After a visit to the distillery I picked up a bottle of the single cask 401 which was bottled for Parkers in Banff.... Following their demise the distillery sold off the remaining bottles in the shop. Jim Murray scores some of the Glendronach single cask bottlings very highly indeed but this one is absolutely astounding. The depth of flavours is unmatched by anything I have tasted recently and considering it retailed around £65 it is the best value for money in my collection...... The nose is deep and has a fresh quality that seems to intensify the longer it is swirled around.. A little water frees up an intense burst of...well fruity licourice is the nearest I can come to. It is one of the rare malts that taste exactly as it smells and the aftertaste lingers and diminishes cleanly with no off notes whatsoever.... It is a cracker of a dram and the only thing vaguely comparable is a good bottling of A'Bunadh.
