Glendronach 1989 Cask 5476 Review

Glendronach 1989 Cask 5476 Recently released the Batch 18 single casks series from the hugely popular Glendronach distillery range has landed, and run straight out the door, at most retailers, this 1989 cask 5476 is from that range of drams.

Glendronach has a bit of a cult following and the bottles dont last long on the shelves, despite that i'm generally not a fan, possibly my aversion to sherried drams, and i've found a lot of the sherried Glendronach very "samey" but then i know others who absolutely love them, each to their own as they say.

Distilled in 1989 and matured in a PX Sherry Puncheon producting 576 bottles this dram is a really interesting one, lots of strawberries and cream and and metallic treacle tins, a hint of bacon frazzles and grilled gammon steak also.

A really tasty dram, if you can grab a dram of this somewhere do, but the bottles seem to have gone although it is worth checking with your preferred local specialist as some may still be around.

Thanks to Glendronach for the official samples.
