GlenDronach 25 1993 Single Cask Hand-Filled Distillery Exclusive

Thanks to /u/distillasian for this sample. So as part of Distillasian’s trip around Scotland, he left the island of Islay (I assume kicking and screaming) and came back to the mainland to hit up one of his favourite distilleries, GlenDronach. During the shopping he did, in which he showed more restraint than I have in the past, he chose GlenDronach 25 1993 Single Cask Hand-Filled Distillery Exclusive from the… Continue reading GlenDronach 25 1993 Single Cask Hand-Filled Distillery Exclusive

GlenDronach 11 2003 Single Cask PX Sherry Puncheon

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. Yes, that’s a wine bottle. It was part of a split. Yes, my glass is dirty. I exude a film on my hands that help me escape predators. As a “break” from the distillery exclusives, we jumped over to GlenDronach. Specifically GlenDronach 11 2003 Single Cask PX Sherry Puncheon, a cask that was bottled for Wine & Beyond back in 2014, when… Continue reading GlenDronach 11 2003 Single Cask PX Sherry Puncheon

GlenDronach Single Cask – Multiple

So I have this bad habit of going overboard on things and hoarding stuff. This year I’ve been doing my best to attempt to get through a backlog that I’m now calling “silly”, which includes quite a few series. Which brings us to GlenDronach single casks. A while ago someone mentioned it wasn’t a vertical unless it went through an unbroken sequence of whiskies starting… Continue reading GlenDronach Single Cask – Multiple

Toronto Whisky Society’s <10yr/NAS Social Event

Looks like them Toronto Whisky Society boys (and ladies) are up to no good again folks. Just kidding, we’re always up to great good. It was a slightly windy day in First Spring when the TWS (owners of this here website and such) had a good ol’ tastin’. We headed to Dupont, set out the nicest crackers, dark chocolates, and cheesey-poofs, and invited everyone. Entry? Well … Continue reading Toronto Whisky Society’s <10yr/NAS Social Event

GlenDronach 18 1995 Single Cask Tawny Port Pipe

Thanks to /u/lasidar for a sample of this one. Honestly, I have samples of GlenDronach Single Casks. I really, really do. I just haven’t gotten to them yet. Lots going on. Too much, some would say.

You see, typically… Continue reading GlenDronach 18 1995 Single Cask Tawny Port Pipe

Glendronach 43 Year Old Single Cask (1971, #2920) [800th Whisky Review]

First off, yes. This is my 800th review on the whisky network. I’m now about 1% of the database. Part of it. A good chunk, at least. Second, thank you to /u/xile_ for this sample. I owe you, and thanks for giving me a milestone worthy dram to review. It’s kinda funny too, because a few days after reviewing this I ended up with a bad… Continue reading Glendronach 43 Year Old Single Cask (1971, #2920) [800th Whisky Review]
