    A beautiful
    GlenDronach that would accompany a Christmas cake perfectly.
    • Nose
      This nose is what I
      like to call deep sherry. Wonderful dark fruit with a drop of balsamico, some
      espresso, but the leading role is unmistakably reserved for marzipan. It also
      hints at something like smoked ham wrapped around a fresh dade. Umami. Oxo? But do not leave it breathing for too long, for it then gets something
      that reminds me of sneakers.
    • Taste
      It is very creamy,
      but surprisingly soft. I am not inclided, at any time, to add water to this.
      Well seasoned which gives the dark and succulent fruits a nice depth. Cloves,
    • Finish
      The finish is long
      and now the spices become very loud. Maybe I should have added a splash after

    Producer`s Notes
    Appearance: Deep gold with a distinctive dark beige appearance.
    Nose: Ripe plums and stewed apples with a generous sprinkle of all-spice. A surge of fine Oloroso adds some weight and length.
    Palate: Juicy fruits of plums and ripe damsons. This is followed by lighter summer fruit elements of peaches and nectarines. Medium to full bodied with terrific balance.

    There's no amount of bottles stated above. The label on mine states 139 from 509 bottles.
    • Nose
      Thick sherry, truffle chocolate, earthy / wet clay, dry oak, autumn leaves, red grapes, cloves & a pinch of curry. Musty, dry (oak) & juicy at the same time, nice. (90.5)
      A bit later (5-10 minutes): still most of the above but seems to turn slightly more mineral towards dry clay  and showing some raisins, wood, vanilla & licorice now. Also a slight (smoked) fish & rubber note...? (89)
    • Taste
      nice and oily mouthfeel, thick dark & juicy sherry, plums, dried & fresh, a surprisingly a fruity bitterness/astrigency  as well (I would guess towards paxarette if it were older...),  (91)
    • Finish
      fades out slowly with a nice long lasting dark sherry prickle (more from the tannins than alcohol), raisins, freeze dried plums, licorice, (89)

    Plenty of plums. Oranges. Some chocolate, cinnamon, herbs. A round full-bodied whisky. Very beautiful!
