      Sweet but also a little spicy. It gives you a good idea of what you are about to taste.

      the spiciness from the pepper makes it a great experience, because you have the contrast from both worlds- Sweet and spicy at the same time.

    Very different from the standard Glendronach fair. However, I did find it a little bitter on the end. It’s also very pricey for what it is.

    Tasted at a Malt Mongers Israel Evening

    • Nose
      Butterscotch. Ozone. Yellow cherry. Hay. Toffee. So much toffee. Flowers. Coconut. Light spices.
    • Taste
      Orange. Leather. Bitter wood. Woodspice. Those cheap pink chewy sweets.
    • Finish
      Long. Spicy. Fruity. Bitter.

    Glendronach Marsala 18yo. 46% Vol. European Oak Casks + Marsala Hogshead Finish Bottled 10.11.2014
    Color: bright amber Nose: Wow nice round sweet. Fresh firm plum, great citrus notes, herbs and grass. Has something of summer meadow and the associated honey. Hiding a little ginger. Red fruits like raspberries. Very complex, great! Palate: on the tongue again a great berry sweet. Then the tannins take over the command. It tastes like more. Cotton candy. Resonance: Grassy notes resonate with berries and a light summer honey for a while in the mouth. Beautiful medium-long finish Conclusion: really a great dram. Wonderfully multifaceted without being intrusive. Unfortunately for a long time out of print and only through auctions or private sales.
