    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      The first impression is characterized by a beautiful, intense fruitiness. A wave of fresh peaches, accompanied by grapefruit, oranges, vanilla pods, caramel sweets and sugary pies, reaches my nostrils. The fruit note is predominantly sweet and refreshing, with a minimal acidity. A light oak and freshly cut tobacco leaves linger in the background. Very untypical for a GlenDronach, which I would never have recognized in a blind tasting.
    • Taste
      Soft, oily and very full-bodied on the palate. The aroma transport is very intense, although the whisky has an alcohol content of "only" 46%. The first sip makes a slight tingling sensation on the tip of the tongue noticeable. The peach notes already noted during the nosing also set an energetic exclamation point in the taste. The sourish impact becomes a bit more dominant, which I would classify as blood orange. Furthermore, there is a sweet and refreshing fruitiness. Vanilla, caramel and milk chocolate are now attracting attention. A noticeable oak spice cements the way to finish. Overall, the drop leaves a harmonious impression and a not to be overburdened complexity of flavors.
    • Finish
      Medium. Fresh peaches and juicy oranges flood the palate again and provide the final, fruity freshness kick. A subtle acidity also flashes again, but which lingers rather in the background. The spicy oak notes now gain noticeable dominance and cause a subtle bitterness on the palate.

  3. Lorion scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very interesting and very tasty. Enormously tasty and there is nothing to complain about except for the hint of sour wood. There are 87 strong points.
    • Nose
      Viney, slightly nutty aromas pour into the nose. Sweet grapes. Peach, lychee. Rosewood, cream liqueur. Very creamy. Rose perfume. Slowly a little bit of malt is added.
    • Taste
      Full, sweet with peach and pipe tobacco. Oak comes through the second sip and brings also a very slightly sour note (wet wood?). Creamy. Grapes. The Nachschmecken is sweet with tobacco and aromatic herb shelf. Incredibly tasty.
    • Finish
      Medium-long, peach tobacco remains.

  4. Andytka3 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N- Brilliant gold on copper hue, a pleasure to the eyes. Obvious deep fried banana, orange zest with strawberry oozing thru.  Nice compote of fruits are backed by darker element of spices, pepper, cigar box and oily cedar wood, chocolaty.

    P- Rather unique, savoury air dried ham, sea spray of salts, not usual for Glendronach, Milky sweet vanilla. Oakiness develop overtimes with wisp of leather, spent match and phenol at tail. Semi-complex, balanced at rather thin line.

    F- Medium, winery tannin, nutmeg and young tart berries, touch of somehow underwhelming fat and oily spirit linger.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  5. RichardMayston scored this whisky 68 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Strong point, initially a off plastic note, but that dissapears leaving lovely Sherry nose. 
    • Taste
      Bit thin, disappointed compared to nose
    • Finish
      Bit short 

  6. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very enjoyable cask finish. Expressive and neatly balanced between sublative and additive maturation. A little too expensive nowadays however.
    • Nose
      Ripe yellow fruits – honeydew, apricot, and peaches. Immediately sweeter than the Sauternes! With autumnal berries, bees wax and plum sauce. Nice!
    • Taste
      Mellow arrival, juicy and balanced. A touch of struck matches or capers in vinegar. Bright and vibrant, oranges, lemons, and toffee. 
    • Finish
      Medium. Sweet and honeyed, with a dark chocolate edge and mild tannins

    sweet peach monster.
    • Nose
      very clean & fruity: peach, vanilla, fruit pie 
    • Taste
      smooth, jelly rings with peach flavour, orange, vanilla, very sweet and slightly sour. 
    • Finish
      medium long, orange, oak and peach (again).

  9. peatbogger scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    A different and very interesting whisky.

    Well matured.
    • Nose
      Intensly sweet on an unusual mix of natural and artificial notes. 

      Brown sugar, crunchy caramel, bubble gum with "fake" fruit flavour, and vanilla pods.

      Fruity, but also darker notes of choco and soft leather.
    • Taste
      As expected, it's sweet. Nice sweetness indeed.

      Rich but very fresh on notes of peach and ripe yellow plums. Light herbal notes in the back.
    • Finish
      Sweetness lasts but it ends slowly on a slightly zesty and bitterfresh note.
