Special occasion, special dram.
What a color. What an odor! A pleasant acid, dissolved in an oak beam, is your nose. Something like that. I am a big fan of Glendronach, even though prices are going up too fast. The taste is bitter, sour and sour - but all mainly of the interesting kind, as can be the case with really good dishes. There is a sweet tooth in the distance.
This grows with every sip. Boy. From maggi and salt flavors to tropical spices, cinnamon, anise. The comparison with the (rightly) immensely popular 18YO Allerdice is impossible, this is of a different order. This mainly points out my lack of experience and even my limited vocabulary; it is very special, very tasty and I cannot explain why at all.
This is simply great in any case. And then, suddenly, up. And that is disappointing.
