    N: affects the delicacy of alcohol: 60 degrees and do not feel them. At the beginning a good aroma of raisins, marsala (yes, ok, it is sherry). There are some 'dirty' notes, almost sulphurous (damp wood, rancid, mushrooms ...), but really delicate and therefore pleasant. Then, a large carpet of 'red perfumes' (cherries and sour cherries, strawberries) and fruity (dried figs). Spicy wood (cinnamon), leather, notes of sweet chocolate, orange jam ... Very well integrated, harmonious: all together, the aromas form a perfect and balanced orchestra, and from time to time the soloists give us moments of pure virtuosity, but without overwhelming the whole. With water, it opens up a lot, becomes almost smoky, increases the 'depth' much: even more woody, even more fruity ... fantastic. P: a riot. Creamy, spicy, intense. A lot of sweetness from cherry and chocolate (mon cheri), red fruits; it must be said, however, that sweetness, though very intense, does not prevail, never becomes cloying, because there is always, on the side, a simply delicious bitter side (tobacco, leather, licorice). Some notes of dried fruit (hazelnut). Perfect balance. With water, it opens on the notes of caramel and Catalan cream. Coffee. F: medium-long, not very persistent. Delicately sweet and sugary. Still raisins, cherry, pipe tobacco. Licorice. Every judgment is entirely personal, of course, but frankly we would not know what to ask more about a malt aged in sherry for about twenty years. Intensity, complexity, balance, balance. Its main defect is that we do not have any more, and we bet that anyone wishing to find others would be left with dry mouth. http://whiskyfacile.com/2012/04/23/glendronach-1993-2012-ob-cask-1610-605/
