  1. Deathchant scored this whisky 89 points Newbie

    This whisky felt a bit too smooth and acidic for a Glendronach in the beginning (first dram). The drams after, the distillery character revealed itself into a strong, dark herbal Glendronach just like I'm used to. Especially the acidic notes I was not familiar with when tasting Glendronach. This is a very interesting whisky that is acidic, very sherry-like, oaky, herbal, and with hints of leather and tobacco. It gets more interesting and powerful after a 2nd or 3rd sip, and this whisky ticks all the boxes!
    • Nose
      No immediate alcohol, very smooth and no typical "Glendronach strength" on the nose. Lots of vanilla and cherries, chocolate ice cream pie but especially creme brulee, also unlike the dark chocolate notes of typical Glendronachs. A bit of a damp smell, oak wood, shoe polish. This whisky smells a bit acidic like red-fruit-acidity. It also smells like fresh bogwater. Further some raisins and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      After opening the bottle, the first dram tasted very different from the following drams. Boy, is this whisky acidic! Lightly toasted oak drenched in acidic water. The alcohol burns lightly in the mouth like a chili pepper does, only more smooth. Warming in mouth and stomach, very sweet as well, oaky, dried plums, clove, raisins, and at the end nutmeg and very herbal, plant-like herbal. After swallowing it gets dryer. After a 2nd and 3rd sip, more oak and the strong Glendronach character reveals itself and the acidity moves from foreground to background, but still there.
    • Finish
      Raisin-sweetyness, oak, leather and a hint of tobacco. Long after taste: after 45 minutes, you can still taste it. Warm, lingering, cozy
