Nose

Sweet, sticky sherry immediately hits the nose. Sultanas, cinnamon, baked apple, rum-soaked raisins, toffee, chocolate, burnt sugar, mint, lemon, orange peel, dried apricot, vanilla. A little bourbony on the nose, although very welcoming. For a cask strength whisky, the nose is very mild in terms of alcohol burn.

Taste

Full, oily mouthfeel with a slight alcohol burn. Oak, PX sherry, espresso, butterscotch, salted caramel, milk chocolate, walnut, nutmeg, earthy, orange, anise, jaffa cake and spearmint. It's a little in your face, but in a pleasant way. I get the idea that the PX casks are the main contributor to this whisky, making this whisky lean more to the sweet side and less 'heavy' on the palate. You can tell the difference if you've had Oloroso matured Glendronachs.

Finish

Very long and drying, dried fruit notes are prominent.

Comments

Compared to their age-stated core range bottlings, this one has a much clearer distillate character.

Nose

Tobacco but also the sweetness of sherry. Glue and leather. Complex but fresh.

Taste

Again the tobacco and leather, with some sherry notes coming through. Like walking into an antique store. Lovely.

Finish

Quite long and warm with spicy pepper notes.

Comments

Very nice dram. Would love to see how this would do if matured longer.

Nose

Clearly thick sherry influences as expected. Chocolate, hazelnuts, raisins and sultanas. Also some oranges and tangerines. overall quite pleasant

Taste

it starts with a small black peper bite, then comes the raisins and oranges, followed by sweet silky milkchocolates with almonds. it has a bit of a small bitter bite on the tongue which damages a bit the overall sweet full soft experience

Finish

quite long, mouthcoating with dark chocolate and laurus.

Comments

nice affordable glendronach.

Bij twee derde van de fles na enkele weken:

In de neus Gekonfijte sinas citrus Coco's pruimen spritzkoekjes espresso amfora tabak .

Smaakt weer romige sherry sinas pruim petertjes in het midden wat laurier en citroenschil , later droogjes pepertjes en een licht zoetje blijft lekker lang hangen.

In de eerste weken wat meer ingetogen iets meer leer en minder zoet ook was de alcohol meer aanwezig en in de afdronk wat floraal en lichte tonen van mint . In de weken later kon ik deze niet meer zo proeven , maar wel meer accenten van rijpe vruchten en invloed van de px sherry, in het begin neeg het meer naar olorosso.

Nose

Бархатный, обволакивающий, мягкие, нагретые солнцем сухофрукты - изюм, чернослив, курага; перезревшие персики, снова мощная волна горячей кураги, далеко на заднем плане - обработанное дерево, морилка, лак - очень лёгкие и воздушные полутона; изюмная волна - аромат течёт и переливается, играет с вами поворачиваясь то одной, то другой стороной.

Taste

Резкий, сладко-древесный, перечная волна, курага, сливки, после буйства красок в аромате возникает чувство опустошения и разочарования - не удалось, да.

Finish
Сладко-перечное, лёгкие сухофрукты на заднем плане - курага, чернослив; сливочные нотки - ириски, помадка, достаточно длительное.


Comments
 Близкий к идеальному аромат, после такого сразу закрадывается мысль, что дальше будет провал, если бы его не было этот молт продавался бы по совсем другой цене и, таки да," ... на словах он Лев Толстой, а на деле х.. простой..." ; развитие серии идёт по нисходящей, первый батч остался непревзойдённым, ну да ладно - можно хотя бы насладиться ароматом.
