- Glendronach? Blindly I leaned for Kavalan a moment so we were more on punchy fruit than on the big roundness of sherry. The most Asian of Glendronach then! ;-)
Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1658
A little solvent initially, then notes of sherry or red wine. Freshness Somewhat woody. Coffee and chocolate. Some aromatic herbs.
Generous fruit, vaguely exotic at times, very juicy in the mouth.
- A very nice Sherry ... Glendronach is really an expert in this area, no complaints. (Anniv evening of 03/03/18)
Big Sherry with all that characterizes it as sulfur and red berries. A real Winey side.
Very nice balance. Light attack but very dry. A glendro very Sherry but keeps a beautiful finesse. Sulfur and red fruits present.
Nice length on Sherry, coffee and spices. There is also vanilla and this little vinous Sherryiesque :)
- Just perfect.
Dark notes of nutty oloroso sherry descend from the glass into the nose. Roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, meaty malt, oxidising grape, but also red fruit and orange.
It's thick and chewy, but pleasantly drying on lots of spices such as pepper, clove, and cardamom. Next to that, there is this typical meaty, nutty and dark oloroso, along with red fruit, dark chocolate, coffee, and marzipan.
Long and lingering, with warming cinnamon and cardamom, clove, coffee roast, marzipan and hazelnut, and stewed plum and orange marmalade.
- Another very good single cask bottling by Glendronach.
Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
Sherry, dark fruits, a bunch of plums, plum marmalade, nuts, juicy overripe oranges, raisins, old leather, hits of tobacco.
Sherry, spicy, fruits, leather, cherry, oak, chocolate, oranges.
Long. Dark fruits, dark chocolate, tobacco.
- Brutal good maturing, very complex, multi layered oloroso.
My best from Glendronach (up to now).
Matured oloroso, fruits: apple, orange, plum and date, raisin, marzipan, cinnamon, leather, tobacco, herbals, mint,
coffee, chocolate, wood, sawdust and motor oil
Rich, creamy, sweet, spicy, fruity: cherry, date and fig,
spices: pepper, ginger and clove, sweet oloroso and bitter orange peel, coffee, marzipan, nut and almond
Long, bittersweet, spicy: burned sugar, tobacco and dried fruits
- A full-bodied traditional sherried character. Multilayered, perfectly
balanced with depth and complexity. Tremendously creamy, spicy, sweet
with lots of dried dark fruits and chocolate aroma, followed by a long
and nutty aftertaste. GlenDronach spirit and Oloroso sherry - a
fantastic example of a perfect symbiosis! This is whisky making in total
perfection! If I had to choose only one bottle of GlenDronach from the
fabulous year 1993, it would be cask #33 - NO DOUBT!
Big and rich sherried nose with deep aromas of prunes, dates, raisins
and sticky treacle. Delicate flavours of marzipan, luscious oranges and
cinnamon emerge, accompanied by a whiff of leather (horse saddle),
tobacco leaves, tender herbal notes, earl grey tea and a whiff of pencil
shavings in the back. An absolutely gorgeous nose!
Oh boy - this is rich, intense, sweet and creamy! Raisins, dates and
figs nicely mingle with lots of Demerara sugar on the palate. This is
immediately followed by a warming and lovely spiciness of pepper, cloves
and some ginger. Fine notes of marzipan arrive, lingering with subtle
bitter orange peel, dark chocolate, espresso and tender almonds and
walnuts towards the finish. Very accessible and perfectly balanced.
A very long, sweet and spiced finish with Demerara sugar, marzipan and
delicate cinnamon. Slightly bitter notes of oranges, expresso beans,
almonds and walnuts deliciously mingle towards the end. Stunning!
WITH WATER: A few drops of water slightly enhance the fruity and creamy
character of this beauty on the nose. Subtle notes of flint stone and a
few more herbs are added to this gorgeous nose. Sweet, creamy and less
spicy on the palate with herbal tea, blackcurrant, marzipan, raisins and
delicate walnuts. The finish is long, creamy, sticky sweet with
oranges, cacao and lovely walnut flavours.
