    Foreign Whisky of the Month - 04/2014: Glendronach

    It's become somewhat of a favorite of many, at least for sherried Single Malts that is, the Foreign Whisky of the Month for April is Glendronach.

    Seems like a good Winter to Spring kind of whisky to me.

    Gosh, I haven't had this one in 30 years. Don't believe I've seen it around here either.

    Bout time.

    Just killed a bottle of the Specs 17yr PX (thanks, Johnny). Probably one of the best sherried malts I've ever had. No words - just plain awesomeness.

    Opened up a 21 yr Olorosso, too. It's good, but not up to the level of the Specs 17. A little sulfur and a lot of prune.

    Has anyone tried the current K&L 18yr PX? I'm definitely interested...

    Sounds like you like the PX. I've been working on the 1996 17yo PX. Sometimes I like it for what it is, sometimes I'm choking on sour fruit cough syrup. I get pretty much all barrel and would have a very hard time telling you what the malt tastes like.

    I'm not happy to hear you're finding sulfur on the 21yo. That's the 1992? I have that and the 15yo Revival on deck. I think I'll crack the Revival first.

    That Spec's 17 was much less cloying than the 15yr single cask PX I had last year - perhaps it had enjoyed recasking regimen a la Mongo's GD article?

    I've been enjoying the Specs 21Year Oloroso 1990… its great and I'm so glad I got this instead of MacAllan 18 for less money. Specs 17 Year PX 1994 is up next. I also love the 15 Year Revival.

    Just killed a 15 and opened a 1990 23 yr old. I'm more excited that I have a line on a dusty 1963 12 year old in mint condition with tax strip. I'm in the feeling out stage with its current custodian.

    Hell yes. One of my favorites. I was going to wait until my birthday rolled around to crack open the bottle I hand filled at the distillery last year (a CS 1993 oloroso), but I might have to accelerate that timeline in light of this celebration. If not, I just opened an OB 33 year that is a more than worthy consolation.
