12th August 2019
Review of the GlenDronach 1993 Cask No.416 25 Year Old.

GlenDronach 1993 Cask No.416 25 Year OldThe GlenDronach 1993 Cask No.416 25 Year Oldis one of 14 new limited edition whiskies in Batch 17 of GlenDronach's popular Single Cask series of whiskies.

Matured for 25 years in a Oloroso Sherry Butt, non chill-filtered and naturally coloured this PX sherry cask matured whisky was bottled at 51.2% ABV, it is a limited release of 663 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: Vanilla and sherried fruitcake - burnt raisins and sultanas, a hint of toasted almond and some mild spicy treacle toffee.

Taste: A rich sherried fruit delivery, the delicious dark sherried fruit - burnt raisins, sultanas and cherries are joined by some plum, a touch of mildly zesty orange, a little nuttiness, a touch of vanilla and behind the fruitiness is a lovely touch of honey and spice.

Finish: A deliciously long finish with the burnt raisins and sultanas hanging in there for an age, some lovely lingering treacle toffee and of course some mature oak clinging to the palate until the end.

Comment: A lovely big sherried GlenDronach, not a huge sherry bomb but it really is a mature sherried pleasure in on the palate and the long finish simply extends that pleasure. Another cracking GlenDronach single cask whisky.

SMW Score 91/100
