  1. WhiskyCasual scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Tasting a sample, not adding water
    • Nose
      91 91
      Instead of dark, heavy sherry aromas comes to me a rather fresh smell with hay, malt and some pineapple. This is joined by fir honey, the association with Canch√°nchara (mostly lime ..) and some furniture polish
    • Taste
      90 90
      Starting with a slightly alcoholic tingle, the whisky spreads throughout the mouth. Some cherry, almond, marzipan and orange chocolate. He remains relatively fresh. The initial sweetness gives way to a dryness ..
    • Finish
      92 92
      .. which continues in the medium-long to long finish and even gets a little drier. It comes through again a little pineapple, a slight bitterness in the form of pomelo, finally dark chocolate, red fruits (mainly raspberry) and a slightly mineral note, which spontaneously brings me a little to the 20-year-old Springbank bottling "For Dutch Springbank Lovers" from the sherry barrel remind.

      Conclusion:
      Unusual but delicious Glendronach.
      I like the dry finish, the taste is behind the smell for me.

    • Nose
      94 94
      Cooked berry compote, sweetened cornelian cherries, fruit bread, leather, wonderful herb spice note (rosemary, lovage, but also a touch of heather), dusty farmer's cabinet
    • Taste
      92 92
      Deep dark fruits, cigar box, the mouthfeel becomes increasingly creamy, woody-herbaceous aromas of the nose are also here through beautifully, in the second sip also clearly pepper and the fruit bread from the nose. Alcohol wonderfully integrated, exemplary for CS. Overall, but slightly thinner than the nose aromas.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium long, pleasantly warming, menthol freshness, light nut bitterness, some tobacco; unfortunately can not keep the level

    Had this at the distillery during the connoisseur's tour. Much lighter and weaker flavor profile than some previous 1993&1992 hand fills. Did not purchase after tasting it. totally not worth 265quid
