  7. p4blo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very nice dram from Glendronach, although not exactly what the distillery name promises.
    • Nose
      A rather unusual Glendronach with very mild sherry cask influence. The first impression is that it was bourbon cask matured due to the notes of vanilla, butter cookies, even slightly herbal profile with big anise notes. After a while, butterscotch, milk chocolate and raisins appear, but they some in a subtle way, unlike typical GD sherrybombs.
    • Taste
      The taste is mildly sherried too with butter, wax, more vanilla and the development on typical sherry notes - dark fruits, mainly black and blueberries, chocolate and burnt sugar.
    • Finish
      The finish is powerful and long. The berries carry on entertaining the taste buds, together with a big pinch of pepper.
