    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.

    Not really much sherry.
    Rather the woody barrel notes.

    Already better in the mouth.
    At least it tastes a bit sweet, although the taste does not fully unfold.

    It's perfectly alright.

    Enjoyable dram, some nice aroma's and flavours, though it's not very mindblowing, just pretty subtle. Not the best GD I've had, but not bad at all.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Fruity notes, grapes, prunes, clear sherry influences. Some red wine aroma's as well. Some hints of a grassy touch. And then coffee, caramel and milk chocolate.
      Not very overwhelming but attractive.
    • Taste
      84 84
      A little pepper, sweet and fruity, peach, coffe, chocolate, some red fruits, (rasp)berry.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Still a little pepper, fruity, some berries, middle long.

    Master Blender, Rachel Barrie said:

    “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.
