    Just arrived and tasted. It is not as much of a fruity sherry bomb as it's sister cask that is for sure, but I personally like it a little better.
    This cask delivers more of the dry, leather and tabacco notes, that I really love in the finish after the usual sweet sherry notes dissipate. It does not have the slight sulfury notes of the GAS cask.
    My perfect whisky would be the nose and the body of the GAS cask with the exit and finish of this one (I tried blending them, it was a huge mistake don't do it!).

    I do not know how Glendronach does it, but those single casks from the early 90s are always nothing but perfect.

    No sherry punch that overdoes it, not too much alcohol, long lingering aftertaste and a perfect harmony of Glendronach character and subtle sweetness.

    It's a disaster that the prices have skyrocketed in 2020. I will miss those bottles.

    As good as cask #7434 tiny weaker on finish but really amazing dram! Will try to buy another bottle for future before sell out.

    The nose hits you. You have to process this abundance of flavors first. There is nothing disturbing here. Great aromas of light and dark fruits mixed with a bit of mustiness in the background, which is absolutely not distracting. In the mouth, driven by a good 58% a fruity taste explosion, the fruits cover the wood spice, which shows somewhat in the finish. The finish is very long and is characterized by the intense fruit aromas. At the very end, the barrel shows a minimal bitterness that is absolutely not disturbing.
    I give this GD 93 pts, considering that there are 7 points left, I don't know what highlights to fill them with.
