Nose

Sherry delight! Perfectly matured fruits. Peach. Rum raisins and dades. Oaky. Prunes now. Pear in the end

Taste

A lovely and glue-y feel to it. All the above is here. So sweet. Cherry. Jam.  

Finish

Very long. Delicious. A bit dry development. More jammy. Apricots.

An exemplary 1972 sherry cask from Glendronach, but who are we kidding? --  that's like saying that this is a good cask of 1972 Brora -- we already know it's damn awesome. Astoundingly juicy, with lots of cherries, prunes, overripe mandarin oranges, beautiful rancio wine notes, with some cadbury chocolate with guess what, oranges in it! Superb, absolutely superb!

Colour: Amber

Nose: Mellow, rich, intense, fruity, floral, with some heather honey, tangerine and orange. Very harmonious and subtle. A pleasure to nose.

Taste: Smooth and mellow, on red berries, oranges, tangerines and slightly spicy. Rich, complex, with a remarquable balance. The finish is long, spicy, smooth, rich, on strawberries, as well as other red berries, tangerine and orange, all mixed sith some delicate aromatic herbs and a slight smokiness.

General Impression: An impressive GlenDronach, without any blemish of age. One of the best sherried whisky that I have tasted for a long while.
