GlenDronach 16 is sherry heaven




Just finished off this lovely sherry cask wonder. Thanks to K&L exclusive for this 16yr old Glenronach bottled in 1994. Glendronach has an unctuous, chewy mouthfeel that isn't overly cloying or too saturated with sweet sherry. 
Earthy notes from the warehouse aging permiate the rich, oily flavors of vanilla, raisined fruit, and cakebread. The cask strength proof really keeps the sweetness at bay and the result is a fabulously balanced malt that should appeal to just about everyone. This is the barrel everyone will overlook, but I'd bet my salary it's the one that will get the best reviews. -David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer
