The GlenDronach is one of the most renowned names in whisky, so when the sherry-cask master distillery launches one of its rare single-cask releases, whisky lovers everywhere pay close attention. In fact, so high is demand that it can often be hard to get your hands on one. Fortunately, this year The GlenDronach has teamed up with Dan Murphys for an exclusive Australian release of a 28-year-old single cask that’s sure to get the whisky community talking, and here at Man of Many we’re giving you the chance to win a bottle worth AUD$1,100. Read on to find out how!
The GlenDronach’s 28-year-old single cask is a landmark release for the distillery. While anything distilled in the early ‘90s is highly sought after by GlenDronach enthusiasts, this 1993 vintage is sure to be particularly prized. That’s because most of The GlenDronach’s expressions are a blend of both Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks – admittedly producing outstanding results – but as we mentioned in our complete whisky guide, a single cask release serves up all the uniqueness of a singular sherry cask.
In the case of this Dan Murphy’s exclusive (cask #7101), the release comes from a single Oloroso Sherry Puncheon cask that imbues the whisky with dry, nutty notes followed by a rich and complex finish. The nose of this particular dram features layers of brazil nut and walnut oil, with dark honey, nut kernel, beeswax and buttered raisin bread, while flavours include oloroso, plum and sultana, with lingering raisin and cinnamon-spiced walnut.
As the old saying goes, “But wait, there’s more!” Not only are we offering this stunning $1,100 bottle for one lucky winner, we also have one bottle each of The GlenDronach’s 21-year-old Parliament and 15-year-old Revival expressions for runners up.
