  3. The_Independent scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    For my taste, a comparatively weak filling of the GlenDronach Single Cask series.
    The whisky is only in a small glass to advantage, otherwise it is quite fast too thin. At the same time, the taste and finish are dominated by strong bitterness notes from the (European) oak, which unfortunately are not integrated into other sherry flavors.
    • Nose
      86 86
      In a small glass develop very beautiful, sweet sherry flavors, butter cake, honey, toffee, caramelized sugar, vanilla.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Short sweet, then quickly bitter-sweet, sweet sherry, pastries, dusty wood, bitter oak notes, spicy aromas, clear espresso. Unfortunately neither creamy nor voluminous.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium long, bitter espresso, still slightly dusty, woody spiciness. Somehow thin, by no means full-bodied.

    Very nice Dronach, good combination of red fruits and chocolate. Very enjoyable.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Nice red fruits, milk chocolate a lot, warm chocolate milk, some earthy notes, moss. Coffee.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A little pickering, coffee, red fruits, some darker chocolate now, honey and oranges. Full and intense, later on some tobacco.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Some pepper, warming, intense. Red fruits, Haribo cherry sweets, pretty long. Now some cigar tobacco in the finish.
