GLENDRONACH 1993 PX 26 YO 70 Cl
Those lucky enough to have tasted Glendronach’s most renowned sherry cask bottlings - and they are many - will find it easy to understand the passion inspired by this single malt and the esteem accorded by enthusiasts around the world. This absolutely superb bottling is packed with all the mysteries that have made this Scottish gem’s renown. These include extraordinary complexity and power, intense fruit, wonderfully serene maturity and an unpretentious power of seduction. These qualities are of course accompanied by herbaceous, earthy sequences that flirt with peat.
|Nose||Precious wood, musk, orange, mango and dark chocolate bring lots of sensuality to the rich initial nose. Papier d’Arménie, red fruits (raspberry) and spices then come together in harmony.|
|Palate||The energetic and smooth attack is mentholated and herbaceous (bay leaf). Quince jelly and rhubarb appear on the mid-palate.|
|Finish||The rich finish is salty and pastry-like (cake). The retronasal olfaction is superbly earthy (agave).|
