Nose

Excellent nose with a lot of sherry but quite dry. The cocoa powder is quite dominant and I have cherry and oranges. The alcohol is tickling the nose. All in all a great nose and start in this dram!

Taste

Milk chocolate, a lot of cherries, oranges, honey, cocoa, grapes

The level of the nose can be kept and the whisky is still showing its great quality!
Finish

Quite dry finish where a lot of cocoa powder remains in the throat. Quite nice!

Comments

A real nice and well done sherry cask whisky from Glendronach which is better than the usual once but not a masterpiece. For me the finish and the malt itself is great but the dry influence is not my favorite...

Nose

Les marqueurs olfactifs classiques du sherry sont bien présents avec toutefois une certaine délicatesse : fruits cuits dont beaucoup d'oranges, fruits secs et oléagineux, épices ( poivre ), léger boisé.

Taste

Belles notes de fruits cuits ( prunes, figues ) dont une remarquable déclinaison d'oranges ( en compote, en confiture, en zestes ). S'intercalent aussi des notes épicées superbement dosées ( poivre, gingembre, cannelle, clou de girofle ) et du cacao noir. De surcroît, une touche herbeuse ( menthe sauvage ) presque réglissée ajoute une dimension complémentaire plus fraîche qui suscite l'enthousiasme.

C'est au final beaucoup plus complexe qu'il n'y paraît de prime abord.
Finish

Longue, sur les oranges épicées et un peu de vieux tabac à pipe ayant séjourné dans un coffre en bois.

Comments

Je suis en général un peu réservé sur les "monstres" de sherry mais celui-ci m'a vraiment conquis.

Merci à Jack pour le sample.

couleur ambre clair, nez moyennement marqué par le sherry pour un Glendro, sur le chocolat, la figue, l'orange, le raisin sec, la prune, beaucoup de tabac, menthol, beaucoup d'épices. Bouche très sèche, texture peu épaisse, puissante, un peu austère mais beaucoup de complexité, comme au nez beaucoup de tabac et d'épices, chocolat, café, fruits secs, mais pas trop de noix. Encore plus fruité avec de l'eau. Très bonne longueur. Un Glendro très complexe mais qui manque un peu de charme à mon goût.

Nose

Sweet raisins, heavily sugared espresso, saw dust, melted milk chocolate, and overripe figs. Even after being subjected to air, it retains its full range of ripe fruits. Now with a little incense and juicy oranges as well perhaps. If you nose it carefully, it exhibits rather brandy or cognac-like qualities. Holding your noggin in a little deeper brings you back into the sherried oakiness of well-aged malt whisky. Quite enjoyable! With a drop of water it turns a little darker. The chocolate becomes less milky, the fruits more rum-infused. Odd, but cool!

Taste

Rather sweet arrival, with a minor sourness imparted in there somewhere. Orange liqueur, sweet oak, chocolate, and plums. Very classic Glendronach IMO. With a drop of water it turns more lively. Sweet raisiney goodness!

Finish

Long and drying. Departs with even more figs, more plums, and sweet tannins.

Comments

Just gorgeous. Hard to compare with other sherry bombs I had in this price range. Compared to the boldness of a Benrinnes 23, this is more eloquent and balanced. Highly recommended!

Producer`s tasting notes:

Colour: Dark crimson crowned by gold.

Nose: Delicate waves of cracked black pepper and distant cardamom pod spice the honey drizzled orchard fruits and toasted barley.

Palate: A classic, fine sherry character. Sultanas, rasisns and sweet plum syrup combine with complementing waves of freshly cut herbs and sweet oak spices.
