The nose is less aromatic and more playful than the new 15 year old version of GlenDronach. Also slightly more subdued with more direct malty and nutty notes and a tad more grassy (freshly cut grass). With tones of walnut and apple peel, comes loose well after a few minutes. Show wet earth and old roses and then develop aromas of Turkish Delight and orange blossom water. The taste is very nice with delicious aromas of sherry, coffee, steamed fruit, toasted walnut bread, chocolate with some more notes of eaux-de-vie de fruits (kirsch and raspberries). The medium finish is pleasant with returning sherry and eaux-de-vie (raspberry) tones.

Strong sherry dried fruits (much more intense than Glendronach 12yo)

Taste

Similar with Glendronach 12, but much more intense. Very smooth and oily body. Nutty.

Finish

ends with sherry dried fruits, chocolate, and vanilla.

Does anybody know if it´s right that the 2018 bottles must contain Whisky that is at least 23 years old?

They didn´t distill between 1996 and 2001!?

Comments

Dunkler, alter und leckerer Glendronach, Komplex, Alkohol toll eingebunden, viel Sherryeinfluss aber keine Sherrybombe, gut ausbalanciert, braucht gut 15 Minuten Zeit im Glas, dann öffnet er sich immer mehr. Gutes P/L, wirkt ein wenig wie alter Cognac, alles schon gesetzt, herber und trockener als der 12er, ein Whisky mit dem man sich lange beschäftigen kann, ideal für die kalte Jahreszeit
