  1. DistiLesha scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    An 11 year old Macallan pulling a 28 year old Glendronach!
    Appetizing, soft sherry whisky.
    Obviously, an 11-year-old Macallan wouldn't look like this today! It's a pity that the price of this release is not what it used to be :)

    • Nose
      Chocolate, thick sherry balsamic vinegar, dried fruit, slight sulphurousness and metallic echoes, furniture lacquer, hot spices, vanilla.
      Second nose: Tobacco, tropical fruits with hazelnuts, frankincense.
      Saturation: 8/10
    • Taste
      Soft, buttery, velvety.
      A continuation of the nose with its balsamic and chocolate.
      The roundness is not 100%, there is a slight roughness.
      Pastries with creamy, vanilla ice cream, poured with sherry, a noticeable amount of tropical fruits, an abundance of burning, hot spices.
      Lots of woody notes, more typical of old whiskys - a library.
      With water, a rich, coppery, metallic taste is felt brighter.
      Saturation: 9/10
      Sweetness: 9/10
    • Finish
      Tannins, apricot, chocolate, prunes, light almond bitterness.
