Dram Review: Kinko GlenDronach 1994 18 Years Old

[55.3%・18 Years Old・Distilled in 1994・Bottled in 2012・Kinko Bottling・Cask No. 2002・Single Cask Release of 234 Bottles]

Nose:

Leather, coal and Sherry. Meaty toffee and immensely powerful, cherry liquor poured over chocolate mousse and dressed with toasted almond flakes.

Palate & Finish:

Sticky and savoury on the palate, soy sauce and burnt toffee making up a heavy assault of savoury meatiness full of umami with an intense aftershock of earthy molasses.

The earthy and smoky vibe continues, salt-roasted almonds drenched in coffee syrup with the oiliness of the spirit lingers on.

Thoughts:

Wooahhh what a fierce dram, it’s so different, I can’t put my words around it but I imagine it would be immensely satisfying having a hearty pour of this over a thick, fat cut of steak
