    pleasant to drink
    with nice notes
    the finish is the best
    in nose and mouth one feels clearly sharpness which should not be there
    at always welcomed Dram
    • Nose
      Wood in sherry, or sherry in wood;)
      crushed raisins
      old leather, seasoning, oranges
      slight alcoholic strength
    • Taste
      sharp start
      then sherry, chocolate powder, on the palate a bit bitter
      Oranges and seasoning
      the sharpness does not go away even with water

    This whisky lacks the typical acidity of the distillery. The smell is overwhelming, but the palate shows much less sherry than the nose can expect. The oak is very present and unfortunately the whisky is too alcoholic. Nevertheless, he likes me. The whisky wins with water. He gets milder on the palate. I rarely dilute, but it makes sense here.
    • Nose
      Sherry without end. One can clearly identify the Pedro Ximénez. Sweet raisins, stollen, balsamic cream. The alcohol is noticeable, but not disturbing. In the background is oak. After a while, the sherry steps back a bit. Approaches of honey and caramel show up.
    • Taste
      A strong start is in contrast to a silky soft mouthfeel. The consistency is almost creamy. The alcohol is a bit too spicy. The second sip makes it better. Immediately shows half-bitter chocolate. Behind it lies a strong spice from the oak. After he was less sweet than expected in the first sip, he shows in the second sip gentler and also quite sweet. A reminder of salt makes me think of soy sauce.
    • Finish
      Very clear oak. Spicy and bitter. Burnt. Long and slightly astringent.

    gorgeous malt! It has everything I like about Glendronach and sherried whisky
    in general. It is complex, savory, and sweet but not too extreme to make it a
    situational pleasure. As far as I know, vatted bottlins like these have been
    very rare in recent Glendronach history.
    • Nose
      fudgy and full of dried fruit. Figs and plums primarily. All-in-all, typically
      ‘Dronach so far. Then there are liquid Werther’s original! With a few minutes
      of air, the dram explodes with cinnamon sprinkled oak and roasted almonds.
    • Taste
      arrival and very drinkable at this Vol. Savory and sweet. Vanilla sugar, soy
      sauce, and currant. A little licorice perhaps, as well as hints of white tee.
      It really is a mix of the 15yo Revival and the 18yo Allardice. Honey and mild
      tannins initiate the satisfying finish.
    • Finish
      Spicy… almost briny, and more toffee. Raisins and chocolate, with a pleasant
      touch of cappuccino.

    [March, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 90 Euro in December, 2014.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state a perfect modern sherry profile without any flaws.  Dangerously quaffable...
