- 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.

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

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
