GlenDronach 1989 vintage 20 year old pedro ximenez puncheon (cask 3315), 53.2%

Price: $125 Issue: Winter 2010 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

This is the most seasonal of this batch of GlenDronachs, with a nose of rich stewed prunes and fermenting fruit in an orchard at harvest time. There is some anise and cherry lozenge in the mix, too, and the palate is complex, with plums, stewed fruits, and damson jam. The finish is drying, dusty, and spiky. £80
