way with great elegance and complexity. This dram is incredibly rich,
powerful and savoury. A gorgeous example of a seriously mature sherried
GlenDronach in perfect balance. Another big shot of vintage 1993 - you
have to taste this at least once in your lifetime.
Boy, this is rich and intense. Full of dark dried fruit, raisins, and
dates, followed by delicate dark chocolate and fine marzipan. Liquorice,
a touch of dark marmalade, classic bold sherry notes with a significant
touch of coffee and a whiff of leather in the back. No signs of sulphur
at all. A gorgeous nose - you can smell this all day long!
Rich and powerful. The alcohol bite tickles the tongue a bit. No wonder,
it's almost 60% abv! Nicely sweet with dark cherries, dates and
raisins, lovely coated in dark chocolate. Mouth-coating with Demerara
sugar and a rich deep array of sherry flavours. Liquorice, pleasant
stewed plums and a smooth note of walnuts, deliciously mixed with oaky
tannins in the back. Fantastic!
The finish is very long, warm, round and sticky sweet with sherry-soaked
raisins, coated in dark bitter chocolate. Plenty of liquorice and dried
walnut nicely linger with coffee and expresso beans on the tail.
WITH WATER: The fruitiness is a bit tamed on the nose
with a few drops of water, leading more chocolate flavours to the fore.
Liquorice and marzipan accompanied by plenty of sherry and oak spice in
the back. Sweet and creamy on the palate with lots of sherry, dates and
raisins. The spiciness and alcohol bite is slightly tamed. The finish is
still long, tender sweet and noticeable drier with coffee beans,
walnuts, leather and oak.
