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 €
Light and fruity, mainly banana and some apricots, but finally a touch of orange zest too. There's a whiff of breakfast tea, bung cloth and macadamia nuts also. Not the most expressive, but satisfying nonetheless.
Rather oily and sweet at first (vanilla custard, caramel, honey), quickly overtaken by spicy pepper and hot ginger, the oak being just a tad too present.
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.
