Nose

Oh this is unfiltered and undiluted Glendronach sherrybombness. Typical PX notes of heavy sweetness paired with tannic chocolate sauce, cinnamon and cocktail cherries. This release was actually not universally well-received – but it can’t be because of this nose. I suspect the 150€ price tag in middle 2015 had more to do with it. Herbal candy, waxy parchment, and polished leather add my general association of PX casks and salted caramel – with a dash of lime cordial!

Taste

Dry and juicy. Coats your tongue with oily goodness. All kinds of black forest fruit – blue berries and cake drenched in plum sauced – with brandy spilled all over it! Oh-so nice! No cask strength in sight to be honest.

Finish

Medium-long. Dark berries, dried fruit, some caramelized toffee, and sugared cappuccino.

Comments

IMO a straightforward, well-matured GD single cask. The initial asking price was high, but in relation to the current batch releases, this is becoming better value by the month. Good tertiary profile as well, without too much of a sherry coating.

Nose

Nice balance between roasted and smoky aromas, dark fruits and malty goodness. This is remarkably similar to the 18yo Allardice but much more intense. The nose leans more towards Oloroso than Pedro Ximenez. Plums, raisins, orange zest, strawberry, pear, pineapple, dry sherry, dark chocolate, toffee, fudge, oak, vanilla, coffee, roasted hazelnuts, smoke, malt, old books, balsamic vinegar, ham, anise, chili pepper, a little sulphur and wet forest soil. Delicious and surprisingly harmonious.

Taste

Creamy texture, and very easy to drink. I've had some 43%'ers that were a lot hotter. More of the nose and that's a good thing. Sweet bbq and soy sauce, sour milk, sticky sherry, walnuts, roasted coffeebeans, ginger, vanilla, dried apricot, plums, figs, apple cider, jaffa cakes, salty caramel, treacle, espresso, musty basement and some smoke. Superb.

Finish

Long! Medium sweet, lovely dried fruits and quite malty. The savory notes have disappeared, wish I could have some of that in the finish. You can't have it all though.

Comments

There's a lot going on and although quite heavy on the savory notes, it keeps a very nice harmony. The sweeter notes are a little driven to the back due to this. I had a hard time believing this was matured in a Pedro Ximenez cask, as those are generally overly sweet. Good '95 although they aren't as loved.

Un nez des plus chaleureux, avec des vagues infinies de chocolat noir, de café. Comme être un liliputien au pied d'une fontaine à chocolat. Des amandes caramélisées, des noix de cajou. Ce nez est hypnotique. Peut-être le meilleur nez que j'ai jamais eu dans un whisky. En bouche, on retrouve tous ces arômes délicieux avec une très belle intégration de l'alcool. Je n'aurais pas eu assez de ces 2 cl pour me contenter. Celui-ci va rester un long moment dans ma mémoire.

Enthousiasme 5/5

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose
Figues, prunes. Cuir et bois.
En gros le gros sherry classique.
Légère touche beurrée et saline. 
Assez fort en alcohol.
Taste
Huileux en bouche.
Sur les fruits noirs (cassis, mûre, figue) principalement. Fruits secs (raisins)
Le tout enroulé dans de l'écorce de bois et saupoudré de cannelle, de poudre de cacao et de café.
On pourrait presque croire à un rhum en bouche.
Toujours du cuir et un peu d'amertume. Une légère pointe de souffre.
Finish

Finale longue sur le sherry et les fruits noirs au sucre chaud (caramel). 

Comments
L'eau ne lui fait pas spécialement du bien. 
Un très bon Glendro qui manque un peu d'originalité et de complexité.

Heerlijke whisky, belooft in de geur al veel moois en stelt in de smaak en afdronk vervolgens absoluut niet teleur.
Elke nip verwarmt en prikkelt de zintuigen, prima dram om een herfstavond mee door te komen.
