    When you view this through the lens of typical Glendronach, you might be disappointed. As a stand-alone whisky, this is very interesting though. Very tasty and flavorful ex-Bourbon maturation with a twist here and there. Decent length and overall no glaring flaws. This certainly needs lots of time to breathe and it benefits from a drop of water too.
    • Nose
      At first rather conventionally long-aged ex-Bourbon wood, with dusty oak, menthol cough drops, and liquid licorice. All-in-all rather dry and punchy. Lactose-forward on the second sniff – buttermilk and rhubarb-flavored yoghurt. With some more air, one might smell some naphthalene. Quite a lot of citrus in this as well – oranges and sweet limes primarily.
    • Taste
      Gentle arrival for 46%, quite tannic, with sweet honeyed oak, mentholated chocolate, and roasted chestnuts. So overall much sweeter than the nose suggests at first. An amalgamation of dried herbs – rosemary, green tea – and tropical fruit, like papaya and mango.
    • Finish
      Medium. Lots of sweet eucalyptus, green teas, and nutty undertones.
