  3. wouterk scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    I had to write something down. This is a very good dram and another great expression from Glendronach. Sherrylovers paradise. Heaven. I love the length of the finish.
    • Nose
      Oh yes. I love this. Chocolate, fudge, roasted nuts. I smell herbs/ spices. Hint of mint. GOOD.
    • Taste
      Crème brûlée. Chocolate. Fresh overripe red fruit. Half dried red grapes (raisins). Subtle beer. Malt. Itty-bitty bitter. Orange zest. The leather from a horseback saddle. Coffee. Oily texture.
    • Finish
      Long. It stays there. Fading slowly. Creamy texture. Milk chocolate leaves behind. Hand-in-hand with, and now, dried red fruit. I like the very shy bitterness. I almost forget this is just below 55%.

  9. p4blo scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    An excellent Glendronach.
    • Nose
      Milk chocolate, orange zest, apricots. Nicely masked alcohol despite the percentage.
    • Taste
      Thick, creamy, sweet and fruity. Oranges, dates, sultanas, but also chocolate and caramel sweetness.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet with the fruity notes playing a major role. Gets a bit spicy towards the end.

  10. smaeksle did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nice single PX paints. Maybe I'll need another bottle of it.
    • Nose
      Milk chocolate, some mint, dark fruits,
    • Taste
      Very soft at first, incredibly sweet, then dark fruits and even you chocolate darkens, then a light tickling on the tongue. The longer you leave it on the tongue, the darker the chocolate becomes, as a slightly bitter taste tries to force itself on the tongue.
    • Finish
      Nice long, first a bit bitter and then very long sweet and mild fading.
