  1. rdavek scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    The best Glendronach single cask I've tasted. A beautiful blend of bitter orange, dried fruits, wood spice and a long finish with shades of chinotto. A perfectly balanced whisky.

    Chocolate Cherry Pie! Rotten cherry, sherry, raisins, orange, buckwheat honey, cedar, caramel, cream, toasted bread crust, bitter, tobacco, dark bitter chocolate, old varnished wood, leather, truffle, licorice. Hematogen?

    the best Glendronach Single Cask I had so far!

    Maybe a bit overpowered by the Sherry Cask as there is not much of Glendronach left but it is simply a great cask!

    Nose: sweet aroma, buckwheat honey, plum fig, fresh strawberries, flat peaches, black currants, fortified wine, a drop of menthol.
    Water nails everything, do not add it.
    Taste: tart, sweet, burning, mashed apples, strawberry jam, walnuts, mushrooms, dry sherry, cigar.
    Finish: long, warm, sweet and sour, tobacco, oak, bitterness, kumquat jam, prunes.
    Conclusion: awesome molt. He sat with him for about 40 minutes and he gave out such a palette. Virtuosity tingles a little nose, and so on.

    Wow a really nice Glendronach, the standards are indeed good by the bank, but it starts then only really in the single Casks.
    • Nose
      Roasted nuts, sherry, dark fruits, nice spicy, oak, chocolate, espresso, tobacco, slightly floral, peppermint, the nose is nicely intense and the alcohol is well integrated, the nut flavors give the command
    • Taste
      strong onset, sweet with a potpourri of dark fruits, then come the roasted nuts, espresso, dark chocolate, then dry oak, slightly peppery, tearing, nice intense, the alcohol pushes the flavors well with water it gets a bit more supple, but no less intense, it gets along quite well
    • Finish
      salty, hanuta, tart, grapefruit, oak, long-lasting and warming

    Have tasted quite many GD from the 90´s. Must say this is a very special bottling :)

    Very vinous, chocolatey, round. In the mouth too. High level.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Tasting Note by LMDW (Whisky.fr):

    Color: orange-colored copper with old gold reflections. Nose: fine, racy. A superb rancio red fruit (currant, raspberry) and apricot gives a lot of elegance to the first nose. It evolves on citrus (orange, mandarin) and toffee. With vigor, it becomes gradually nobly spicy (saffron, cumin) and tertiary (truffle, mousse). Beeswax and encaustic notes add sparkle to the aromatic palette. Mouth: firm, authoritarian. The attack on the palate is so lively that you have to leave time for the taste palette to put itself in place. At this stage, we feel more sensations than we feel. When she decided to open, the mouth offers jumble: melon, candied citrus fruits, pears, red and black fruits, camphor, heady flowers, exotic fruits (mango), cinnamon, coffee, heady flowers ... Final: long, inexhaustible. Roasted nuts, crushed almonds, rhubarb jam, noble spices (coriander, cardamom), licorice stick, chocolate, new heady flowers (reseda, hyacinth) are linked body and soul at the end of mouth . The retro-olfaction is floral (tulip), minty and spicy (star anise, clove). The empty glass shows itself so heady that perfumes of camphor and turpentine emerge from the glass.
