    To me, this malt seems to have a big influence of vanilla sweetness. A mark of American oak perhaps? Value (£75) : 5/10
    • Nose
      Very sweet with an initial burst of vanilla, Demerara sugar and caramel. Crushed hazelnuts and almonds. Red cherries and stone fruits (peaches and apricots). The some of that sherry influence with dark juicy plums and dried sultanas along with some ginger spice and cloves. A touch of dusty leather. Espresso and milk chocolate as well, like a mocha. The high ABV certainly leaves a mark as well with a slight solvent prickle.
    • Taste
      Quite hot on the palate. More sherry influence with dried fruits, raisins, fresh plum notes alongside the stone fruits. Some cinnamon and nutmeg. Some overbrewed herbal tea notes. Like the nose, loads of vanilla and brown sugar sweetness. Some dark bitter cocoa stops this from being overpoweringly sweet. Some water certainly helps tame the alcohol nip.
    • Finish
      Medium in length. Very warming as it goes down. Still sweet with vanilla and caramel. Ginger turns into chilli heat. A touch more bitter espresso and cocoa. A little hazelnut residue.

    Was this really a PX barrel? Ore one of those barrel tricks where several casks were married into a PX barrel for a short period of time. I don’t know. What I do know is that this Glendronach released under BF ownership delivers a whisky that is full on vanilla, yellow fruits like apricot, peach, orange and dry yellow raisins. It’s sweet at first but turns sour before midpalate with a very big portion of alcohol hit. Too young imho. Not my cup of tea and not how I like my PX matured GD’s.

    Nose - unobtrusive sherry, sweet, with notes of vanilla and chocolate, noticeable dried fruits such as plums, raisins and dates, as well as candied orange peel.
    Taste - Sweet, more noticeable dried fruit, toffee, light skin stained with something sweet. Bitter chocolate with a cane of vanilla, perceptible alcohol but not as much as one would expect from 11-year-old whisky. Very pleasant
    Finish - Not very long, warming. Pleasant dried cocoa fruits stay with us until the very end.
    In summary - a pleasant daily dram, in my opinion he does not need water although it allows you to soften the effect of alcohol and get to know him better. Great whisky for about 70 pounds - 87/88 points
