Burnt umber
Nose

"Glendronach PX 101", really archetypal. It directly gives all it has, which is a pleasure. Mountains of raisins, leather, blackcurrant and blueberries, with a distant background of smoked wood (charcoal-y, as often with Glendro in my exeprience). Black chocolate, then more sweet salty things with oinion jam and venison sauces. Slighlty vinous but not too much, ans certainly not too sweet : just whiffs of brown sugar (it's PX after all), and french toast. 

Taste

Beautiful incisive arrival, all about fruits this time (for the better !) : acidic cherries (the ones we make Kriek beer from), fresh strawberries, kir, various jammy red and black fruits then settles on more classic PX. Gingerbread, brown sugar, sweet rhum, brown butter. Not an inch of over-woodiness nor over-sweetness. Some cuberdon at second sip, the arrival really is very candied and fruity. 

Finish

Same vein, and not too woody / tannic. Brown butter, varnished furniture, leather, raisins and just, you know, sherry, sherry, sherry. Some slight tobacco (ever noticed how a new pack of tobacco can smell like fresh blackberries ? I get the same feeling here) and hazelnuts. Some earthy (even floral ?) pot-pourri for a second.

Comments

Unsurprisingly flawless. Lacks some suprise element or some added class to go above 90, but all the rest is sufficient for a 90 : the contained woodiness and sweetness, the spontaneity, and the bright fruits on the palate all are a bliss. Glendro and Abbey Whisky do know what proper sherry maturation is.

Great sherry nose with a lot of PX sweetness and also a very balanced nose

If the finish would have been not as dry and also not having this decent bitterness we would have an outstanding dram here. With the finish it is "just" a great one ;-)

Confiture de fraises et et mûres (surtout de mûres), pruneaux, caramel, vin cuit. Tout ce qui fait un gros sherry un bon sherry. Avec de l'eau, du toffee. En bouche, suspense…SHERRY. Et épices. Et notes boisées avec de l'eau. Le sherry ne s'épanche pas trop dans la finale qui dévoile étonnamment des fruits cuits telle de la pêche rôtie.

Enthousiasme 4/5

Bon c'est clairement Sherry, on ne s'y trompe pas. Il est très gourmand sur les fruits secs ( classique ), la vanille, le caramel, le miel ... un vrai gâteau maison !

Taste

Alcool bien intégré,puissant mais pas trop où se mélangent épices et caramel. Toujours aussi gourmand qu'au nez mais un peu sec.

Finish

Un joli Finish assez long qui conclu une belle dégustation... 

Comments

Un Glendronach Sherry comme je les aime... certes classique mais toujours aussi bon.

Heavily sherried malt, with all the characteristics that you would look for in such a malt. Sherry cask matured at it's best, in my opionion higher quality and density than you would find in a Macallan...
