  1. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Really nice whisky. Very good balance between sweetness and oak. But they set the tone overall. I don't have that much to complain about. Only a little more fruitiness might have been nice. But that is admittedly complaining at a high level.
    It was nice to have tried it and I liked it.
    • Nose
      The alcohol can already be felt undiluted, but never disturbing. In addition, dark aromatic oak tones. A bit hearty for a short time and grilled meat comes to mind. Cocoa. Dark fruits. Rum raisins. Figs. Not really cute though. Suggested wax. In addition a mixture of fresh and rotten wood.
      With a little water it opens up even more, becomes fruity and a little sweeter.
    • Taste
      In the mouth now sweeter than you would expect from the nose. Creamy. Reminds of Black Forest cake. Delicious. Tart chocolate pudding. After that, the oak spreads out again in a pleasant yet expressive way. Noticeable wood spice, nice tingling. Plus tree bark.
    • Finish
      Black tea with milk. Roasted chestnuts. Some liquorice.

    Great color. Scent: a dream, sherry, raisin, nothing intrusive, alcohol perfectly integrated, sweetness, maybe a little honey, nuts, butterscotch, an idea of glue, a very delicate smoky note in the background, harmonious, complex bouquet. Taste with a little water: harmonious, very intense, tasty, a little sweetness, raisins in rum, nice development in "waves", a little oak perfectly integrated, dark chocolate, alcohol harmoniously integrated, mouth coating, a little ginger (very light astringent), very varied, long finish, delicate Glendronach-typical smoky note in the background, complex and multi-layered. A beautiful old Glendronach.

    A 10cl sample was tasted.
    Regarding the tasting notes, tommy12 has already said everything.
    A wonderful whisky, even for € 300 to € 400.

    Nice nose, red fruits, tobacco, leather and a delicious Earl Gray tea note, nothing of the alcohol to be noticed. On the palate then heavily alcoholic, not at all great ... a little later dry, dark chocolate, espresso, then red fruits, all of this repeats in waves in the finish with a pleasant dry light oak note, here again nice.
    I tried to work with water, unfortunately that tended to increase the massive alcohol note and didn't improve the whole thing. A shame ... because the nose and the finish were very nice ... I expected more from that.
