GlenDronach 1990 vintage 20 year old Oloroso (cask 2621), 57.9%

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

If every fan of sherried whisky has a favorite GlenDronach then this is a long way down the road to being mine. It has a dusty dried orange peel, powdery, and perfumey nose, a soft and sweet round palate with a dark chocolate, tangerine, and pink grapefruit heart, and a balanced and gentle finish. This was probably once a hollerin' maned lion of a malt, but it's grown old gracefully and it now purrs and growls beautifully. £80
