fantastic dram, but tasted at a time that the bottle is really expensive, 300 euro or up, that`s my bad luck

I payed 450$ or 435€ on whiskybase for this bottle. I don't know who the clown is that quotes it at 200€, but you ain't gonna get it at that price.

N: l’alcol è rimasto in Scozia, lasciando questo whisky bello aperto. C’è qui una robusta, indelebile staffilata (eh?) di ‘dolcezza’ zuccherina: uvetta, forse un sentore di pandoro?, poi il consueto tripudio di frutta rossa (ciliegia uber alles) e cioccolato. Brioche all’albicocca, in pieno. Sa essere cremoso, con suggestioni di zuppa inglese, ma anche conservare note meno scontate, per quanto tipiche della distilleria (aceto balsamico, funghi, legno umido). Davvero godibile e di personalità.

P: ci piace sottolineare la diversità di questo Glendronach rispetto ad altri, non ultimo l’ottimo single cask per il MWF: se di là c’erano tutte l’oscurità e l’importanza di un legno ‘scuro’, qui prevale una zuccherinità spensierata, attenzione!, mai puttanona. Ciò si sostanzia in bombe di frutta rossa (ciliegia, fragola, lampone), in note di albicocche secche. Davvero incredibile è la regale cremosità, burrosa: brioche, panettone, frutta secca (nocciola). Raro è sentire sapore di malto, negli sherry monster: qui l’incantesimo accade, celebrato dalle trombe degli alfieri di frutta secca. Noce, e burro.

F: lungo e persistente; cioccolato ai frutti rossi, frutta secca infinita. Note davvero intense di burro, di noce. Eccellente.

Davvero splendido. Una complessità notevolissima, che ci colpisce particolarmente perché tradisce le nostre aspettative: ci attendevamo uno sherry monster, e ce l’abbiamo in effetti; ma non è solo uno sherry monster, si tratta di una botte che non ha tradito il distillato e ne ha rispettato le note più personali. Detto ciò, non possiamo che ammirare la grande intensità e l’ottima qualità di aromi e sapori.

Nez sucré de Sherry. Bouche composée d’un mélange de fruits secs, de fruits compotés et de poussière. Finale très longue. Très, très bon.

Nose

Du massepain caramélisé, des fruits secs (raisin en tête), du kirsch, de la cannelle, du clou de girofle, du tabac blond, du bois vernis. C’est très complexe, ça sent super bon, et c’est assez éloigné (point de vue profil) de beaucoup de Glendronach officiels en fût de sherry.

Taste

Attaque douce et suave sur les fruits rouges confits et secs. L’alcool est perceptible, bien que parfaitement intégré. La bouche, bien qu’agréable, est beaucoup moins complexe que le nez et est plus dans les standards des profils sherry.

Finish

Une légère sécheresse boisée se colle au palais. Des picotements épicés chatouillent les joues. Finale moyenne en longueur.

Comments

Dans l’ensemble ce Glendronach est bon et agréable, mais moins ‘’waouw’’, je trouve, que certains Glendronach officiels.
