Expert Junior Vince' Review note
19 Jun 2017 7:12 pm
Vince' gave this whisky 86 points

Nase: Schöne aber dezente Oloroso Sherry Nase. Sehr nussig, etwas Sauerkirsch und Zartbitterschokolade ist auch zu finden. Alkohol ist nach adequater Standzeit nicht zu verspüren. Nach längerer Zeit kommt zwischen der angenehmen Süße auch etwas herb-fruchtiges bzw. Muffiges zum Vorschein, was ihn in der Nase schonmal sehr interessant macht und deutlich älter wirken lässt. Ich assoziiere etwas geröstete Walnüsse. Man merkt in jedem Fall das es ein Glendronach ist, aber anders als der 12er Standard. Die Nase ist für mich vor dem normalen 12er, ich tippe, dass der GlenDronach nicht in einem First-Fill oder zumindest keinem sehr aktiven Fass gereift ist. Aber genau das finde ich gerade so interessant.


Geschmack: Weich, kein Alkohol zu spüren. Geschmack ist aber auch weniger Intensiv als die Nase. Kaum süß, eher die volle Ladung geröstete Nüsse auch kaum Frucht aber ins Zartbittere gehend. Was mir aber gut gefällt: Schön würzig mit Anklängen an alten Sherry. Keine Sherrybombe, sehr dezent...aber irgendwie gefällt er mir...könnte trotz 48% noch ein ticken mehr bums vertragen. Dennoch finde ich ihn besser als seine Bewertungen vermuten lassen


Fazit: Kein total komplexer Tropfen und die Nase ist durchaus besser als der Geschmack. Aber das was er hat, überzeugt mich dennoch.

Nose:
Sweet and a little hidden sherry notes. This is not a sherry bomb on the nose. But there is clearly a hint of raisins and chocolate underneath this delicacy.

Taste:
Sweet, chocolate, mars candy bar, then there is red fruit, even grape. After that it turns a bit sour-dry.

Body:
Medium, a little oily.

Finish:
Medium length. Quite tannic en woody. A bit sour and ry. Clearly sherry influenced, but a bit off.

Price:
Don't know, this was a given sample.

Nose

Very juicy, sweet sherried nose full of dades and raisins, a hint of overripe cherries and orange marmalade. Very waxy too. It has a hint of varnish. Tobacco leaves. Quite alright! If you leave it to breath for long it also gets a green edge as if from squashed ferns. No joke.

Taste

It is honeysweet and very spicy on the palate, but unfortunately the body is somewhat light. Especially if you put it right behind the Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker. Next to the dades and raisins I now also get some blueberries and a hint of bitter oranges. Becomes more spicy with the second sip. The third… well now, let’s just say that it flirts a little with sulphur. Luckily within the acceptable. 

Finish

On the medium long finish, it is all about the oak. It suppresses the fruit somewhat and gives the floor to the spices. It leaves your mouth dry.

Comments

I do not like to admit it, but I prefer the (much cheaper) GlenDronach 12 Original. Thanks, Sven!
