GlenDronach Master Vintage 1993 25yo 700ml
The GlenDronach Master Vintage 1993 Aged 25 Years is bottled at 48.2% ABV, and as is the case for all The GlenDronach expressions, is non-chill filtered and absorbs colour naturally over time from the Spanish oak in which it resides.
Since the distillery was founded by James Allardice in 1826, The GlenDronach has been mastering an elegant, rich and robust Highland Single Malt, matured in the finest Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucía in Spain. Now, after twenty-five years slowly maturing in precious sherry wood, comes The GlenDronach 1993 Master Vintage.
The GlenDronach sherry casks laid down in 1993 have long been acknowledged as an excellent vintage from The GlenDronach, receiving high praise from malt connoisseurs. This has inspired the creation of The GlenDronach 1993 Master Vintage, to showcase and celebrate this exceptional year.
The GlenDronach Master Blender, Dr Rachel Barrie, has hand-selected Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks exclusively from 1993, to create a marriage of exceptional richness and complexity, in this twenty-five-year-old expression of The GlenDronach Highland Single Malt Whisky.

Palate: Sip cocoa-dusted coffee and sultana brioche enlivened by a twist of baked orange rind and the juiciness of prune oil.
