I have both '92 and '93 16yo's (cask # 1140 and #523). I haven't opened either but they look delicious! (see picture in recently purchased). I promise to open one of them when I return from Scotland at the end of the month (presently in Kirkwall).


Cheers!

I was lucky enough to aquire one of the '93 and '94 SC bottlings, the '94 from the distillery is absolutely stunning...... It has replaced a SC Mortlach from Laings as my favourite ever whisky..... And J.M. reccons the '93 is even better... :P
The depth of flavour is immense, it is one of the very few cask strength whiskys that is smooth enough to savour straight from the bottle. A warm glass releases the sort of aromas that takes you somewhere else. I have spent many a happy hour with a glass of this sitting outside beside a blazing chimnea just savouring the nose of it.
For the snobs....even I can detect the depth of the molasses on the nose and the cinimonesque spices linger long after the initial rush fades, but in a smooth way if that makes sense......
The '94 is an exceptional whisky. untill I had tried the standard bottlings (the 12 is best suited to my taste) I had no idea the distillery was producing again. Frank Massey in the visitors center is a walking encyclopedia on whisky in general and glendronach in particular...... Go visit the place and book one of Franks "connoisseur" tours....you will not be disapointed.
