    • Nose
      86 86
      Blackberry, caramel, orange, candied cherry and coconut. With water there's Printen with a lot of anise. Rather restrained for a 2002 GlenDronach though, most are more aromatic.

    • Nose
      Chocolate, raisins, strawberry, dark berries.
    • Taste
      Beautiful full round taste; fantastic sherry whisky! Perfectly balanced mix of roasted nuts, fruit, chocolate, and will last for a long time.
    • Finish
      Long warm aftertaste.

  8. Xstream scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Nose: first it's quite feisty with glue, spirit and some fruit. Some water and air makes it "cool down" a bit. Get more fruit now. Strawberry, mandarin, orange, raisin, almonds, chocolate, caramel, chipolata pudding.

    Taste: medium body, not as luscious some Glendronachs can be. Quite a lot fresher too. Something sour, nutty, caramel, chocolate, fruity. With water very smooth.

    Finish: first some heat of pepper and salt, then some menthol, followed by a sharp bitterness of spices and fruits, like marmalade. Quite long, after the bitterness different flavors surface.

    Note: it's not like most other Glendronachs. Not as sherry dominated. Adding some water makes it more sweet, less bitter and better balanced.
