  1. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Today I'm trying something a bit different. About 4 months ago, I received a bunch of samples of Glendronach single cask bottlings - 7 in all. Casks 1487, 3025, 326, 3397, 1346, 2971, and 494. Let's see how this one tastes.

    Nose begins with milk chocolate, mild aromas of stewed fruits, some sweet spice, orange zest, cigar smoke, leather.

    Palate continues with a mouth coating oiliness, dark chocolate, honey, sweet cinnamon spice, cigar smoke.

    Finish carries on with dark chocolate, some honey, a bit of pepper, oils that linger.

      Long, warm, zesty, little more woody but not drying - swims very well with water

    Well, another success of our friends from Glendro?
    Everything is there, it is complex, the aromas are fine, delicate and at the same time clearly marked, the alcohol is perfectly dosed ...

    Tasted blind.
    • Nose
      Sherry complex. Black fruits (cooked prunes), and red (kirsch freshness) caramelized pineapples, tobacco, rather noble wood. Dry earth, pretty spices (nutmeg), carrots. The fruits are very pretty and the freshness they bring gives relief to this nose. Very slightly suffused, some meaty, salty notes. Leather.
    • Taste
      Much greedy than the nose, sacred contrast! Very thick, on chocolate, coffee with milk, praline. Cinnamon, ripe plums, bitter oranges. Wood juice but here is a good thing ....
    • Finish
      Long, it warms nicely. Chocolate, black mushrooms.
