GlenDronach Single Cask #5476, 49.9%

Price: $418 Issue: Summer 2018 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The oldest of the fifteen expressions in Batch 16 of GlenDronach's single cask release program, this cask-strength offering has been matured for 26 years in a Pedro Ximénez sherry puncheon. The nose yields fresh-from-the-oven Christmas cake, cherries, nutmeg, and sweet leather. Viscous on the palate, with dark sherry, raisins, plain chocolate, tangy orange, and caramel. Prickly chili and dates in the long finish. (546 bottles) £310
