    Punchy, powerful, quite rubberish on the nose but pretty balanced on the palate - pretty good
    • Nose
      88 88
      Lots of sherry, fresh rubber, toffee, dark chocolate, nutty, hints of dried fruits, coffee, dark acacia honey - not bad
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very punchy, oily, liquorice, dark berries, coffee, cooked fruits, jam, a bit citrusy, blood oranges, subtle sweetness, sherry wood, more dark chocolate - very good
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long, burning, citrusy, zesty, woody, surprisingly not too drying

    Tasting Notes: Nose: Very sweet, milk chocolate and caramel, raisins, grapes and the aroma of freshly sawn wood. Immediately enormous Mundwässernd, with almost a little oldstylischem touch. The sweetness pervades the malt from beginning to end, even if harsh orange and grapefruit notes are added soon and prevent the aromas from being overly plump and sugary. Everything is wonderfully fragrant, very clean, with no mistings, honey, marzipan and apricots with time.
    Mouth: Strong, the alcohol clearly present, very fruity, citrusy and even slightly salty (licorice). Not as chocolaty as in the fragrance, rather juicy, fresh, gradually with fine bitterness that threatens to replace the fruit, but then caught by oranges, ripe apples, dried fruit and marzipan and pushed into the background. Great mouthfeel, with nice sweetness, really spectacular, if not really elegant.
    Finish: Very long, with marzipan, oranges and fine herbs.
    Conclusion: Great, strong Glendronach, for PX fans an absolute must! Fans of fine elegance have to look elsewhere! https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/

    Nice, pleasant PX nose and palate. No sulfur notes.

    Unfortunatly just a bit to bitter on the palate for my taste.

    But still a very nice dram.
