  8. Glenfarclas1887 did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Serge says:

    I know, Glendronach again... Colour: dark amber. Nose: it's menthol that comes out first, together with some liquorice and quite a few tinier terpenic aromas. Pinesap, cough medicine... All that gives this oldie a huge feeling of freshness before the old-cognac side starts to unfold in a wonderful manner. That means plenty of raisins, then ripe peaches, honey and cherries in kirsch. Amazing freshness, no fatty chocolaty tones, so all is pretty perfect so far. With water: swims like Shirley Babashoff. Who remembers Shirley Babashoff? Stunning herbal profile, always amazingly fresh. And I love these tangerines, its all getting even more christmassy. Even some quality limoncello. Mouth (neat): the cherries are back, together with some strong chestnut honey and, this time, more chocolate and kumquats. Earl grey tea, a little mocha coffee, drops of bitter herbal tea (peach leaves, maybe) and a little curry. Excellent. With water: really rather sweeter than other old oloroso monsters, and with many more oranges, tangerines and kumquats. Plus these touches of menthol that keep lifting the whole into the most ethereal heights (yeah yeah, right...) Finish: long, on some kind of high-end mint flavoured tea mixed with grapefruit juice. Comments: I don't find all old sherry monsters very elegant and refined. This one is. Utterly lovable, like many 1972s. Merry Christmas!SGP:561 - 93 points.

  9. XorLophaX scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion: 94/100 points - "almost perfect Sherrybomb". This 1972 Glendronach offers a stunning nose. Fruitiness and complexity at the highest level. Unfortunately on the palate too alcoholic. Otherwise 97/100. For the price you can expect more, but still one of the best whiskys I could taste to date. Link to the tasting on my blog: http://www.tasting-notes.de/Archive/163
    • Nose
      Wow, what an intense and complex nose. At the beginning, nutty sherry flavors dominate. When the alcohol is somewhat pursuing, the palette of flavors fans over chocolates, mocha, spices to dark fruits. Here stands out some sour cherry and currant. With water a little sweeter and chocolatier, less fruit. Stunning nose!
    • Taste
      Here you immediately feel an alcoholic sharpness, which hides differentiated aromas. Overall, pretty sweet and chocolaty. With water much rounder, more fruity. Not all the aromas of the nose come back, but still very tasty. Forest fruits, some wood and mocha. A hint of nutmeg is subtly in the background.
    • Finish
      A long, somewhat austere finish. Aromas of caramel, malt and cocoa. Towards the end again sour cherries. Nice.

  10. Noface83 scored this whisky 92 points Specialist

    He definitely needs water. A wonderful malt to sniff and with water also very supple in the mouth. The finish loses but with water a bit of bite. I can fully sign the impression and the notes of Mr.Sandwich. Too bad for the age and the price you expect a bit more balance in the whisky. Nevertheless, a beautiful complex malt.
