  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Very pretty Glendronach.
    The 43% are not a big handicap even if we would have liked more power in the mouth.
    The nose is more delicious and superior to the mouth.

      Superb nose. You don't feel the reduction at all.
      A large dose of camphor fruit, wood.
      Gooseberry, Goji berry, caramel, toffee, dark chocolate, wood, cinnamon.
      Camphor, very light wax. A little nettle.
      A beautiful balanced sherry. With aeration the caramel and chocolate stand out a little more
    • Taste
      91 91
      In the mouth it is softer and a little watery.
      The wood stands out above all, with the bitterness of the cocoa.
      We have leather, cream, some dust.
      A little hay, a farmer's.
      Red fruit, strawberry, redcurrant, red cherry.
    • Finish

      Fairly woody finish. Wood, chocolate, leather, camphor.
      Bitter.

    A smooth body, slightly drying.
    • Nose
      Very heavily  sherries. Burnt-toffee dryness. Hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Starts with burnt-toffee dryness, moves to malty sweetness then to sherry sweetness.
    • Finish
      Long and smooth. Warming with some toffeeish dryness.
