This is GlenDronach Single Cask 1993, aged for 24 years in a Sherry Butt. Unfortunately finding these bottles became awkwardly hard that I feel myself in a race. I was one of the lucky lads to taste this Sherry monster in a considerable amount and I wanted to post my thoughts on it.
While GlenDronach Single Cask expressions are really sort of amazing, the race it is in among the collectors and auctioneers has been a worrying issue for me and tons of whisky enthusiasts around the world. Former GlenDronach Single Cask expressions around the same age could be purchased for $200 in the last years. Though, a resale bottle can see $1k threshold value which is just not a good sign for the whisky market right now.
If I get back to the whisky in an honest way, yes, this is a very well made, superb sherry bomb having great qualities such as richness and pure development in the palate. In time you can appreciate different notes in a perfect way. At the same time adding some drops of water not just open the palate but also creates a more fruit forward palate with softening all tannins on your inner cheeks.
Just a fabulous dram and hope we can get it at more reasonable prices or even more we can find them on shelves, not at the auctions!
