    Maybe not the best SC from Glendronach, but it's a potent sherry beast.
    • Nose
      Heavy plum syrup. Raisins with dark choco glaze.

      Spicy on cinnamon. Noticable abv.
    • Taste
      Raisins and dark stewed fruits. Darkest of chocolates and chared leather. Really heavy stuff.
    • Finish
      Develops a hot spicyness that is drying.

      Medium+ lenght.

    I can not understand Ralfys review at all. For me, this Glendronach is one of the best I have tasted in recent times. The famous 1993 vintage makes its name here. In addition, here again in a first-class Oloro barrel was matured. For me a smooth recommendation! Does not shy away from the £ 17 shipping from UK - it's worth it :)
    • Nose
      What a flavor! Dark, fruity sherry streams through the air immediately. Plum syrup, cinnamon and roasted coffee beans complement everything harmoniously.
    • Taste
      Bäääm! 58.9% press correctly on the tongue! If you like it, you will love it! :) A sweet fruit cake fills the whole mouth. Dark chocolate notes paired with coffee and spices from the oak round off the fruity-sweet yet austere overall impression. With water: With the addition of 2-3 drops of water, he gets a milder touch on the tongue. The flavors are even more effective - a dream!
    • Finish
      Lonely long lasting and warming. Towards the end, the mouth becomes a little drier and there is a smooth tart and slightly bitter note in the mouth, which calls for a second sip.

    Ralfy really gives this one a harsh review:

    Ok Ralfy's taste is not everybodys taste. But I would certainly say try before buy on this one.
