Last but not least, our first gem from The Glendronach bottled exclusively for Dom Whisky:
The single cask edition presented here brings whisky from a different era – distilled in June 1993, when the distillery was owned by Allied Distillers, spent almost three decades in PX sherry puncheon # 6738 (in our opinion, the best type of wood for this whiskey). This nectar was bottled at cask strength (53.3% abv) exclusively for us, for DOM WHISKY, in 2023. The cask yielded 694 bottles.
Nose: creamy cappuccino, chocolate-coated raisins, roasted almonds, vanilla, hints of herbs (thyme and sage), ripe cherries and plums, delightful combination of sweet, dark fruit and the spiciness of toasted oak.
Taste: silky smooth and multi-layered, mocha, gingerbread, a dash of cinnamon, melted butter, plenty of dark fruit, especially plums and blackberries, roasted walnuts, and tobacco leaf.
Finish: long and evolving, from sweet layers of honey and blackberries to a subtle spiciness and mixed nuts playing a final cord.
