    I´m sure that this dram has developped a lot in the open bottle and that it´s much better now than it was when opened. really a great dram
    89/100
    • Nose
      I know that when I opened this bottle I thought there was a bit of a bourbonny aroma. cannot get this today and that´s pretty alright with me.
      the sherry influence is just as strong as this young fellow can take it and still be able to preserve the distillery character. oranges, malt, a few nuts and already a little oak.  rather straightforward
    • Taste
      very good...you can easily sip it neat. it´s full of flavour with a perfectly balanced mixture of nuts, toffee, mars bars, baisser and baklava.
    • Finish
      ultra long on nuts, toffee and cocolate

    Not bad, lite chocolate on the nose and palate, a little dark fruit not much else. Reminds me of a lite version of Aberlour A'bunadh batch #49. Which for only $20 more I would rather have.

    Update: Two months after first opening the bottle, this has gotten a lot better. Bumped up the score from a 86 to an 87.

    It is Christmas yet? Not that I would ask Santa to bring me a bottle, but this is the type of dram that would go down very well on Christmas Eve. Heartwarming. And in my opinion the best of the series so far. You can find it for around 65 EUR. If anyone has batch 5 open, I would welcome a sample.
    • Nose
      The nose is textbook GlenDronach. Nothing but fruit, fruit and more fruit. Albeit in a wonderful little stew in this case. And drenched in a good dollop of honey. So sweet… In alphabetical order: apricots, mandarin, peach, prunes, raisins and sultanas. And a lovely mix of nuts. Not a sherry bomb, but a lovely fruity whisky all the same. Very aromatic and juicy.
    • Taste
      Nice arrival, good strength without scorching and spicy on white pepper and loads of ginger. Some cinnamon and maybe even a single clove. The prunes come first, followed by honey. I also get some caramelized orange peel. Boy, oh boy, this is so good.
    • Finish
      It does turn a tad piquant in the finish, though. And – can you guess it? – leaves your mouth completely dry.
