- A nice malt, but the price was clearly too high!
[Color] dark bronze;
sweet, pickled cherries, nut, oak;
oily body, spicy voluminous onset, cherries, honey, spice (ginger, oak), complex;
medium length, fruity finish; peppery finish
Sweet but also a little spicy. It gives you a good idea of what you are about to taste.
a sweet taste of honey with a little spiciness from the pepper
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.

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

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.
