- Great malt, more intensive, powerful and interesting than most single cask Glendronachs out there. Very bright and complex - chocolate, cherry syrup, ripe oranges, dried fruits, walnuts, nutmeg, cinnamon and a bit of sourness. One word - great!
- Nose: Quite strong and spicy. Plenty of sherry, figs, cinnamon and plums. Notes of dark fruits. Nice and powerful.
Taste: Wonderfully creamy start, then lots of dark chocolate, walnuts, cherries, dried fruits. Sweet mango and plums again with massive woody tannins in the end.
Finish: Long, spicy, drying. Very intense. Fruity, dark chocolate and ripe date and cherry. The finish is full of bright and strong sensational feelings.
Nougat, dates, oranges. Marple syrup. Light smoke. Warm chocolate. Camphor. Sexy.
Spicy, intense and powerful. Lots of dark dried fruits, raisins, dates. Slightly tannic, but the wood is rather soft and quite balanced. A bit of cocoa. Then blackberries, oranges and tangerines, sweet mellow mango.
Long, oily, sweet, slightly woody and tannic, dark fruits, cherry and orange zest. Some dark chocolate and honey soaked ginger. Superb
- Such a wonderful dram, one of the best Glendronach I have tasted.
Nose: a superb and powerful nose - raisins, figs, dates, some sultanas and sherry. Clearly some tropical friuts, mango. Very complex and powerful.
Taste: first silky smooth, then increasing to a powerful taste with lots of dark fruits, dried apricots, raisins, mango, some peaches. Then come warm spices, cinnamon is well pronounced too. Also tobacco leaves and nuts. Wood is nicely balanced.
Finish: long, it flows easily with lots of fruit notes, marzipan, cherries. The finish is going from fruits over to a pleasant and even spicy wood. A terrific and harmonious malt.
- Nose: complex, sherry notes with some cinnamon, a bit of peaches and apricots.
Taste: nice and rounded, very fruity (orange, red apples, dates), sherry, marzipan, a little cocoa, cinnamon and other spices.
Finish: long, very long... strong and complex, wonderfully mouth-filling; pepper, oak, coffee, then sweet plums and raisins, some spices.
- awesome fruity, wit a very nice balanced sherry
Deeper black fruit dried fruit than 20+ Dona, dried salted fruit, plum syrup, oloroso, tangerine peel, plum sugar, honey, woven with a very sweet smell of sulfur, mandarin fish, anise, pepper, Spiced powder, wet old oak and prunes, kernels in powder form, yellow curry powder?
It ’s still a familiar recipe and a familiar taste. The oloroso features are not too outstanding. The salt and sulfur flavors that embellish the effect are complemented by the thick dried fruit and oak flavor. Very dry woody scent rarely appears in the year, which is quite commendable.
Sweet water, Shirley soup, oak dregs, a little tannin and rubber, melon scoop, kumquat lemon tea, black chocolate, coffee, and a slightly sour and astringent fat feeling at the end.
Sophisticated balance, enter the hall, get the kitchen.
Long-lasting, aromatic woody flavor, dark fruit, black cleverness, oily fragrance.
Time gave everything and took away some more.
