GlenDronach 1993 19yo (cask 487)
Bottling: Distillery Bottling
Cask: Oloroso Sherry Butt
Having tried some of the previous GlenDronach expressions this is the first time I have
Sulphur straight unfortunately away but blending into stewed fruits. Salt & Vinegar crisps made with cider vinegar. Raspberry Jam on Brown Toast.
Melting bitter dark chocolate on the tongue, oily mouthfeel with a touch of ginger.
Oily coating, nutty.
This is a bottle I have approached a few times with varying results. One of the main changes is the perceived sulpher aromas. Sometimes these I can only just pick up on, but other times it is overwhelming and not unlike rotten eggs, but tonight is the former as I write these notes. This definately deserved some time in the glass before approaching and some of the sulphur seems to die away.
