Nose

Overripe grapes going on raisins, woodsap, almonds, stewed pears, pralines, wet leather jacket. 

Taste

Herbs allover, spiced biscuits and almond paste, toasted nuts (almonds, walnuts and pecan), dried fruits, leather, lovely oak, white wine accidity, mold.  

Finish

Bitter at first with loads of pepper, lingering accidity and sweet spices. The pralines are back but much darker now. Keeps changing, unrelenting. 

Comments

Oily, full, great texture. 15 years, yeah right ;) One of those drams I wish would've never changed.

If you are on a malt treasure hunt, watch out for the word 'discontinued'. GlenDronach 15 was easily the best whisky of the distillery's core range. The nose is overwhelmingly complex with balsamic vinegar, overripe berries, raisins, maraschino cherries and a touch of mint. A rich and powerful sherry arrival underscores the caliber of the casks used in maturation. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cinnamon and walnuts mingle with dried fruits, herbs and tannins. Substantial, savory and pleasantly spicy in the finish, this bottling is a real beauty of a Single Malt!

Nose

Фруктово-винный, ягодное варенье, сухофрукты, изюм, много изюма, курага, чернослив, яблочное повидло, ириски, сливки, лёгкие столярно-лаковые нотки - многогранный, насыщенный, плотный - очень хорошо.

Taste
 Сладкий изюм, взрыв перца, горечь дуба, мощно и насыщенно, лимонные корки, сливочные ириски.


Finish
Продолжение вкуса - специи и дубовая горечь на фоне изюма и сухофруктов, корки грейпфрута, жжёный сахар, горький шоколад, лёгкая кислинка фруктового компота.


Comments

Браво Глендронах, крайне удачный молт, мощный и насыщенный во всех составляющих, единый, монолитный, прекрасный баланс, яркий характер, многогранный и глубокий, питкий, к тому же весьма недорогой. Отлично

Nose

Zu Beginn erschlagen einen süße vergorene Trauben, fast wie ein alter Madeirawein. Dahinter eine leichte Frische, Mentholbonbons. Sonnengereifte Orangen. Süße Teigwaren in einer Konditorei. Tolles Aroma, wie ein Urlaub auf der iberischen Halbinsel

Taste

Honigsüß zu Beginn, die Orangen bleiben. Vanille kommt durch. Tanninen. Wunderbare Sherrynoten von Dunklen Früchten. Zum Ende Hin würzig und bitterer werdend. Walnusskuchen.

Finish

Mittellang, wärmend. Kaffeenoten. Die Würze bleibt im Mund. Leicht pfefferig.

Comments

Richtig schönes Teil, für mich fast besser als der Allardice. 88 Punkte

Absolutely briliant whisky, I was lucky enough to secure a couple of bottles when they were still very affordable. Love the nose with deep smell of sultanas, chocolate and some sulphur and acidity. Delivers in the sherried taste department with quite a long and spicy finish.

My bottle was bought and opened on 9th November 2014 (Jones’). Rich, well aged fruitcake, sherry, walnuts  and savoury notes in abundance, Opens beautifully, well defined and articulated structure. Classic dryish/ bitter finish. A 'Sherry Bomber's must try whisky - this one is elegant and engaging.

The smell of the bottom of the glass the following day is glorious. Do not wash out your Glen Cairn! - Rinse it with a less convincing whisky!...
