  3. The_Independent scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    An intense, dark and extremely tasty sherry monster.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Deep, dark, sweet sherry notes, dried berries, maybe plums. Plus plenty of spicy aromas, Christmas spices. Alcohol well integrated.
    • Taste

      Sweet, intensely spicy notes, sherry, voluminous, dark chocolate with sour cherry, oak wood, then becoming somewhat bitter - espresso.

      Long, spicy, slightly woody, but also quite fresh, the mouth is a bit full. Makes you want the next sip.

    Great intense sherry malt. Extreme sherry fruit, very charged, you have to like;)
    Great whisky with good PLV, I personally like Sherry Intensive
    • Nose
      87 87
      deep dark fruits, like cherries, ripe plums, dark berries, a hint of spicy oak, has something Christmas like gingerbread, light cinnamon, a few cloves come through
    • Taste
      88 88
      strong full aroma, occupies the entire mouth and ensures salivation, a lot of dark fruit, apple compote,
      You can feel the oak with light vanilla up to the creamy sherry influence, very pleasant and tasty
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium to long finish, slightly honey or syrupy,
      slight hints of hops before oak again comes to the fore

    Glendronach 18 Allardice bottled 13.06.2017 WID: 101663
    46% Oloroso Sherry Casks
    Nose: a light herbal quark note in combination with honey, a very domniante but balanced sherry nose, plum cake with bouquets
    Taste: distinct sweetness, fruit compote, redcurrant juice, grape must, sticky caramel bonbons
    Finish: sticky sweet finish that lines the mouth, you have to swallow several times
    Conclusion: Since you have nothing more to say, only hoard.

  6. Jackson05 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    N: huge sweetness, dates, figs, sticky toffee pudding, vanilla. Syrupy on the nose

    P: and yes, the nose was correct. Intense sweetness. Dates, raisen, sherry, sticky sweetness

    F: corn syrup, walnuts, sticky toffee pudding, the sweetness hangs around for too long and becomes cloying.

    Wow, that is a dessert dram for sure. Bring your sweet tooth to this one.

  7. Eckest scored this whisky 92 points Member Senior

    dry; only dark, dried fruits; perfectly reflects an Oloroso sherry; almost no alcoholic stinging; Great

  8. Mc Tisj scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    It's simply a top dram. Nice in balance. Super nose and tast.
