Vince'
Expert Junior Vince' Review note
04 Jul 2017 6:53 pm
Vince' gave this whisky 92 points

Der Tropfen ist überaus Ölig im Glas und die Farbe erinnert an sehr dunkles Bernstein.

Nase: Volle Ladung PX Sherry im ersten Moment: Milchschokolade, Backvanille und süße Minze, die sich mit Sauerkirsche und alten Sherrynoten verbindet. Mit den alten Sherrynoten assoziiere ich ein altes lange verlassenes Holzhaus und etwas erdig-muffiges (positiv gemeint), unangebrannten Tabak, heiß gewordenes altes gesägtes Holz und altes Leder und Walnüsse. Liebstöckel und Balsamico untermauern den würzigen Charakter des Tropfens. Mit einer gewissen Zeit Sauerstoff tritt die anfängliche Süße etwas in den Hintergrund und die Nase wird saurer, weinartiger und herber mit einer immer wieder aufblitzenden Vanillenote und etwas schießpulver. Generell ist der Alkohol nicht zu spüren. Sauerstoff tut auch diesem GlenDronach wieder gut.

Geschmack: Kurz süßlich wie Spekulatius dann schnell stark aber angenehm weinartig säuerlich und würzig herb mit vielen Röstaromen wie Haselnüssen, Walnuss. Außerdem sind altes Leder und Tabak mit im Spiel.

Long story short: Ein alter Sherryfasseinfluss wie es im Buche steht.

Erinnert am Gaumen etwas an einen spritzer balsamico vermischt mit Liebstöckl, altem Sherry,  Espresso und einer kleinen Prise Zucker. Eine sehr angenehme Balance an alten Sherryaromen und Eiche. Alkohol ist nicht zu spüren. Sehr alter ledriger, würziger Sherry bleibt auf der Zunge zurück. Die Zünge wird relativ trocken im Abgang. Süße ist im Gegensatz zur Nase etwas geringer. Restsäure, Würze und Kaffee mit altem Holz definieren den langen Abgang der auf der Zunge etwas kühlend wirkt.

Kurz gesagt: Der Abgang schmeckt so, wie ein warehouse mit alten Sherryfässern riecht. Gefällt mir sehr gut!

Fazit: Sehr lecker, im Vergleich zum 1989 auch völlig anders. Natürlich mehr Sherry-Impact aber ebenfalls sehr gut. So gut, dass er für mich auch etwas vor dem 1989er liegt. Aber es kommt auch immer sehr darauf an, was man sucht. Hier bekommt man die volle Ladung alten würzigen Sherry. Beim 89er Batch 14 bekommt man eine Abfüllung mit subtileren Sherryaromen und anderem Aromenspektrum, der auch etwas experimentieren mit Wasser benötigt. Etwas, was man sonst so von Glendronach weniger erwartet.

Dram Dracula gave this whisky 91 points

Unmistakably PX, lots of coffee, milk chocolate. A slight bit of sulfur, but definitely not egregious. As is most glendronachs from the early 90's, not very complex but good. I had two bottles, but after opening one, I sold the other. Again, good, but not great. Gives me the same pleasure as many other good 90's glendronachs.
