      Deep. Christmas cake. Leather. Old cellar. And of course the dried fruits. Menthol. And the nutty trademark note from this distillery. Dark berries and marzipan.
    • Taste

      Glue-y. Dried fruits again. Cinnamon. Menthol. Blackcurrants. Dried fruits.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long and a bit dry. Some Oaky tannins. Dark berries. Menthol and the nuttiness of course.

    Clean, beautiful Glendronach. Classical oloroso influence with no off notes and a nice complexity.
    • Nose
      Classical clean oloroso with leather and old furniture, chocolate, toffee fudge, slight fruitiness with raisins, cherries and oranges.
    • Taste
      Sweet. Prunes in chocolate, toffee, ginger bread, truffles. Christmas cake. Not very fruity but savoury and elegant.
    • Finish
      Quite long on sweet chocolate, raisins and oranges again.

    TASTING NOTE LMDW Color: mahogany. Nose: white pepper and cinnamon, dates and smyrna grapes. Spices from the oak are in contrast with the fruitiness and bring complexity and depth. Palate: intense and rich, marked by notes of molasses, plums and prune syrup. A herbaceous and aromatic side, brings more complexity and give a lively character to the classic notes of sherry.

  4. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Fudge, syrup, orange, chocolate and fresh lime.
    • Taste
      Full with forest fruits - cassis, tobacco leafs, spices - pepper and cloves. A bit young in the taste. 
    • Finish
      Bitter, orange, meaty and spices - pepper and cloves. 

  5. tomy63 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    light amber, spicy nose, less marked sherry than other Glendro SC, almonds, chocolate, coffee, honey, vanilla. Subtle mouth, quite fine and complex, waxed furniture, coffee, various spices, honey, not too dry. It just lacks a bit of thickness. Pretty good length, final on coffee and spices.

  6. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Nose dates, waxed furniture (encaustic), honey, praline, mocha and morello cherry. The attack is very sweet then the power unfolds with an aromatic noble varnish, turpentine, dark chocolate, very greedy! Long final that starts to shoot the coffee, slightly praline. Very very good, a nice explosion of flavors, a busy malt.

  7. Ivynor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Excellent.  89 + / 90 -
    • Nose
      Très sherry, meubles cirés, vernis, moka concentré, grains de café chocolaté avec sa crème glacée au café, chocolat noir, vanille et des notes de noix
    • Taste
      Bonne concentration, petit dessert bien qu'un peu sec, compensé par la finesse des arômes : moka , crème caramel, prune cuite, noix, praliné, miel de chataîgne
    • Finish
      Longue, sur la prune, le café, et la noix.

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    When I tasted this one after the '96 for Kierzek on PX, I really realised how gentle and juicy this one is compared to a lot of other sherried GlenDronachs. 

    Also put it next to cask 2380 for Whiskynerds, and although these are much more similar, also in that comparison this one seemed a bit more sophisticated.

    Compared to the previous 1995 GlenDronach for LMdW (cask 1774), this one is more fudgy and juicy and less nutty.
    • Nose
      Toffee, cherry, spice, raisin, prune, marshmallow and a little tobacco. With water a little lighter with peach, raspberry and rhubarb.
    • Taste
      Cherry, toffee, raisin, milk chocolate, praliné, marshmallow and pepper. When adding water, some creamy peach, plum and raspberry.
    • Finish
      Toffee, cherry, peach, milk chocolate and raisin.

  9. Jean-Brice scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful sherry that lacks a bit of finesse to exceed 90.
    • Nose
      Sherry monster! Initially, it's nagging. At aeration, finesse develops. Figs, plums, red fruits ... Cocoa and coffee. Expressive.
    • Taste
      Powerful, oily, the wood is not noticeable.
    • Finish
      Long
