    Should no longer be but anyway too expensive for the little pleasure it gives. At equivalent budget there are other nuggets to discover.
    • Nose
      Fruity, beeswax, flowers, old leather, coffee, mocha.
    • Taste
      Rich and fruity with lots (too much?) Of tangerines, bitter oranges. Not enough complexity or subtlety for my taste. In short, I do not like it too much.
    • Finish
      Average on the orange peel, too one-dimensional.

    A nice, very
    quaffable GlenDronach.
    • Nose
      The nose is not quite
      as sherried as I would have expected. This is actually quite fresh and sweet.
      Mostly gooseberries, but also pineapple cubes. Honey and a bit of caramel. The
      second layeroffers some roasted nuts and almond shavings. No need for any water
    • Taste
      It is fairly soft and
      oily on the palate. Again, fresh. I get an images of lightly colored berries in
      my minds eye, instead of the expected dark fruit.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium
      long with liquorice on the deathbed.

    Producer`s Notes
    Apperance: Very old polished mahogany heart with a yellow brown edge.
    Nose: Fine, aged-Sherry qualities partnering a dark fruit base, which is well paired with a coffee mocha charm. Elegant with a fine balance.
    Palate: Poached pears and prunes structured around a central foundation of Sherry and bitter chocolate shavings.

    • Nose
      faint nose compared to other batch 5 Glendronach casks. Sherry, but somewhat thin, prunes/dried plums, oak bark, 3 berry marmalade (strawberry, blueberry, blackberry), heather, slightly grassy, spicy, vanilla pods, mochi, leather and a touch of distant smoke ? (88)
    • Taste
      lots of spices at once, lots of chocolate too, nice somewhat dark malt notes as well (Bayrisch Blockmalz), tobacco, (91)
      Later: less spicy, turning sweeter, honey, also quite a few tea notes (green & red/roiboos) (88)
    • Finish
      slightly burnt vanilla cookies, everything seems to dissapear for a second, then quite a fresh feel and notes of fruit tea, malt (Bayrisch Blockmalz again), wood, black tea, a touch metallic, dried apples & maybe mangoes coming up. (88)
      Later: nice & sweet, but a bit one dimensional now, but very pleasant honey, vanilla, licorice, pastry notes with a very nice warmth to it. At the very end again some faint dried fruits, kiwis & mangoes now ?, also with a drop of milk & white chocolate on top. A bit more pronounced & longer than before (89)
