    • Finish
      Long and burning, spicey, zesty

    Great whisky with a wonderful sherry nose, not very complex but very balanced and close to perfection. The taste is gorgeous, very rounded and full-bodied but maybe a little bit too sweet for me. Easy going on its full strengths but water doesn't spoil the taste. The finish isn't very long but very pleasant. Would be nice to have a bottle of this single malt but it's hard to find since the batch is small, just 659 bottles and in addition it's expensive (close to 300 euros)
    • Nose
      Sherry, dried fruits (prunes, figs, sultanas), caramel, wood notes, baked apples, unripe walnut, sweet oranges, woody notes and honey with water
    • Taste
      Sweet, full-bodied, oily, creamy, toffee, fudge, vanilla, dark berries (blackberry) maple syrup, slightly peppery and malty
    • Finish
      Medium-long, sweet, warm, mouthwatering, nutty, with fresh plum notes

    Nutty, coffee, dried fruits, slight influence of wood, very balanced. I don't find it particularly sweet, a tad too dry for me, but easy to drink.

    LMDW: "To understand this version, we can choose the shortest way, which is to immerse ourselves completely in a lush, heady and marvelously creamy Andalusian universe, but we can also take cross roads, which on the aromatic level, pass by a phenomenal rise and on the palate we can taste a white alcohol or an infusion of plants.However, as evidenced by dry extracts, one thing is certain, these two roads lead us to the same place: Forgue by Huntly in Aberdeenshire. Profile: lush, the first nose is jammy (wild strawberry), chocolatey, earthy and rancid (cherry brandy). With aeration, it is much more spicy, herbaceous and floral (vetiver). The attack on the palate is in turn very influenced by pedro ximenez wine. Original, the mid-palate reveals hints of raspberry with eau-de-vie and verbena. For its part, the finish is marked by notes of toffee, salted butter caramel and spices (cardamom). TASTING NOTE Color: orange copper with bronze highlights. Nose: rich, lush. The pedro ximenez wine has a jammy (wild strawberry), chocolatey, earthy, rancid (cherry with eau-de-vie) and oriental (date, fig) signature on the first part of the aromatic sequence. At aeration, it is much more spicy (cinnamon, clove), infused (coffee, black tea), herbaceous, floral (vetiver), apricot and camphor. In a word, he becomes more and more heady. Palate: dense, stirring. Here too, pedro ximenez wine has a great influence on the palate. Notes of coffee with milk, cardamom tea, dried walnuts and dates bear witness to this. The mid-palate offers a very original interlude in which raspberries with brandy, apricots and verbena notes are spoken. The end of mouth clearly evokes a cigar from which escape the volutes of a delicate smoke. Finale: silky, creamy. Very tertiary, it offers notes of toffee, raisin cake, coffee ice cream and salted butter caramel. Then, grated ginger and liquorice stick gradually coat the taste buds. The retro-olfaction is very greedy (madeleine, four quarters) and slightly tannic (skin of pedro ximenez grapes). With its animal notes (leather, bacon), the empty glass is in itself a definition of Glendronach. "
