  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Very good Glendronach as always.
    The nose and the palate are quite different, and the two profiles are pleasant and complementary to make it an exceptional dram.
    • Nose
      93 93
      Superb, extremely complex nose.
      A pretty fruit, with among others blackberry, blackcurrant, plum, green guava, papaya, pineapple ... the exoticism is not exuberant, but present.
      The wood is precious and dry, with molasses, pepper, and a large dose of camphor which adds a controlled freshness.
      Very light cold charcoal, tobacco, dry hay.
    • Taste
      93 93
      The palate opens with oak, and an exoticism much more lively than on the nose.
      Mango, passion, banana, plum, orange, green pineapple, currant. Superb.
      The wood is lightly varnished, accompanied by oily leather, cinnamon, dark chocolate. We have a slight rancio.
      Dry aromatic herbs, camphor, and some smoke.
      Very nice balance.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long finish on exoticism, mango, pineapple, wood, dark chocolate, varnish and a little tobacco.
      Very light woody bitterness.
