  1. P.A.O.K.you_are did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Glendronach 40 yo 1971/2011 (47.5%, OB, PX Sherry puncheon, cask # 1248, 545 bottles)
    We’ve already tried a handful of sister casks, all ex-PX puncheons. I
    tend to prefer oloroso, but they were all to my linking. Colour: dark
    amber. Nose: starts appropriately varnishy and even solventy, but that
    should go away. And does go away. And then, we experience an avalanche
    of red berries, rich black pipe tobacco, prunes, strawberry jam,
    chocolate, juicy raisins and, indeed, old Pedro Ximenez. Touches of
    cloves and aniseed in the background. Mouth: extremely rich, prune-y and
    chocolaty. Plum jam, soft liquorice rolls, a spoonful of raspberry
    liqueur, blackcurrants, marmalade, a touch of some kind of sweet curry
    sauce, black raisins, coffee-schnapps… All rich and good, even if it
    tends to become a tad grapey. Finish: quite long, still very rich, but
    not exactly cloying. Liqueur-filled chocolate in the aftertaste.
    Comments: no wonder this baby did so well at the Malt Maniacs Awards in
    2011. A 1972 oloroso smashed it (no wonder), but it still won very solid
    gold. SGP:651 - 91 points.
