This old Dronach seems uber fruit on the nose, the usual dark forest fruits you get mixed with chocolate, Turkish Delight.
Some nice dark treacle notes emerge after a while but this is drowned in sherry make no mistake and I suspect any distillery profile character will be masked.
Very, very rich and the fruit is stewed to death with some dark ripe plum, fig, date and a little prune mixing with damson and black cuurant.
The overall taste here reminds me of Chambord raspberry liqueur.
With water some spice is released and also some peat which improve the overall mouthfeel
Finish is decent enough but not long, The interplay of flavours is really good.
