GlenDronach 1995 Cask No.3311 22 Year Old Review


7th March 2018
Review of the GlenDronach 1995 Cask No.3311 22 Year Old.

GlenDronach 1995 Cask No.3311 22 Year OldThe GlenDronach 1995 Cask No.3311 22 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 50.3% ABV, it is a limited release of 518 bottles and will be available from specialist whisky shops such as Master of Malt while stocks last.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A little earthy mustiness, buttery, honey, a little nuttiness.

Taste: An intriguing mix of cherry and the more bitter plum and orange, peach and apricot also, then a wee touch of sulphur appears, the slightest touch of liquorice.

Finish: Although long, the fruit doesn't hang around, drying not so sweet oak, the whole thing bitters out with the slightest touch of sulphur tainting the pleasure.

Comment: Quite a shy nose with not much saying there is a lot of pleasure to come. then not the most enticing mix of fruit on the palate and spoiled slightly by a tinge of sulphur on the finish. I would say this would take a few drams to fully appreciate.

SMW Score 85/100
