    Rum pot sweetened on the nose, dark overripe cherries, ripe strawberries, syrupy orange. Then in the mouth an Oloroso taste without being able to break down the flavors, but not licking. On the palate, a swing of dark cherry aromas interspersed with wood spice and clear dark chocolate, which continues in the finish and slowly fades away.

    Glendronach 20 yo 1993/2013 (54.7%, OB, oloroso sherry butt, cask #16, 669 bottles)  Colour: deep amber. Nose: rather a clean and zesty one, all on blood oranges, Demerara sugar, putty and a little olive oil. Some aspects make me think of Guyana rum - it does actually hint at some great aged rum. Very nice and very interesting. And clean. Mouth: not quite rum anymore - although I do find a wee molassy side - rather a big, nervous, orangey sherry with plenty of herbs and green spices. It's not a fat one. Also nice touches of cherries and bitters as well as a little lemonade. So, yeah, rather a 'nervous' sherry. Finish: long and even more citrusy and herbal. Lemon balm. Comments: a very pleasant variation on sherry, with grasses and herbs. SGP:661 - 88 points.

    A beautifully balanced and complex SC by Glendronach. They really can. He needs a little time anyway, otherwise the alcohol is too present for me ...
    As with all GD SC an insanely long finish with beautiful sherry and dried fruit.

    • Nose
      Moist oak, sherry, dark fruits, slightly alcoholic. Mulled wine, carnation. Brown sugar, a little vanilla.
    • Taste
      Dark berries. Peppery and nutty with a slight bitterness.

    Quite an attack on the palate. A lot of sherry and a lot of alcohol. Rather overwhelming and lacking subtleties. I added a few drops of water to rectify the situation, but sweetness and alcohol prevail.
