      Dense and heavy, your usual GlenDronach's - dark dried prunes, raisins. My favourite dark chocolate, those above 90% cocoa. It's best to let it breathe for 10 minutes or more, as the nose is bit shy. A lot fresher and brighter after 10 minutes. Stewed ginger, a slight sourish vinegar notes, musty carpet. Lots of honey as well, also a slight hint of smokiness

      Ginger, treacle, dried fruits, nice dark chocolate. Candy sweetness, with some sour notes. Lacks of depth and layers which I expect since the nose is full of flavors.

      Dark chocolate, espresso, somewhat fresh after taste. Very long finish, reminds me of the 99% Lindt dark chocolate.

      Yes, fruit cake, candied fruits, raisins, dark honey, molasses, tobacco, sherry - very good!
    • Taste
      92 92
      Punchy, oily, sirupy, good sweetness, dried fruits, little menthol, good sherry wood, spices, pepper, ginger, littl ebit teaish
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long, warm, becoming more punchy, still fruity and rather sweet, not drying, but zesty and probably hints of grapefruits but I don't feel much bitterness

    + H2O: Unfortunately, the nose muffles, on the palate a little less bitterness, but the finish remains unbalanced bitter, the alcohol is more prominent. + H2O: just before watery, but still not balanced

    • Nose
      sweet sherry, some alcohol, sweet fruits, fruit cake, very nice!
    • Taste
      starts sweet, ends bitterly, compared to the nose closed, some alcohol
    • Finish
      the bitterness becomes stronger and stronger, very long and lasting

    Really quite special, very painful ... But unlike other tasters, I like (although I could not drink any occasion ...
