...which is one of the most unusual Glendronach I had so far, most probably they used some uncommon sherry casks for this batch. Is it good or bad - not too sure. At least it is very interesting and all in all, nice to drink but there are many better drams out there if you want to invest that much money.
The nose is quite shy right after serving and opens up very slowly only. Even some water does not really help here.
The taste is fat, sweet and balanced but there are not so many different flavours as one would expect from such an old sherry maturation. It is somehow simple, but with a very nice simplicity.
The finish dries out as what could be expected after looking at the colour of this stuff and recognising its age. It is a little short and not very complex, again. Use water careful only as this dram is not a good swimmer.
