The GlenDronach Master Vintage 1993 25 Year Old Review


22nd February 2019
Review of the new GlenDronach Master Vintage 1993.

The GlenDronach Master Vintage 1993 25 Year OldIt is known from past releases that the GlenDronach distillery has turned out some outstanding whiskies which had been laid down to mature back in 1993 so I am sure those of you who were lucky enough to sample any of these previous releases will be interested to know that the distillery has just released The GlenDronach Master Vintage 1993 25 Year Old.

Matured in a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks which have been hand picked and brought together by The GlenDronach Master Blender, Dr Rachel Barrie, to create this 25 year old Vintage 1993 expression.

Master Blender, Dr Rachel Barrie commented: "With a quarter of a century slowly maturing in our renowned Andalucían casks, The GlenDronach Master Vintage 1993 Aged 25 Years has developed profound layers of depth and complexity, leading to an exceedingly long, voluptuous and memorable finish."

Bottled at 48.2% ABV, non chill-filtered and naturally coloured,  The GlenDronach Master Vintage 1993 25 Year Old has a Retail Recommend Price of £250 and will be available from this month from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt


William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A lovely rich enticing nose of toffee infused with sweet rum and raisin, a little orange and almond and a very delicate smokiness lurking in the background.

Taste: Deliciously rich, burnt rum infused raisins, treacle toffee with a fine coating of dark chocolate orange, just a little vanilla giving a nod to its age, some lovely oak spice and ginger hanging around in the background.

Finish: The treacle toffee becomes more coffee'd before fading, the delicious rum infused raisins hangs in there for an age before leaving you with some mildly drying very gentle oak spice.

Comment: Delicious, a fantastic nose and delicious in the mouth, a faultless GlenDronach and a sherried pleasure from start to finish.

SMW Score 93/100
