    http://www.weinkenner.de/2014/vier-1996er-malts-von-glendronach-im-direkten-vergleich-31860/ Color: light gold
    Nose: Very fruity and unusual compared to its younger predecessors. Lime and some lemon juice, vanilla, toffee and apple flavors. Here, too, a flat-flowery gum note with fresh lemon balm extract.
    Taste: Maritime, floral note with lemon, salt, honey and vanilla. In addition to light herbal aromas, but this time are not harsh - all in all, a rather thin mouthfeel!
    Finish: Long - maritime and good! No wood, but otherwise less or soft - apart from maritime vanilla flavors. Towards the end, a very small amount of wood is added.
    Note: Similar to a few "lighter" bourbon cask bottlings from Port Ellen!
    88 points (nose: 87 / taste: 89 / finish: 88)

    Wonderful whisky. Do not water it though.
    • Nose
      Honey toffee, gently floral, the underlying malt is so sweet. Maybe a hint of mustiness and a bit nutty.
    • Taste
      Beautiful flavour development. The sweetness is enveloped in a cloud of floral and spice notes.
    • Finish
      Gentle lingering cinnamon and soft spices.
