  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I realize that I did not take a note until the last centiliter of the bottle. Better late than never.
    By cons it is suddenly very airy. The predominant raisins here have not always been so.
    • Nose
      Pickled fruit, fig, raisins, rum.
      Almond, candied apricot, wood, herbs.
      A little mud, hay. Honey, caramel.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it remains in the same dynamic as in the nose.
      Raisins predominate, along with honey, liquid caramel.
      It feels like a semolina milk.
      Wood, leather, liquorice, mix of fatty herbs. A little tobacco and cigar.
      It's greedy.
    • Finish
      Final on herbs, burnt caramel, dry wood. Always raisins.

    N: A moorish, squidgy/fatty herbal=toffee/sugary sweet, rum/liqueur-like funky number with a little dust, some black pepper, coffee liqueur, waxy cardboard-y<mahogany=oak shavings, a little banana, cake mix, Wrigley’s spearmint gum… Again, rum-like but with an unquestionable malty core.
    T: A sherried BFG, tall & broad and yet soft/integrated with a rum=liqueur-like firm-bodied, woody, toffee-d maltiness. With water, a bourbon/candy sweet & herbal sour profile, [refreshingly PX led rather than the more blatant oloroso], with plenty of sherried chew and a slightly varnished woody freshness.
    F: Woody vanilla herbal creme fraiche. Fairly short and clean, dusty cream concluding, with however a lingering PX oaky sweetness at the death.
    C: Where oloroso appears to have the monopoly on sherry cask maturation, it’s refreshing to come across a decent PX cask. To think, this was £76 only four years ago. Investors cry, drinkers fly.Scores a B[+]

    This one seems instantly likable. No bitterness, just pure sweet PX joy. 

    I just opened my last sample about a year after I opened the bottle, and I'm still completely won over by the syrupy sweetness of this cask and its excellent velvety body.

    Tried this at a local shop tasting session where it came strongly recommended. Classic Glendronach profile on the nose, with the rich sherry and malt coming together to release a combination of rich stewed fruits, dark chocolate and some fresh barley. It really needed water to open it up, however, as otherwise it came across as rather closed and slightly monochrome. Sweet and spicy on the palate, once again needing water to release the full range of flavours. A lovely mouth-coating feel leads to a long and warming finish. Yet another wonderful Glendronach single cask. Not quite up to the level of a couple of similar age single casks I tried from 1993, but very close.
