    • Nose
      Deeper than 20+ Donna, the black fruit dried fruit, salted fruit, syrup, oloroso, dried tangerine peel, plum, honey, woven with a little sulphur, squid, fennel, pepper, Allspice, damp old oak with plum fruit, powdered baked nuts, yellow curry powder?

      Still familiar formula, or familiar taste, oloroso characteristics are not too prominent, the salt and sulfur that play the role of the scent and the thick dried fruit and oak taste complement each other, the Dolly Shirley barrel has a special feature is high Very dry woody smells are rare in the year, which is quite commendable.
    • Taste
      Small sweet water, Shirley soup, oak slag, slightly tannins with rubber, melon scoop, kumquat lemon tea, black chocolate, coffee, the tail has a comfortable slightly sour taste.

      Sophisticated balance, enter the hall, get the kitchen.
    • Finish
      Long-lasting, aromatic woody, dark fruit, black and oily.

      Time gave everything and took away some.

    Colour: Amber
    Nose: Rich, intense, spicy, on vegetal condiment, orange,
    tangerine and some honey sweetness. More marked by the sherry than the 1972.
    Taste: Mellow, spicy, intense, slightly tannic, on berries,
    tangerine, orange and some papaya. The finish is long, slightly dry, tannic and
    General Impression: An excellent GlenDronach. Even if the
    1972 was darker, the influence of the sherry is stronger in the 1971, with more
    spices and also more tannins.
