    • Nose
      intense sherry and exotic fruits, wood, caramel, toffee, somehow "dark", old damp forest and forest soil and leather (these three notes disappear, however)
    • Taste
      spicy and slightly salted, lots of wood, dark fruits, some toffee, sherry, full-bodied, tingles something in the mouth at first
    • Finish
      medium length, wood, slightly hot

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2014/vier-1996er-malts-von-glendronach-im-direkten-vergleich-31860/ Color: copper / rust red
    Nose: sherry and orange marmalade with a soap-like vanilla touch, with dull notes of forest soil, humus, wet leaves and leather. The whole thing only slightly spicy with notes of olive oil and honey.
    Taste: Quite thin, initially with spicy-salty balsamic ginger, then very sweet with sugared orange marmalade, then quickly tart and peppery. Powerful wood notes come to the fore.
    Finish: Medium length - pepper-salt-wood, sweet honey aromas with flat fruity orange polish up the salty woody notes.
    85 points (nose: 87 / taste: 86 / finish: 82)
