My Handcrafted Opinions on Whiskies, Distilleries and Other Related Stuff

GlenDronach 17 year old PX Puncheon

I picked this off the excellent menu of Salt bar in London. It is perhaps the world’s only whisky bar / Indian restaurant / shisha cafe. It is certainly the only I have been to. The nose was all sherry cask; sweetened dark chocolate, a cherry fruit cake in a wooden box. The whisky fills the mouth and is very rich and chewy. Lots of the flavors carry over from the nose along with hints of sweet tobacco smoke and even a medicinal note. A little water smooths and sweetens and brings out black cherry and pepper. The finish is dry and long and clearly shows it spent 17 years in a cask.   This dram is what I call a Spanish bar fight … after drinking you feel like you have been smashed in the face with a sherry bottle.
