  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    4th bath:
    oloroso!
    explosive nose, heavy!
    • Nose
      old wood impregnated with alcohol, with chips that fall apart, fruits ripe, cooked, candied, caramelized in the bottom of pan, honey, old walnuts oozing, with the oily side, almost wax:
      dark chocolate, grapes cooked with, strong sweet spices. Concentrated coffee smell too.
      there are these Santons put down the tree with the gingerbread.
    • Taste
      intense woody fragrances, open spice box!
      fruits cooked with stewed black cherries, grapes, orange and tangerine cooked on the corner of the fire, then a little caramelized, chocolate more present, a little dust on the old varnished furniture.
    • Finish
      nuts, candied orange, stubborn woody for a long and persevering finish!

    I directly compared my GlenDronach 14 yo 1996 Oloroso Sherry Butt Cask 202. It sounds (though dense and powerful) a significantly lighter look than this five years older version. And those five years is damn well. This is a very brutal leach of a barrel. Extremely dense and concentrated whisky, probably the darkest whisky I ever drank, with color, smell, taste and overall tone. Top. It tasted great and it was a great tasting experience. Feeling as if you were drinking thirty-year-old or even older whisky.
    • Nose
      The smell sounds very dark. She quite reminds me of nuts. Bee honeycombs. The rust of rum (some of the heavier and better plantations and yes, and the liquor in the style of Presidente Marti). Leather, burnt raisins on a Christmas tree, exotic wood, sandalwood, cedar, cigar boxes. Drop five drops of water to 30 ml of whisky. Wood, raisins, slightly windy. (93 b)
    • Taste
      Roasted raisins, povidly potions, lots of exotic wood, sandalwood, cloves, chocolate and tobacco. In reverberation, a heavily taned barrel. (93 b)

    It's very good in his register, which is not really mine. Very (too) concentrated, with a lot of wood. I remain convinced that all these Glendro Single Casks of the early 90's are to forget 20 or 30 years in a cellar to win the fade and finesse that will perhaps be the Tormore Samaroli of tomorrow.

    Tasting notes from the Label

    NoseComplex toasted oak aromas with an almost earthu presence. This is followed with treacle, nuts and wild honey.

    AppearanceRich cherry wood. Almost tawny, leading to a yellow edge.

    PalateA solid platform of sherry, spices fruit and toasted nuts with a surreal balance of vanilla and honey. Long and well craffted.

    Transferring previous Note (2011.11.29) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      thick sweet and fruity sherry, musty forrest/leafs, fermented fruit, chocolate, woody / oak bark, slightly mineral/stoney, (91)
    • Taste
      first: oily, dark chocolate, freshly cooked marmalade, red wine-y, quite a bit of wood, tobacco,  (89)
    • Finish
      nice length & balance of sherry, sweetness & wood,  (89)
      later: some sour but pleasant notes in the finish next to some dry dark wood, wood seems to turn dryer over time(86)

    Unfortunately too much alcohol in the mouth without water. In any case, a big chocolate sherry.
    • Nose
      Rather on slightly acidic red fruits as well as cherries with brandy and prune. Pretty winey. Aeration gives him the greatest good: chocolate, light earthy notes (humus), hazelnut. With water, the nose is more grassy which brings additional complexity and very pleasant. Pudding too!
    • Taste
      Alcohol is too much present is waste pleasure. The mid-palate is more settled: woody and spices begin to appear. Chocolate too. With water, we no longer have this alcoholic attack. Again, a slight herbaceous side (hay ... in any case it's nice) takes place and combines with toffee and cocoa. By cons, with water, the mouth loses relief, and remains relatively flat.
    • Finish
      Relatively long on tobacco and spices.

    Rich sherry, I am impressed with the nose, its smells like it a 40y
    and the colour is amazing
    Chocolat, rich prunes, nice oak background, and a hint of earth
