the finish is the best

Wood in sherry, or sherry in wood;)
old leather, seasoning, oranges
slight alcoholic strength

Oranges and seasoning
the sharpness does not go away even with water
- A great drop for sherry fans
Sherry, old wardrobe, leather, then raisins, blackcurrants, plums, dark chocolate with cranberries, sweet pipe tobacco, sugar molasses
Dark chocolate, very spicy oak, dark fruits, plum chutney with a certain sharpness
relatively dry, spicy and long, peppery
- 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.
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.
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.
Very clear oak. Spicy and bitter. Burnt. Long and slightly astringent.
- A 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.
Very 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.
Full-bodied 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.
Medium-long. Spicy… almost briny, and more toffee. Raisins and chocolate, with a pleasant touch of cappuccino.
- Judging from the smell, the winery has made great efforts to blend this wine. The rich animal fat aroma is very characteristic. Unfortunately, the entrance is not satisfactory, and the consistent excellent style of retaining a single barrel is not retained.
A rich and very good-smelling Shirley monster with a rush of syrup and cheese layers, roasted until the oily chest is filled with condensed milk, and instant coffee cappuccino with a double coffee mate. Juicy fruits such as grapes and plums are naturally ripe to contain a small amount of alcohol, strong vanilla flavor, mint flavor gum, 40% chocolate, roasted almonds, cinnamon powder and a small amount of pickled fish. M's decayed wood.
Fat (cream) 10, Shirley 8, vanilla 6, fruit 3.
There are plenty of tannins, chocolate wood soup, toffee, black dried fruit, still cream, but some fights with the sourness of tannins. Pepper, fireworks, crushed tobacco leaves, ginger shreds, and flavors are more developed toward the spice based on chocolate.
It is fuller, medium fat, low sweet, a lot of tannins, significant sourness, slightly bitter bottom.
Extremely long, coffee grounds, toffee, black pepper, 100% black chocolate.
- One of the best vintages produced by GlenDronach. Wonderful whisky
Brown sugar, molasses, almost a rum like quality about it. Nutty, almonds and amaretto, creme brulee with the sugar freshly caramelized.
Creamy raisins, thick and sticky with lots of sugary fruits and Christmas cake. A lot of sweetness, chewy raisins and ginger spice. Some jamaican spiced rum cake, some malt loaf as well.
Woody notes slowly creeping in with time.
coffee, cappuccino with a piece of dark chocolate on the side. No old oak notes, all fruit and all juicy cake notes. Finish a little short though....
With time the finish picks up more wood and starts to develop a sour oak note.
- Lots of sherry as per usual with Glendronach bottlings. PX influence is subtle and as such it is not as sweet as expected. Some sponge cake sweet on the palate. Finish is long with dark chocolate and oak spice. A nice and moderately complex dram
