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...

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Full on nuts, dried fruit (figs, sultanas), milk chocolate, and - less obvious - the barley. Still a hint of tinned peaches. 

Taste

Full-bodied and sweet, dominated by the figs and sultanas. Rum topf? milk chocolate. The nuts are still present. 

Finish

Keeps returning, the PX dominates (now).

Comments

Quite nutty for a sheer PX... Nevertheless, very good.

Cheers! Paul

Tasting notes by Serge:

Glendronach 20 yo 1994/2014 (54.8%, OB, for Abbey Whisky, cask #3400) Four stars and a half Abbey Whisky had a great 1993 the year before (WF 90). Colour: mahogany. Oloroso! Nose: oloroso! Walnuts, pecan pie, chocolate, raisins on a cake (kugelhopf!), marmalade, then earth, wet stones, pu-erh tea, pipe tobacco and, guess what, no struck matches. With water: perfecto. More pu-erh, cigar box, beerawecka (Alsatian Christmas cake), dried dates… Mouth (neat): rich fruit cake on concentrated orange juice, earl grey tea (a bit overinfused, perhaps), leather, tobacco and marmalade. A little pepper. Classic from Classic’s. With water: some saponification happening, let’s wait… (indeed, I’ll say it again, when you add water, it can happen that some soapy molecules are created, but those go away and quick). Zzz… zzz… We’re back. Indeed, the soap has gone away. The whole got a little leafier. Finish: long, tobacco-ish, raisiny, leafy. Rather dry, leafy and, in that sense, oloroso-ish indeed. Comments: perfect sherried work, as often. They really do it well. Just, careful with water. SGP:461 - 89 points.
