GlenDronach 25 – 1993 “Master Vintage” (48.2%)

I knew about the GlenDronach 25 Master Vintage last year, but was sworn to secrecy, and I’ve been biting my lip for nearly 5 months.

The Whisky Show 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of the iconic London event. The theme of this year’s Show was ‘The Future of Whisky’, and if there’s one definitive glimpse I can offer you on the future of whisky, it’s this: Expensive.  (At least until the next whisky loch, slowly distilling as we speak).
