  1. Erik1908 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Another magnificent single cask bottling by Glendronach. Beautiful and strong nose. A first sip made me immediately reach out to some water. Much too strong for me to drink it like it has been bottled. This lead to a slightly accessible dram. Loads of fruit and pleasant sweetness.
    The finish is medium long and for sure the weakest part of this whisky.

  2. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Yes, this is a nice portmalt, not only gefinished, but 12 years in Port Puncheon matured. Intense, sweet and fruity, really tasty. With 3 drops of water even more strawberry notes and even more sweetness come out. Too bad that he is only 12 years old, there would have been more in it.
    • Nose
      Fichtennadelsirup, fair, cotton candy, stomach bread, plum jam, blackberry jelly, raspberries, leather, roasted almonds, roasted nuts, vanilla, acacia honey, milk chocolate, intense nose
    • Taste
      oily, sweet, spicy, strawberry jam, plum jam, black cherry jam, raspberry jelly, peach jelly, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, cotton candy, vanilla pudding with hot cherries, acacia honey, apricots, a drop of balsamic, a hint of Maggi, milk chocolate, dark chocolate sauce, juice oranges, something Anise and a lot of dark licorice
    • Finish
      medium long, intense, sweet, fruity, spicy, with strawberry jam, blueberries, vanilla pudding and chocolate sauce with a touch of ginger, a hint of anise and lots of licorice ... simply beautiful ...
