Glendronach 1996 PX Sherry Puncheon Cask 1485
I've been lucky enough to try a lot of good whiskies, some great whiskies and a handful of amazing whiskies over the years and even i was excited by the range of single casks in Glendronachs batch 14 releases.
This 1996 single cask which was matured in a PX Sherry Puncheon hits all the right notes for me, frirst up no rubber, but it does pruens, sweetness and edges of that bitter dark chocolate that i love.
If you love sherried whiskies, this will make a great addition, just make sure you drink it and dont have it just sit on a shelf.
Sold out in most places, still available to buy from Robert Graham
Thanks to Glendronach for the Official Sample.
oh yum, toffee wrapped fig segments, wine poached pears with syrup, very dark chocolate shavings over a caramel latte, a hint of oak leaf sauce and coffee creamer in the background.
More bitter and drying than I was expecting from the nose, coffee grounds and bitter dark chocolate, prune juice, cinnamon and nutmeg spices, strong oak spices too
Spicy, woody, long lasting
