    My conclusion is that its better without water, but the finish is better with some drops of water.
    • Nose
      w/o water Intense alcohol at first - let the whisky sit in the glas for a while before sniffing it, sherry, fruity, raspberry

      with water: more sherry and much less alcohol then before. citrus and apples
    • Taste
      w/o water: warm smooth body, a little dry, sherry, vanilla, butter/butter popcornwith water taste: sherry and fruits.
    • Finish
      w/o water: vanilla, sherry, some hints of fruits

      with water: poweful vanilla, much more then before - sherry and fruits are not coming on as good as w/o water.

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    More mine than # 4067, pretty dark with power
    • Nose
      Raisin, clear mocha / chocolate note, figs, raspberry jam, cherry
    • Taste
      First again nice mocha, some leather, oak with medium seasoning, jam, berries pickled, strength is palpable, rum raisins
    • Finish
      Bitter orange, warm, full, long, oak remains like Sherry in the throat

    For 85€ (04-2016) you get a very well made Glendronach which is not really obvious to be only 12 years old as it has a lot of fruity influence and seems to be more adult then other similar old ones. 
    • Nose
      For its young age quite adult. If I compare to the 11y LMDW it is much better balanced and seems to be much longer matured even in fact it is just one year. You have cocoa powder so quite dry but also pepper and plums giving it some fruity influence.
    • Taste
      Very nice and full of sherry fruits and dark pepper - oranges, apricots, milk chocolate, cocoa again, raisins 
    • Finish
      The finish is good and semi-long and gives this dram a nice finish.
