  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [September, 2017]  There were so many different Glendronach single casks released over the last decade that it is impossible to try them all (except you owntwo or better three livers).  Nevertheless I try one from time to time and preferably older releases like this one.

    The colour is chestnutoloroso sherry and the texture shows some slow legs and medium tears.  The nose offers a typical modern sherry profile without flaws but without highlights too.  The mouthfeel is a little hot and peppery but nicely coating.  The taste is very sweet with all the sherry-induced flavours one can think of, very quaffable.  The finish is of medium length and vanishes nicely in waves.  Water smoothes the dram and improves both the mouthfeel and finish, I like it better when reduced (one point up).

    Another high quality Glendronach release that is great but not stellar.  Very sippable, indeed...

    Transferring previous Note (2011.11.29) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      fruity sherry, raspberry jam, dusty, a bit of burnt wood smoke,
      butter, bready/starchy, goose feathers (?). (88)
      Later: less fruity, caramelizing sugar in a pan, vanillin, cappucino,
      some tobacco, slightly leathery as well (87)
    • Taste
      very pleasant sweetness, some chocolate notes alcohol incredibly
      well integrated for +60%, there`s a dry peak when going into the
      finish, dusty, some tannins (86)
    • Finish
      walnuts, shortbread, somewhat hot, woody dryness remains for
      most of the finish, still pleasant sweetness next to it, but not as much
      complexity as I hoped for. Later a few bitter notes seem to join the
      dryness as well (85)

  6. Malt Hans scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Woody and peaty aroma, heather honey, virginia tobacco, black currants, smoked bacon, ripe pear, furniture polish, peaches and custard. Marzipan sweet aroma, ginger, pepper, anise, vanilla, roasted chestnuts and malt. Long, spicy and malty end.
