Glendronach Single Cask 1994 20 Year PX Cask #1079 Review

This is a 20 year Glendronach that was matured in a PX Sherry Puncheon and bottled at 54.4% ABV.

Nose: Big, meaty sherry with honeycomb, prosciutto, raisins, freshly sawn oak, figs, and apricot jam.

Palate: Golden raisins mingled with new oak – chalky, but sweet with peaches and nectarines, citrus juice, and prunes.

Finish: Clean, sweet sherry lingering with damp oak.

Rating: 90/100 – I’m typically a fan of these Glendronach single cask releases, and this one is no exception. Despite the 20 year PX maturation, there are still a lot of lighter/bright notes in here to avoid just being a pure dark sherry bomb.

Value for the money: This retails for $220 and I think it’s a bit on the high side, but not too bad.
