The Glendronach Master Vintage 1993 Aged 25 Years presented
The Speysider was matured in Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso Sherry casks
The Scottish distillery Glendronach has released a new single malt whisky. In 1993, those Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks were filled, which now were selected by Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie to be blended and bottled as The Glendronach Master Vintage 1993 Aged 25 Years.
Sherry casks has been characterizing its aromatic profile since the Speyside distillery was founded in 1826. The year 1993 turned out to be an outstanding one and whisky of that year was already released several times, for example last year as a 24-year-old Glendronach Master Vintage. There are also already several single cask bottlings of this distillation year on the market.
Customers of Whisky.de will certainly remember the single-cask bottling of a Glendronach 1993, which was presented on the occasion of the whisky shop’s 25th anniversary last year.
This new 25-year-old vintage bottling The Glendronach Master Vintage 1993 was bottled uncoloured, un-chillfiltered and at 48.2% ABV.
Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie said: "Fans of The GlenDronach’s traditional Highland Single Malt can expect rich brandy-laced fruitcake on the nose, cocoa-dusted coffee and sultana brioche on the palate and lingering pecan toffee notes in the finish. I hope sherry cask connoisseurs around the world enjoy The GlenDronach 1993 Master Vintage, as an example of the finest sherry cask maturation.”
