Nose: Big honey, PX seems to be taken the centre stage rather than Oloroso. Barley, malty, very malty actually. Close to Milo. Not your typical sherry bomb GlenDronach, this is rather fresh and subtle. Wet raisins, sweet fruits. Grassy.

Palate: Big honey again, pretty fiery. Ginger, sweet candy, chocolate. 

Finish: Pretty dried and warm. Dry from the PX I guess, warm from the ginger. Quite spirity. Pretty long though

Balance: A bit too balance for a cask strength whisky. Kind of lack the complexity of a "GlenDronach". 

Price: The most expensive among Arbelour Abunadh and Glenfarclas 105. I would rather pick up these two instead of this GlenDronach.

Verdict: Pretty disappointing from GlenDronach. Certainly not the best from them, but they can surely do better than this. If you are looking for the signature GlenDronach's nose and palate, this is not the whisky for you. If you are looking for a sherry bomb cask strength whisky, Look elsewhere. If you're a die hard GlenDronach fan, try them before you buy.

Defeatless gave this whisky 85 points

Nose:
A little hefty with the high alcohol. But behind that, there is raisin, some toffee, another sweet note I cannot name and there is the obvious sherry note in the background.

Taste:
Very full on sherry notes in here. loads of red fruit, almost like a chupachup lollipop. There is also a bit of tannins in here with it's classic bitter note.

Body:
Quite creamy

Finish:
Long length. The obvious notes of sherry and dried red fruit, combine with a pleasing note of woodshavings.

Price:
Around €65 is quite decent priced

Presentation:
Decent.

Nose

A bit sharp, sweet, honey, some liquorice, sherrynotes, raisins, toffee, caramel, apples, grapes, some freshly sawn wood, resin and some nuts. 

Taste

Pepper, sweet, honey, caramel, slightly bitter, coffee and oranges. Quite oily.

Finish

Medium length, chocolate, pepper, sherrynotes, dried fruits, raisins and slightly drying over time.

Comments

It has a sharp edge, but I still liked it. There is sherry, but it ain't a sherrybomb.

Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Oproti CS 1 je vůně svěžejší a ostřejší. Dřevo, lehké sherry, krémovost. Syrové čerstvé dřevo, ostrost, jehličnatost a větrovost. (87 b)

Taste

Ostrá, štiplavá, krémově dřevitá s čokoládou a lehkým sherry vlivem. S vodou sládne a ještě víc zkrémovatí. (87 b)

Finish

Přijde mi, že na mě působí obdobně, jako když jsem v roce 2014 ochutnal CS1. Ale po třech letech pak CS1 působila výrazně lépe. Bude zajímavé CS5 přechutnat zase za pár let, uvidíme. Děkuji Filetovi za pozvání na panáka.

Color
Deep gold
Nose

Orange, Vanille, Zimt, erinnert an einen saftigen Christstollen mit Zitronat, Orangeat, Marzipan, Rosinen und Puderzucker oben darauf. 

Taste

Sherry, Süße, getrocknete Früchte, Orange

Finish

Würzig, ganz leicht pfeffrig, erst mäßige Süße, dann trockener werdend. Mittellang. 

Comments

Ich muss zugeben ich bin Glendronach-Fanboy und daher vielleicht etwas voreingenommen. Ich denke für Sherry-Fans ist es ein Positiv-Beispiel für einen NAS Whisky. Definitiv gut gereift. Wirkt nicht trotz NAS kein bisschen unreif. Durch die Fassstärke hat er natürlich einen ordentlichen Antritt, ist aber trotzdem vergleichsweise mild. Lecker.
