Boring, somewhat youthful nose, nice taste and grand finish. He makes the points mainly by the latter. In sum, however, I can not understand why I should pay for this (converted to the 0.7 liter bottle) more than for the standard Glendronach 12 years (which is a class of its own).
Glendronach Forgue 10 years about 65 € (1 liter bottle) = 45 € Glendronach 12 years about 40 €
the 1 liter bottle is fair in price; the sherry aroma gets less out the back; unfortunately also a bit bitter out the back, whereby the bitterness then disappears again. Otherwise a delicious dram that you can drink in a good round alongside.
First a clear sherry aroma together with walnut - one could interpret the roasted chestnut from this. I also have the blood orange as a fruity component from the official information. Sweet vanilla with powdered sugar and a slight hint of honey come out at the back when it stands a little.
the sherry builds up well again, along with a light spice. The vanilla is not quite as present anymore, the sweetness is also limited, but the walnuts and the orange end up getting a bit bitter (bitter orange) and "earthy". With a little imagination, the specified blackberries can be found.
short to medium length; What remains is a light spice of nutmeg and ginger, as well as the slight bitterness of roasted nuts and bitter orange. I personally don't have the tobacco that others find.
“The GlenDronach Forgue Aged 10 Years is a richly sherried single malt with an unashamedly Highland character. Matured in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks, the result is a cornucopia of bramble fruit and oak, combined with notes of harvest-ripe barley, as found in Forgue’s rich and fertile landscape.
