Another dram from GlenDronach’s single casks Batch #10, a 1992 vintage this time, bottled from cask #199. Sister cask #195 was released as part of Batch 9, and cask #200 went to Taiwan some time ago.
GlenDronach 22 yo 1992
(59,4%, OB 2014, Oloroso sherry butt #199, 576 btl.)
Nose: heavy sherry, with classic coffee and dark fruit cake. Dates and raspberry vinegar. Slightly heathery, which evolves to waxed oak and polished leather. Lots of toasted notes, walnuts and chestnuts. A bit of chocolate. Good balance of darker, smoky sherry and fruitier top notes.
Mouth: thick and pretty wide again, although a bit on the dry side. Tobacco leaves and cedar wood, dark chocolate, strong espresso, stewed prunes. Plenty of herbal / roasted notes and walnut skin. A hint of rubber and burnt hay as well.
Finish: long, fairly herbal, with plenty of oak spices and dark, bitter chocolate.
A good one, especially if you like them dark and roasted. Around € 170, still available in most places.
