    Excellent full, sweet and intense sherry keg-matured malt. Very complex and complex. For me is not considering the price before the GD 18 years.

      full and very complex; distinct sherry note; Sweet; dark fruits in alcohol (including prune, raisin); spices; a little heavier sweeter than the 18J
    • Taste
      91 91
      heavy and complex; very oily-creamy in the mouth, very sweet onset; Dried fruits, beautifully integrated dry oak
    • Finish
      91 91
      long and a bit dry; very spicy; Sweetness holds, in addition to light, slightly bitter notes, slightly nutty

    Long-time Glendronach fan. Unfortunately, the core range has drastically changed over time (not for the better). I think this is well worth the price tag and prefer it by a mile over the Allardice, but I can't stop myself from comparing this to what it used to be.

      At first nosing you think this is a dark rum. After it settles you get a super sweet and bright sherry nose - toffee, pecans, and rum-soaked raisins - and then whiffs of smoke.

      Really sweet and meaty... like honey glazed hickory-smoked beef jerky. Some leathery and chocolatey notes. Too simple, too sweet, and not much sherry character!
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium, a little herbal, some chocolate, and the hickory smoke continues.

    In store tasting...

    A very good easy sherry bomb, syrupy texture and quite sweet. Very quaffable. Not sure on what batch. Preliminary 88 points

  9. Andytka3 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    As been told, this is a new composition by new master blender with new direction....

    N- Custard sugar, cola sweet from the px oozing thru, if u like the sweet px, good news. Sweetened Olorosso with plum, spices, well aged Caribbean rum with whiff of oak shaving. Sweet herbs, old book, old carton box, with waxy red fruit liquorice. Mostly px restricted the width and amplifying the shallow level, a softy. (87/21)

    P- Elegant, expensive leathery notes, more olorosso built up on palate for boldness, spicy sherry coat with ample of creamy sugar laden of fruits. (89/22)

    F- Medium-long, velvet and silky, absolutely delicious, echoing chewy smooth tannin, dry smoke herbs. (90/22)

    Body/Balance- 87/21

    Weighted Rate- 86pt, still good stuff, but no way near the level of the robust 2014 batch.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
