At first, surprisingly, it is in a very earthy, dirty flavor direction. Nevertheless, the sherry sweets with toasted aromas (roasted hazelnuts) and chocolate as a counterpart is very present. The sweetness remains at all times and reminiscent of pickled Rumrosinen and ripe sweet / sweet cherries (Association: Black Forest Cherry 'cake). At any time, but also with a good portion of seasoning such as lovage, walnuts and old sherrydurchzogenes wood. The spicy-chocolaty
Flavor notes become more prominent in the course of the tasting and form with the sweet and fruity notes a great and complex balance.
Less sweet than the nose suggests, in a good sense! Fruity, almost a fruity-dry, wine-like fruit component paired with lovage with great spicy wood flavors. Roasted aromas of nuts,
light retro malt flavor, light malt? Light smoke? In any case, I associate the typical leather couch. This slightly dirty, earthy-old sherry aroma does not diminish on re-tasting. Nutmeg and herbal woody flavors also throng into the overall flavor.
Fade of dry-fruity / spicy aromas, dark chocolate with no real coffee notes. The finish is medium to long scale. Overall, however, the "weakest" part of GlenDronach.
