A fairly disappointing Glendronach single cask, despite 30 years on its belt. It almost seems a bit muted at certain times. Doesn’t have the same punch as the 16-22 year old ones I’ve had before. The notes are still there, just doesn’t stand out much. Doesn’t have the additional layer of complexity I would’ve expected from something this old either. It was good, but not great.
