  2. knopfler99 scored this whisky 94 points Expert Junior

    An absolutely consistent whisky like I have never experienced before, nothing stands out. No intrusive sweetness, no alcohol, no mistakes. And this wonderful wood, a dream. Note was created by a bottle division with a 2cl sample.
    • Nose
      When the sample opens, there is a smell of roasted wood and subtle smoky notes that almost disappeared in the whisky glass. What remains is the clear woody note with walnut, cinnamon-sugar, orange aroma, bitter herbs.
    • Taste
      At first he looks quite liquid in the glass, almost watery, but the first sip opens up a creamy world of pleasantly old flavors. Dried plums, spicy herbs, a great warm wood. With wonderfully integrated alcohol that is almost unperceivable and continues with a beautiful oak sharpness. Still hints of dried sweet old apples and a slight salivation.
    • Finish
      In the finish the bitter herbs are left behind and there is again the slight smoky note which could be smelled in the sample, paired with wood warmed by the fire. After an hour, the flavors were still in the mouth to taste.

  3. getz scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Recherché is a very special release indeed with 1968 being the year that the oldest maturing casks in the GlenDronach warehouses were laid down. As this bottling`s name suggests (recherché being the French for `sought out`), this cask - an Oloroso Sherry butt - was carefully selected from amongst these extraordinarily aged whiskies for its fruitiness and venerable grace.

    Just 632 bottles were produced at natural cask strength.

  5. Ralph Hiltrup did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Producer`s NoteAppearance: Dense antique mahogany with a cherry wood influence.Nose:

    Lovely balance. Clean, fresh with remarkable fruitiness. Juicy sweet

    sultanas, dates and marrons glacés centrally positioned around a bitter

    chocolate heart.Palate: Initial profile of

    freshly roasted coffee beans and a treacle tart character. This is

    succeeded with baked apples smothered with brown sugar. Brilliant

    structure
