  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Plums, prunes, burnt wood - less later. Jam of red fruits galore. Depth but, it is also fresh and dynamic. Very generous, from the beginning of the tasting. With the opening, honey and some subtle notes of Provence herbs.
      With a few drops of water, generous notes of malt come to change the profile, a little less juicy and fruity but rounder.
    • Taste
      Beautiful spices - cinnamon, and many others. Jam of plums, apricot. Never too sweet. Of great intensity.
      The texture is thicker with a few drops of water.
    • Finish
      it sparkles with exotic fruits and black fruits. Very persistent.

      It is a wonder.

      Enthusiasm 5/5

    Nose: Plum jam. Wet earth. Tobacco leaves, leather, some tropical fruits salad, and sultanas dipped in honey. very rich, and sweet!

    Palate: Bitter dark chocolate. Plums , prunes , Xmas cake. Cinnamon. Spice. Cloves, followed by wood and died apricot and sultanas, a bit dusty. A very rewarding palate, wintery, best sipped on a cold day with the fire burning (obviously not in Israel, or this part of it anyways)

    Finish :coffee, wood, and bitter sweet prune jam with a bit of damp wood too.

    I am a sucker for huge sherried drams , especially the ones from Glenrronach, and this one is wonderfully so. As good as it gets in this depertmant anyways. If you’re not a sherry head, then you might not go for this sort of dram. but hey, more for me.

    Colour: Amber.
    Nose: Rich, meaty (game), fuity, on old furniture, orange,
    tangerine, red berries and some papaya.
    Taste: Rich, spicy, tannic, fruity, on leather, tangerine,
    orange and red berries. The finish is long, dry, rich, woody and tannic, on
    chocolate, old furniture, tangerine and orange.
    General Impression: An excellent nose, unfortunately, the
    tannins are too present for me.

    Good powerfull sherried Glendronach, but not nearly as good as the other '72s I've tasted

  7. lexus scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    More seductive nose and attack than mouth / final ... not very homogeneous ... a little too woody.
    • Nose
      Nose: Round and very complex, precious wood, cigar box, encaustic, date jam, black tea on a background of pepper and clove oil. Very nice nose that invites to meditation.
    • Taste
      Taste: Quite faithful to attack, woody / spicy nose, with a little side "antiseptic" ... then opens on bitter chocolate.
    • Finish
      Final / Long and warm enough, it persists on waxed precious wood, aromatic tobacco, with a bitterness present on grapefruit and ginger ... somewhat drying and ... disappointing
