    • Nose
      deep, slightly cocoa, dried apricots, almonds, dust
    • Taste
      sweet, caramel, dried apricots, orange, Crimean home wine
    • Finish
      medium, caramel, dried apricots

    Not really a fan. Sauternes ruins everything. 
    • Taste
      A young glendronach, nice sherry and banana. But sour grapes and soap. 

  4. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Rather complex for a young whisky like this. Although I find this a tad to bitter and missed a bit of sweetness as well, given the use of a fortified wine cask. Well-made whisky, but I’ve had better Glendronachs.
    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity. The alcohol is subdued and I get hints of fermenting pumpkin and paprika. Icing sugar and floral undertones of heather flower and tulips.
    • Taste
      Quite spicy and a good dose of oak. Interplay between bitter chocolate and sour grapes, with a touch of caramel and/or toffee in the background. A minor soapiness is emerging, only to dissipate quickly behind oak and mint.
    • Finish
      Medium. The caramel becomes more pronounced in the finish. Retains pleasant tannins reminiscent of orange bitters.
