    Oak and sherry. I've had the 10, 12 and 15 in a row before this, and it seems more one-dimensional than especially the 15. The wood seems to overpower the more delicate notes.

    Nose:- Promising welcome nose of rich dark fruits, but fast faded away and don't last long in the glass. Thin body.

    Palate:- Crisp and clean, mild spice. Some honey and vanilla. Depends on what we expect from a 18YO, not bad but lack presence.

    Finish:- Medium length, hint of fruits cake. Light, non spicy.

    sergeColour: full gold. Nose: less talkative than the 15, kind of shy for a while and
    curiously grassier and leafier. Quite some tea, banana skin, orange cake and
    lastly, apple peels. So yes, it’s very nice but I liked the nose of the 15
    better (just like with the Glendronach 15 and 18). Mouth: yes, I definitely
    mile the 15 better, although both are closer together on your palate. This time
    we have rather more pepper and other dry and even drying spices (big nutmeg,
    even bigger cinnamon), then quite some cocoa powder and a leafiness that may be
    a notch dissonant in this context. More and more pepper. Finish: very long
    (really, how do they do that?) and pretty tannic and dry. The aftertaste is very
    peppery again. Comments: as I said, the 15 anytime, and I’m even wondering
    whether I don’t even like the very nice 12 a little better. Nah, let’s not
    exaggerate.
