Glendronach 1993 / Single Cask #33 / AW Exclusive

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky Distillery Bottling

We've always enjoyed a single cask GlenDronach, so when the opportunity arose to bottle our very own, we jumped at the chance.

Distilled in 1993, this outstanding dram has been bottled exclusively for abbeywhisky.com. The whisky has taken on a beautiful, dark crimson colour thanks to its 20 year slumber in an oloroso sherry butt, single cask #33 to be precise. Full bodied, wonderful flavours, the perfect winter warmer... At 59.1% vol it packs quite a punch!!

Bottled in 2013 with an outturn of 592 bottles.

Tasting Notes

The nose is luscious, lovely stewed prunes and sweet plum syrup hold fantastic depths of gentle clove, cinnamon and rich orange marmalade. The palate, a full-bodied traditional sherried character that gives tremendous waves of sun dried raisins, dates and spiced plums. Richly roasted coffee beans with touches of almond and walnut add a depth and complexity to the long, robust finish. The perfect winter warmer…

Mind blowing, by far the tastiest Glendronach i've ever been lucky enough to try.

Glendronach 20 yo 1993/2013 (59.1%, OB, Abbey Whisky, Oloroso sherry butt, cask 33, 592 bottles)
Colour: mahogany. Nose: yes! This time we're all on great Armagnac, with prunes, raisins, only a faint oaky side (pencil shavings) and then smaller notes, earl grey tea, chocolate, cappuccino, maduro cigars... It's a great nose! With water: more of all that, with a mineral side, flints, a very great mustiness in the background... Mouth (neat): yes it's perfect. Rich yet vibrant, not that sweetish, very chocolaty, with a lovely spiciness between cloves and pepper, some gingerbread, some chestnut honey and touches of bitter oranges. What's not to like? Ultra-classic sherry monster. With water: what a great swimmer! A lot of herbal teas, blackcurrant buds, blackberries... Finish: long and, dare I write, very ganache-y. I know, I know. Comments: ultra-classic indeed. As long as some keep making these - whatever the way they make them - not everything is lost.
SGP:561 - 90 points.

This Single Cask #33 is quite possibly one of the best '93's I've ever had. It is absolutely superb and I was blown away by it. Let's hope their stock stays around for a while...

Creamy, spicy, brown sugar sweetness and a lot of dried dark fruits with raisins and chocolate aroma, followed by a long and nutty aftertaste. All you would expect from a GlenDronach whisky of the fab year 1993! Cask #33 is a must have! Good job Abbey Whisky
