One of a string of Glendronach single cask bottlings - this is from the 1996 vintage. These releases are all from Oloroso sherry butts, bottled at cask strength with no colouring or chill-filtration and should be spectacular. Please note that this item is One Bottle Per Customer.
I think this was batch 1. Colour: mahogany. Nose: full oloroso, on coffee, chocolate and prunes plus these wee flinty notes that hint at struck matches but never scream 'sulphur!' Also love all the cassis jam. Mouth: it is a total sherry monster, with truckloads or prunes and wheelbarrows of raisins. Pretty smooth despite the high strength. I also find some cranberry juice and blackberry jam. Finish: very long, maybe a littler sweetish? Jelly beans and cassis bonbons. Comments: a massive sherry monster, maybe a notch inelegant, in a way, especially since there's all this sweetness on the palate. Right, sugar. Remains a great dram in any case. SGP:741 - 86 points.
