Despite Glendronach's 15 year old being a favourite amongst 'Sherryheads' it's been off the market for some time. The culmination of nearly a years hard work by the distillery's new owners (who previously did such a marvelous job at Benriach), recently saw the re-launch of the already popular 12 year-old Original as well as the return of the iconic older expressions. This release is from the archives.
Distilled in 1990, cask 2966 was a Pedro Ximenez [sweet] Sherry puncheon and bottled in 2012. Only 539 bottles produced.
Tasting note: Bright mahogany / polished copper appearance. Immediately in the Sherried mould with lashings of raisin, treacle, honey and vanilla evident. The intensity drops off after several minutes as the aroma develops old leather and subtle liquorice notes. Very delicate entry turns into a bitter sweet, mid weight palate with none of the attractive elements you'd anticipate from the nose. First impressions suggest sulphur, which was not evident from smelling. Several retastes later discover some lovely citrus peel and Christmas cake moments amid the heat and tannin. Concludes dry, mildly bitter and tannic with flashes of dark chocolate emerging into the aftertaste. What's happened to this? It improves marginally after re tasting but remains altogether perplexing. 55.1% Alc./Vol.
