  1. Ain scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    An empty glass smells like a cigar. There is a grassy aroma. Very interesting aroma. Very interesting and tasty. Powerful and balanced. The aroma smoothly passes into the taste, and the taste into the aftertaste.
    • Nose
      Wildflowers, dried fruit cocktail, honey, linden. Complex and complex.
    • Taste
      Peanuts, light pepper, bright minerality, malt, pastry notes.
    • Finish
      The logical continuation of the taste. With the attenuation of minerality - sweetness, pepper, fresh grapes.

      Sweet but also a little spicy. It gives you a good idea of what you are about to taste.
    • Taste
      89 89
      a sweet taste of honey with a little spiciness from the pepper
    • Finish
      90 90
      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

    Reviewed in my blog: https://iwriteaboutstuffilike.com/2016/09/16/malt-mongers-israel-glendronach-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.
