    N: miracle! Where's the alcohol? Perhaps it has fallen out of respect for the complexity of this nose ... It has a resounding aromatic richness, which almost engulfs, takes you by the throat ... The first impact is a beautiful chocolate, dark (indeed: the dark cremino); then, a carpet, a great mix of red fruits, here in a fresh and juicy version, but also: cherries in spirit! Another image that comes to mind is: berries with the Port. Black plums, fresh and juicy; also fresh, ripe, beautiful figs. Then we go into a more scathing side: a nice note of 'caramel burnt', of creme brulee. Then, the notes of anise, rhubarb, tea, damp wood, a few bits of nutmeg and beeswax: dirty notes that blend perfectly with the rest. Top. Cigar? P: here too, the inconsistency of alcohol impresses, leaving the field to a body of compactness and intensity. Sensational. The two souls described to the nose (fresh fruity juicy vs scratchy spicy tannic) continue here in unison: and therefore, chocolate and eucalyptus, pink fruit (still hyper-juicy) and rhubarb, orange and tamarind. Here the side of the tannins becomes more herbaceous, vegetal, but without breaking into the dimension of the 'strained'. Accompany towards the end still that spicy and spicy cigar note. It would not be necessary, but if you want to make a gift and shout of real joy, add water: the side tannins / herbs just get aside and let the sweetness explode, really roaring (strawberry jam? Pie with berries?) . F: very long, opened by the cigar (almost smoke); resists, still dramtically, a fresh, juicy fruit; bitter chocolate and a biscuit note, of malt, a surprise. We Italian bloggers of whisky will be scoundrels but certainly we know how to recognize a good malt; or at least, in this case we did - and it must be said that all four champions had seemed to us of high quality, so it's not just that it was a difficult task. But here, a GlenDronach of this age, to really seduce us, must be like this: it has indeed an excellent balance between the herbaceous side and the sweet, juicy side; and let's say that we give it a little punticino more because with water it evolves in a really deflagrating way. http://whiskyfacile.com/2014/12/15/glendronach-21-yo-19932014-ob-for-beija-flor-silver-seal-581/
