    Fantastic oloroso whisky, especially the nose is outstanding, but not the classic Glendronach character.

    Amontillado sherry
    Sweet raisins, blueberries, red forest fruits, ripe elderberries, leather and cardboard. In addition, traces of nuts, some tobacco, smoky underlay, sweet Turkish honey and creamy vanilla at its best. Fruity, juicy and infinitely seductive! The sherry barrel has done a great job here, so that the flavors combine completely harmoniously and perfectly balanced at the peak - sensational and top class!
    Full of flavor and full flavor. The wood here goes perfectly with the fruit of plum, elderberry and blueberry. Then there are nuts, raisins, honey, furniture polish, tobacco and fine orange liqueur. The perfect mix that gets drier towards the finish - but remains absolutely great.
    Long - the influence of wood becomes more extreme! Tart and bitter, dry with tobacco-rich humidor notes, cedar wood, tart cocoa, smoke and ever more intense wood - but also still great for non-extreme wood fans.
    Ingenious nose, perfect taste and an even more forgiving finish !.
