quality of the release would you really consider taking a chance on the likes of a Macallan. A stunning GlenDronach sherried dram which is not to be missed if your pockets are deep enough and you are looking to spoil yourself.

SMW Score 95/100

Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2019 is bottled at 46% ABV and will be available worldwide from the 8th April 2019 and you will find it available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
