Glendronach 8 years, 43% alc.
Bottler: Lars Wiebers (Whisky manufactory)
Expansion: Bourbon + Sherrycasks
Region: Speyside, Scotland
Special feature: Lars Wiebers got several barrels 8-year-old Glendronach and now fills his own ... batch. These bottlings are available under the label "Whiskymanufaktur" in various whisky shops in Berlin and soon also online.
Nose: Orange aromas in their most beautiful form, with peaches and apricots. Green apples are also part of the party. Behind, the fruits are a bit more mature, a hint of raspberry in vanilla cream appears. After a while, half caramelized sugar and raisins are added.
Palate: Fruity with apricot and clear sherry influence, the single painting is creamy and mouth-filling, it tingles slightly on the palate. In addition, citrus fruits come in malt, and he has already got some wood for 8 years (spices, tannins).
Finish: Long and balanced, fruity and pleasant. The oak only tickles and is not too heavy yet.
Conclusion: Wow, I like better than the original bottling. Suitable for all connoisseurs.
