  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

    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.

    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.
