Continuing the topic of bottlings prepared for the Tokyo International Bar Show & Whisky Live Tokyo 2013 (after already described BenRiach 1985) I can not miss Glendronach Single Cask 2002, which matured in Sauternes Hogshead.

Glendronach Distillery was founded in 1826, although illegal distillation took place here many years ago. Located on the threshold of Speyside region, Aberdeenshire, near Huntly. Four stills work there. After several changes in ownership and periodic suspension of production, in 2008 the distillery was acquired by the BenRiach Distillery, headed by Billy Walker.

Tasting notes:

C: dark gold,

N: sweet, raisins, Christmas cake, a bit of milk chocolate, then something fruity begins, dried apricots, nectarines, bananas, water enhances the aromas, there is a hint of flowers and vanilla,

T: begins with a sour note, then there is pepper and 55.1% ABV, further – sweet, raisins, almonds, with minimal touch of wood, a bit of water calms down the alcohol, opens all listed flavors and gives creamy feeling,

F: quite long sweet with fruits.

Score: 88.

This single malt needs adding a little water, alcoholic strength is reflected by drinking neat. After pourning a few drops of water whisky opens up and puts the power of alcohol into the background but it still remains warming up.

      Piłem kilka różnych wydań GlenDronacha, każde odebrałem pozytywnie. Przy pierwszym kontakcie wyłania się nieodparty wpływ Sherry. Niestety z żadnego wcześniejszego degustowania nie zrobiłem notatek. Dużym plusem jest un-chillfiltration i naturalny kolor. Na Zdrowie!
