    So the dram tops the cask 698 again. My personally best dronach so far. Wow. Will add a taste profile later.

    Tasted at "THE CONNOISSEUR’S TOUR" on 11-03-2019 at "Glendronach Distillery".

    I had a small dram at the distillery and remembering it wasn't impressed much at first but after about 30 min in glass it opens up in classic good sherry matured Glendronach. No sulfur or dirty notes but deep, elegant, complex and balanced dram.

    Fantastic depth of flavour. Great sherry bomb. From the distillery priced in line with similar age statement single casks. One of the best whiskies I’ve tried.

    Wow, a crazy drop! Fat sherry barrel from Glendronach without missing notes with great complexity. No sulfur, unpleasant bitterness or acidity, instead typical notes of dark fruit, dates, figs and raisins, dark chocolate, leather and tobacco. Then there is also a fine spice and beautiful wood notes. The longer you have it in the glass, the more you can discover both in the nose and on the palate. A dream for lovers of fat sherry boom, which is crowned by an endless aftertaste

    Heavily sherried but not overpowered, well balanced, sweetness and fruitiness - great!

      Punchy, oily, liquorice, subtle sweetness, more dried fruits, dates, figs, toffee, spices, nutmeg, tobacco, chocolate, heavy sherry wood, hints of coffee - still great!

    Glendronach 26yo first fill oloroso cask 7459 53.4%. Very dark ruby. Aroma has some brown sauce, plum skin, liqueur and schnapps, quite brown sauce rancio, very sherry, old dried mango left to go brown. Later on some solventy spirit heads, some browned apple. Body is oily. Taste is jammy, fairly simple but intense, rich and slightly resinous, not overly oaky considering the age, takes on the sweetness of sherry and European oak, quite simple, none of the spirit character really comes through. Yes it's extremely sherry cask influenced but not necessarily that complex. It's almost starting to taste like it's a wine again. Drinks much lower than the ABV - if I didn't know better I'd say 40% tops, and maybe less if I didn't know it was a whisky! Some lingering berry. 3.45/82

    Intense dark sherry, quite nice

    Great Glendronach, wonderful nose and a real delight on the palate. Unfortunately, it only slackens a little in the beginning. Still an excellent whisky
    • Nose
      at the beginning a spicy sherry note, plums, transitioning to notes of old wood, lots of dark fruits, in the very background slightly sweet with a little caramel, the alcohol is wonderfully integrated
    • Taste
      Strongly spicy start with intense sherry aromas, lots of plums and dark fruits, wonderful notes of old oak, very salivating, very slightly sweet in the background, becoming slightly bitter and dry at the end
    • Finish
      spicy oak, the sherry notes come more in the background, a little dark fruit, later a little dry and a little bitter.
