Glendronach Single Cask 2002 14 Year PX Sherry Puncheon Cask #1504 Review

This is a 14 year Glendronach Single Cask matured in a PX Sherry Puncheon and bottled at 55.5% ABV.

Nose: Strawberries and graham crackers at first followed by peppermint, tobacco, cocoa powder, caramel, and a bit of floral notes developing after a few minutes in the glass.

Palate: More malty here with the peppermint notes carrying through from the nose. Cocoa again with some caramelized bananas – less fruity overall than the nose however.

Finish: Dry and oaky with only a hint of sweetness from gingerbread notes.

Rating: 86/100 – Not quite as raisiny/fruity as some of its older PX single cask brothers, but good nonetheless.

Value for the money: I think I paid about €105 for this, and it’s not too bad a price for what you get.
