Color

Nose

The usual Sherry rocket of sweet fruits: plums, oranges also some sour (lemon) notes. Afterwards a lot of milk chocolate and cocoa powder. 

Taste

The taste is not as sweet as expected as you have fermented grapes but then also honey, plums again, white pepper 

Finish

Nice finish with some honey and fruits. Very nice!

Comments

So where to put... It is a nice and very well done Glendronach Single Cask. Nevertheless you expect for 180€ (03/2016) something special compared to other Single Casks which are 30-40€ cheaper but unfortunately you won't get. A very well done dram which is quite special due to its sour notes and makes a lot of fun to drink.

Au nez,

boisé intense ,sherry lourd qui explose en narines,et des épices. Du chocolat noir à l'orange vient ensuite,très appétissant!

En bouche,épices variées,mélangées,douces,des fruits à coque,le malt qui a vieilli,sucré ,herbacé,caramélisé,le Xérès embaume largement le palais,ainsi que l'alcool,il faut bien faire travailler la salive pour éviter un peu de feu! Retour de bois assez ancien,de cuir ,de chocolat noir.

En finale,longue sur le bois ,le vin madérisé,sur l'huile ,sur le cuir ,sur les fruits genre raisin sec trempé dans un vieux armagnac tellement le sucre parvient  au fond du verre.

Un très bon dram ,à prendre en digestif,à laisser s'aérer !

Nose

Typical sherry cask matured Glendronach, a great combo of yellow and red fruits, leather and tobacco. Rich, thick and inviting.

Taste

Rick, oily, with molasses, coffee, dark fruits, notes of rum, praline and some spices.

Finish

Quite long on fresh red fruits, dark chocolate and coffee.

Comments

An excellent teenager from Glendronach, the profile is very 'regular', but still so entertaining.

Color

Nose

Slightly vinegary, very spicy and a little oil. Almost like a good dark salad dressing. Then some dark tobacco, chocolate cake dough, and  a little floral. Pistachio and Almonds/marzipan. Some dried plums. Slightly beefy.

Taste

Strong but soft spices. First some cumin. Almonds. Quite dry. Honey, hazel nuts, cake dough and again some pistachio= Baklava. Very interesting. Then some overly spiced plum marmalade and a little bit of pepper.

Finish

Very long and certainly dry. Spices, spices everywhere.

Comments

sample.

A moderate sherry monster. Extra points for the oriental notes.

Lang, die fernen Gewürze bleiben mit Beerensträuchern & Sherry-Eiche zurück

Comments

Sehr schön ausgewogener Glendronach, die Orientnoten mag ich immer.
