  1. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Very delicious. A pure 21-year-old PX-Glendronach - not as sweet as expected - in comparison with the (standard) Parliament, this one has more flavor nuances to offer and is very well done. I especially like that the keg does not cover everything.
    • Nose
      Sherry grenade from the PX barrel - here's everything you need: thick sweet raisins, oranges, dark chocolate sauce, freshly roasted espresso, thick plum jam
    • Taste
      the nose is full in the mouth, strong onset, with a few drops of water: syrup, caramel, raisins, plum jam, oranges - here too dark chocolate sauce, cherries, blackberries, dark fruit compote, sweet tobacco leaves - only the espresso from the nose is missing, for that comes a light peppermint note that I did not expect here
    • Finish
      medium, with latte (now still the coffee note, but milder than intended), also at the end of the slight peppermint note that fits surprisingly well

    Only a short review: I personally don't like too much wood-influence in the older scotchs and had some disappointing experiences with them. And I love sweet PX.

    Under these two conditions, this GD SC is the perfect stuff for me. I have tasted a few of them so far and liked them usually a lot. This cask however is my absolute favorite. Are the ratings justified? In my opinion yes. By far one of my highest ratings so far. Great ginger taste! Finish not incredibly long since the age is not enough 93/100

    Color: gold-brown amber.

    Aroma:
    aromatic and warm with sweet raisins and lighter sherry aromatics typical of the PX barrels. Fine and warm notes of different woods and spices.
    Looks elegant and harmonious, not overloaded. Heavy notes of tropical fruit, overripe honeydew melon (solvent), orange appear lukewarm.

    Taste:
    aromatic and spicy, with fine sweet sherry and aromas of warm woods, spices, a little oily, sweet-tart-sweet, slightly fruity with orange, with delicate oak notes, slightly dark, but a touch of barrel pleasant and not musty or bitter. Very good and very tasty. Enjoyed in small sips, it does not require the addition of water.

    finish:
    initially slightly fruity and sweetish later with delicate oak notes, some sherry, dry fruit, a hint of cigar box, sweet, soft and very long fading.

    Sherry Lady Glendronach, not a monster. So the fine nature and with water a light and elegant Christmas dream. It stands out! Anyone looking for something special is right here.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Not too dark sherry and light raisins with spicy oak, but not spicy. Now the used leather saddle and the alcohol is perfectly integrated. All nouns from the Christmas season on the nose. Very good barrel timing. Minimally noticeable match.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Dark fresh fruits like in the nose, but the sweetness is not in the foreground. Wonderful dark chocolate and nice oak flavor. The oily texture is supported by balanced sweetness and rich spice. Praise to the barrel management. Respect.
    • Finish

      Sated and long, it lingers on the palate. Dark milk chocolate served in espresso. Sweet tobacco pouch hangs on the horse saddle. I have to say this barrel was a stroke of luck. Should bunk a bottle of it for me. It is currently available for 300EUR. Phew ... has to think. I locked Willi in the basement for now;)

    A nice whisky that shows what a few drops of water can do. The nose and the start in the mouth were great without water, but the finish was too woody and tart for me. With water the nose subsides considerably, the mouth becomes sweeter in the beginning but unfortunately also one-dimensional, but the finish is quite pleasant. A combination of the two would be great. so you have to cut corners here.
    • Nose
      91 91
      A very nice nose, syrupy sweet, raisins or sultanas, a hint of espresso, a few drops of Maggi, the PX barrel clearly sets the tone here, burnt toast, including some lemon peel, the alcohol is super integrated, yes a little acid, tangy orange, wet tobacco, once you have the oranges they play a noticeable role, a thin layer of chocolate is around the oranges, very nice
      After the first sip, the chocolate comes through more clearly, the same applies to the roasted aromas
      Wow with water the nose is simply gone, I've never had anything like that, just great chocolate with burnt toast, now nothing more, just a few drops, but slowly it comes back, but still thinner and less intense
    • Taste
      90 90
      full-bodied, sweet, creamy, raisins, orange, sweet acidity. Chocolate, bittersweet, espresso, becomes drier, nuts, with the second sip the oak comes along and accompanies the PX sweetness, nice roasted aromas, and then salt comes again
      super sweet with water, there is a lot going on, supple, very sweet, orange juice, a little chocolate, a hint of espresso and the oak actually stays pleasantly in the background
    • Finish
      87 87
      getting tart, salt on the tip of the tongue, the sweetness is replaced by oak, still creamy, so the first sip was not my cup of tea, ne is too woody on the second sip, let's see what it does with water power...
      Water saves the finish, now even more sweet, oranges, sparkling, and significantly less oak, hardly bitter

    That a little bit more Opposite the Glendronach 21st presenter, sweeter and just in cask strength.

    • Nose
      Nutmeg, cinnamon, fresh tobacco leaf, grape must, some sulfur. The high alcohol content carries the flavors very well without getting into the foreground.
    • Taste
      A pleasant sweetness pairs with the oak freight without becoming unpleasant. Not too sweet and not oak-rich. Great viscosity like syrup. Never alcoholic. In addition a pleasant acid which stimulates the salivary flow.
    • Finish
      Long finish, only a little dry, also here is the tobacco leaf.

  9. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Blind tasting: Straight through - Powerful sherry whisky. Worthy of a Christmas painting. I did not have any of them yet - but that's how I imagine a Glendronach Single Cask.
    • Nose
      Sherry and dark fruits, raisins, plums, spicy oak, dusty old leather, hardly any alcohol in the nose.
    • Taste
      Dark sweet fruits like in the nose, but the sweetness is not in the foreground, dark chocolate and beautiful oak.
    • Finish
      Long and intense, beautiful barrel flavor, without going to the bitter, again the chocolate touch, espresso.
