  3. Thermidor scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    In retrospect I think I unnecessarily wasted some of this stuff by sipping with only a little water at first. Even though it's bottled at <50% it feels like the best, most persistent taste was found with a lot of water. A pro swimmer cask.

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/glendronach-single-casks-at-its-best-1972-batch-7-vs-1971-batch-11-36790/ Color: Amontilado sherry
    Nose: Very harmonious and round with fantastic aromas of honey, balsamic, herbs, nuts and tobacco leaves, which are provided with relatively discreet spice. The salty minerality easily gets the upper hand and is accompanied by some peppermint with a light chocolate touch. In between, at times a little paraffin and delicate gum, which, however, does not interfere at any time. Now the fruit component comes into play: aromas of elderberry, plums and dark berries are spiced up again and again with fresh mint and eucalyptus.
    Taste: Properly fat for 40yo - round and harmonious with dark berries (blackberries), passion fruit, sweet honey, leather and onset, dry wood. Hints to the finish of floor wax, nuts and Turkish mocha and thus a bit tart.
    Finish: Medium long - with lots of wood that dries up the finish a bit. But again, the fruity, dark berries, which, however, have a lot of effort against the wood. With complementary notes of coffee, mocha and chocolate.
    93 points (nose: 94 / taste: 93 / finish: 91)

    Takemoto Katsuhiko 【First】 Dark Amber Obviously Red Image Kyou (+) Big Peak Plum Strawberries are certain but there is a feeling of confirming its existence by sucking a big fragrance (in the existing release it is not about the front strawberry of C # 712) With the passage of time Bitter chocolate It is unusual that Sherry-derived elements are weakened over time, like red-yellow tropical fruits (not as viscous as papaya and mango), pineapple, grapefruit peels appear (+++) 【Body】 Kyou · Big Peak element derived from high quality Sherry thick, bitter chocolate oblated, woody (not moderately exceeded) Royal to oily 【Finish】 Returning, the nose escaping firmly A sense of aging felt even with the high (++) scent in the previous release, the red yellow fruit taste is left, the weak spice, the astringentness is reasonable, there is char I feel a burning but there is no sulfur explosive http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=22051

  7. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    This whisky is very deep, elegant, balanced and stands out from the crowd.
    • Nose
      Iodine, gooseberry, different wood shades, nuts, leather, tobacco, old sherry, chocolate. You always discover new flavors - very complex and simply wonderful.
    • Taste
      The nose is reflected here again. Add to that a nice mix of pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium to long and very elegant.

  8. dankin scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Promises a lot in the nose, but does not quite keep everything in the taste.
    • Nose
      Sticky sweet, burnt candiz sugar, caramel, raisins, old leather, bouillon, sweetened plum juice.
    • Taste
      Salty, dark chocolate (70% cocoa), slightly bitter, still sweet.
    • Finish
      Medium long and dry

  9. Rossi99 scored this whisky 92 points Member Senior

    A bit sharp and with more flowery influences.. 

    It's the typical 1972... not too bad and just not that good!
    Compared to other stunning casks..but still a grand drams!!
