Glendronach 1985 / 27 Year Old / Single Cask #1035

As far as I can recall this is the first 1985 vintage to be released as part of the official single cask, batch releases from GlenDronach distillery. Single cask #1035 has been aged for 27 years in a Pedro Ximenez sherry puncheon before being bottled at 53.7% in 2013. Only 290 bottles filled from a puncheon barrel? Split cask ? Or has the angels share been rather to greedy? Glendroanoraks know the answer to this puzzle, for sure…

“Demerara and ground coffee beans flow over the stewed dark fruits. Hints of spicy cigar box, mixed peel and soft clove add a great complexity through the long rich finish.”
