    http://www.weinkenner.de/2014/glendronach-ist-nicht-gleich-glendronach-fuenf-malts-aus-dem-jahr-1993-im-detail-check-31795/ Color: copper / rust red
    Nose: Peppery sherry sweet, orange peel, snuff, preserving gum, fresh mint and oak. The suggestive aromas of dried wild berries can not really affect the fresh-artificially acting notes positively.
    Taste: Slightly spicy, alcoholic orange liqueur, salty and powerful. But then quickly drifting off herb. Aromas of bitter herbal tea and honey bread come through. The whole thing quite thin, but very long-lasting due to the strongly alcoholic note.
    Finish: Medium length - tart cedarwood, oak, bitter almonds and nuts - getting more and more bitter (when the alcohol has subsided). It leaves aromas of green nutshell and oak back.
    Note: All flavors are based on alcoholic strength!
    85 points (nose: 85 / taste: 87 / finish: 82)
