Dram Review: The GlenDronach Single Cask Aged 23 Years (Cask No. 40)

[58.5%・23 Years Old・Distilled in 1993・Bottled in 2016・Official Bottling・Cask No. 40・Single Cask Release of 584 Bottles]

Nose:

Quite provocative with a deep perfume note, acai berries, red cherries and red oak, creamed honey with a bright ginger-y zing.

Palate & Finish:

Bursting of maple syrup and simmering strawberry jam, seasoned with just a pinch of cinnamon with a creamy beeswax follow through.

A nicely delivered Oloroso tail of stewed fruits, lengthy and warming.

Thoughts:

A Jane Holloway kind of red.
