GlenDronach 1989 Cask No.5476 28 Year Old Review

7th March 2018
Review of the GlenDronach 1989 Cask No.5476 28 Year Old.

GlenDronach 1989 Cask No.5476 28 Year OldThe GlenDronach 2006 Cask No.1979 11 Year old is one of 15 new limited edition whiskies in Batch 16 of GlenDronach's popular Single Cask series of whiskies.

Fully matured in a Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon it was selected by GlenDronach Master Blender, Rachel Barrie as part of this latest batch of single cask releases.

Non chill-filtered and natural colour this PX sherry cask matured whisky was bottled at 49.9% ABV, it is a limited release of 546 bottles and will be available from specialist whisky shops such as Master of Malt while stocks last.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A mix of plum and apricot, mildly spicy toffee apple and dark chocolate raisins.

Taste: A lovely smooth delivery of dark but not heavily sherried fruit - burnt raisins and sultanas, orange, nutty, a light touch of vanilla behind the lovely dark fruit a little touch of honey. Late arrival of some smoky bacon.

Finish: Deliciously long, the fruit bows out leaving an earthy, cigar box, drying mature oakiness.

Comment: Not as heavily sherried as you may think given its 28 years in the cask, a more elegantly sherried, very enjoyable, mature GlenDronach.

SMW Score 89/100

You can find the limited  GlenDronach Single Cask releases available from specialist whisky retailers such as Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange
