  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Sherry dream. Intense, spicy, fruity. Lots of spices, less sweet. Menthol. That comes over very well, maybe a touch too tart.

    When the right malt meets the right cask for the right time, there is reason to bring you back with the whole world!

    • Nose
      Rich and enticing. The perfect mix between fruits, wood, and (oloroso?) sherry. Dry fruits (walnut marzipan, sultanas) and cooked fruits (all kind of "dark" jams such as figs or black cherries). Some roasting aromas too (coffee liqueur). Reminds me of a "Black Russian" (Kahlua and Vodka). Nothing sluggish though, thanks to a rancio-like tangy note, like in a high end Madeira. Perhaps a little ripe pomegranate as well? I really like it, but will the mouth follow the nose?
    • Taste
      Yup it does! Dry fruits are on the foreground, and it's as tasty as a hazelnut liqueur, accompanied by some tantalizing cocoa flavours. Enhanced by a slight woody sourness,  it's as waxy and creamy as in a dream. Like drinking spoonfuls of maple syrup. We're probably pretty close to 55%, but the balance is fantastic. The rise of a hint of burnt wood brings some more complexity to this absolutely delightful malt.
    • Finish
      Long and tasty, it vanishes on a subtle woody bitterness.

  4. Ivynor scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Superb product, very sherry, and very fine.
    • Nose
      Nose very nice, although not explosive. Ultradomine sherry: lots of nuts, dates, wood, vanilla and caramel.
    • Taste
      Superb: sweet, on dried fruits (always lots of nuts), spices, caramel. It's very fine. Notes of liquorice, toffee, raisins, coffee, and cooked plums. It's quite "raw bole cognac".
    • Finish
      A quality finish, very long, on dried fruits, toffee, spices (exotic wood, maybe clove and nutmeg, but without conviction) and coffee.

  7. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This cask was a safe choice. It has a few nice touches (oak polish, gingerbread) while remaining within the "classic" profile everyone has come to expect from GlenDronach single casks.
    • Nose
      Nice sherry, powerful and round. Dried fruits, some nutty notes. Very polished with some waxed furniture, similar to the great GlenDronach 1992 cask #161 in that respect. Blackberry jam and figs, maybe even some black cherries. Sparkling top notes of orange liqueur and mint as well. Rum & raisins. Plenty of good sherry associations.
    • Taste
      Rather oily, not really thick or powerful. Starts on dried fruits again, with some added herbal notes and polished oak. Plums. Cocoa. Not extremely complex, but very pleasant. Nice gingerbread and aniseed in the end.
    • Finish
      Quite long, a little drier, with some tobacco now and some oak and spices.
