    Heavy sherry balanced with good sweetness - I expected nothing else from a Glendronach - great

      Long and burning, but you really don't feel the high abv of 57.9% which is more than 100proof, still sweet, some teaish notes in the end

    One of the "5 Sisters" along with the Green Welly Stop and Abbey Whisky exclusives. Nose and palate: very similar so Ill describe together.First taste upon opening: strong impression of dark honey

    Later taste: The sweetness has faded to low-medium level. Balanced. A rivulet of oak sap and an amber line of honey stroll together down a tree trunk, each briefly outcrawling the other. English breakfast tea brewed strong. Integrated solvent, the glue on the back of envelopes. A late hum of fruitiness that is good. Intermittent and fleeting notes of elegance, tartness, dunnage warehouse. Faint ocean salt water hangs in the air but cant quite be tasted.Complexity: low - moderate. The transitions between flavors are subtle.Color: medium chestnut.Viscosity: towards the viscous side.Not: Not highly bright, not richly fruity, not oversweet, overly tannic, , smoky, bitter, sulfured, leathery, watery, or medicinal.

    Finish - a shorter to medium length buzz of oak, sometimes a fruitier note, an occasional late faint waft of a savory-salty kettle-corn note like a ben nevis or old pulteney 17.

    Overall impression : In a word, balanced. A bit muted for now, but if the fruitiness increases even slightly with oxidation I may end up liking it a lot. A more concentrated 1st cousin of 18 yo Allardice with a strong resemblance. A second cousin of vintage 1992 Mace Windu.   Less intensely fruity and rich than 653, but also minus the bitter note I get at the finish with 653, which to me makes 656 preferable.
    Score: 88.5. I expect to raise this a point or more as it improves with time.
