  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Serge from Whiskyfun says:Glendronach (70° proof, Gordon & MacPhail, +/-1970) A perfect aperitif, I’d bet. Love the ‘A Perfect Self Whisky’ mention on the label, what an elegant way of saying ‘single malt’. Colour: straw. Nose: oil. Sunflower, grape pips, argan, whatever, this reeks of vegetal oil. And then, we have apple juice, grapefruits, pieces of mangos, something delicately floral (lilies), something rather ‘old Highlands’ (old motorbike, why not a Norton?), some carbon paper, drops of ink, new magazine (that would be Whisky Magazine France, of course!)… This nose reminds us that older malts used to be more complex than today’s offerings, however good those are. Facts. Mouth: kills you. Another era, other perspectives, other aims, other goals (whaaaat?) Amazing complexity – and ‘compact fullness’ at the same time. Old Sauternes, some kind of banana liqueur long forgotten in Grandma’s cabinet-just-under-the-telly, many herbal teas, some loud and clear malted barley, a wee metallic touch that often appears in these old bottles by G&M (or Cadenhead)… and all that. Above all, it’s a classy distillate. Finish: not too long, of course, but never tired, never dull, and never flabby. Some smoke. Comments: one of my favourite NAS whiskies ever. SGP:452 - 91 points.
