    Serge from whiskyfun says:

    Glendronach 8 yo (80° proof, OB, UK, 26 2/3 fl ozs., +/-1970)  Colour: gold. Nose: ah, fruits! Its got that impressive fruitiness that could be found in early ‘naked’ Glendronachs, between pink grapefruits and kiwis, while the background remains sooty, oily and ashy, around an old garage or things like that. It’s really interesting to see how those two main aromas blend and collaborate, but that’s something that could also be seen in old Laphroaig. Gracious nose, just a bit shy. Mouth: most older malt enthusiasts already know how good these bottlings could be, and this is just another example. Should anyone try to smoke grapefruits one day, this is probably what you would get. Touches of passion fruits as well, and yet again, quite a pinch of salt. The spirit itself is relatively fat, but the grapefruits lift it. Finish: long, wonderfully citrusy, with hints of coffee, perhaps from the wood. The aftertaste is tarrier. Comments: makes you think of a greasy Springbank. This is potent malt whisky. SGP:462 - 90 points.
