couleur ambre foncé, nez très marqué par le sherry, avec beaucoup de café, puis les arômes classiques d'un bon Glendro, chocolat, noisette, un peu noix, fruits secs... En bouche les 59% passent tout seuls, grosse ampleur, beaucoup de café, assez sec mais jamais trop notamment grâce à une belle texture épaisse. Bonne longueur, toujours sur le café, le chocolat, la noix, les épices (girofle). Très belle version, du niveau du 1993 Abbey Whisky.

Nose

Il vous cloue sur votre canapé des l'ouverture. Un vieil et vénérable fût d'oloroso secco avec tout ce qu'on peut attendre de notes tertiaires: cèpes d'Italie fins et parfumés, craie, olive verte en saumure, chocolat extra-dry artisanal, gianduja mais aussi orange de Séville, citron de Menton... Wouf! Profond et intense.

Taste

La même chose. Peut-être quelques degrés de trop au niveau de l'alcool. Il faudra essayer avec de l'eau.

Finish

Très long! Suave, parfumé, jouissif.Persistance sur la fraise  écrasée et... le sang!

Comments

Bahoum! Un cran en- dessous du fût n°3, c'est certain; mais cela reste une petite tuerie pour amateur d'oloroso sec ( je parle du vin, bien sûr).

Avis de LMDW :

D’ambiances solaires en tonalités plus sombres, de rangs de vignes en jardins secrets, ce Glendronach est tellement riche que chaque étape de la dégustation possède son propre univers et peut se suffire à elle-même. Ainsi, le nez rend hommage au Palomino, cépage roi de l’appellation Xérès de la Frontera, la bouche oscille entre classicisme et originalité et la finale est débordante d’énergie et rayonnante de luminosité.
Profil : capiteux (pivoine, pétales de rose), original (tomates séchées), vineux, fruité (fraise, groseille, mandarine), empyreumatique (toile émeri, cuir). Exotique (mangue, grenade). Du sel sur la pruine des raisins Palomino.

Note de dégustation LMDW
Couleur : acajou à reflets verdâtres.

Nez : spirituel, envoûtant. Capiteux (pivoine, pétales de rose), original (tomates séchées), vineux, fruité (fraise, groseille, mandarine), empyreumatique (toile émeri, cuir), le premier nez se montre également particulièrement exotique (mangue, grenade). Au fur et à mesure, une fine pellicule de sel vient se déposer sur la pruine des raisins Palomino.

Bouche : capiteuse, charnelle. Une fine amertume fruitée (amande, noix, citron) enrobe d’autres fruits (raisin sec, datte, figue, melon). Elle ouvre son jardin secret pour délivrer des notes de potimarron, de fleur de courgette et de potiron. D’un classicisme parfait, elle évolue sur le chocolat, le tabac à pipe et les cerises à l’eau de vie. La fin de bouche est envahie par les saveurs sucrées du chèvrefeuille et du miel de tilleul.

Finale : longue, elle déborde d’énergie et de vitalité. Des fruits rouges et noirs (fraise, mûre), du gingembre râpé, du bâton de réglisse, des fleurs de pissenlit et de la noix muscade sont les principaux artisans qui, pierre après pierre, construisent cette finale solaire et fraîche à la fois. La rétro olfaction voit le bâton de réglisse se transformer en réglisse noire. Le verre vide est cacaoté et empyreumatique (bonbon pour la toux, noix grillée).

Nose

The alcohol is there immediately. Hard to get through, behind it you will find the usual sherry influences as you would expect. And they are enormous. But the alcohol is present constantly and covers the details you might want to find.
Water kills the impact of the alcohol and brings out more of the sherry fruityness.

Taste

Not that heavy as you might have thought after nosing. The alcohol is there, but not too disturbing. You get a massive sherry sweetness.
Water brings subtle nutty notes.

Finish

Not too much oak and a rather short finish.
Water actually prolongs the finish a bit and delievers more oak which suits this malt very well.

Comments

I like Glendronach alot and I like sherry cask matured whisky in general but this one is not any good. It is unbalanced and lacks value for money. It is not a really bad whisky but mediocre at best.

My advice would be to skip this one. Get a Parliament 21yo and a bottle from any batch of their Cask Strength series. Those two together are still cheaper and deliever a more rounded experience. And you get more whisky for your money.

If you want massively sherried whiskies at a high cask strength and at any cost (financially and tastewise) though, then this one is for you.
