Nose

Der erste Eindruck ist von einer schönen, intensiven Fruchtigkeit geprägt. Eine Welle von frischen Pfirsichen, in Begleitung von Grapefruit, Orangen, Vanilleschoten, Karamellbonbons und zuckrigem Tortenguss, erreicht meine Nasenspitze. Die Fruchtnote ist überwiegend süß und erfrischend, mit einer minimalen Säuerlichkeit. Im Hintergrund verweilen bereits eine leichte Eichenwürze und frisch geschnittene Tabakblätter. Sehr untypisch für einen GlenDronach, den ich in einer Blindverkostung niemals erkannt hätte.

Taste

Weich, ölig und sehr vollmundig am Gaumen. Der Aromentransport ist sehr intensiv, obwohl der Whisky über einen Alkoholgehalt von „nur“ 46% verfügt. Beim ersten Schluck macht sich ein leichtes Prickeln an der Zungenspitze bemerkbar. Die bereits beim Nosing festgestellten Pfirsichnoten setzen auch im Geschmack ein energisches Ausrufezeichen. Der säuerliche Einschlag wird etwas dominanter, den ich in Richtung Blutorange einordnen würde. Weiterhin besteht eine süße und erfrischende Fruchtigkeit. Vanille, Karamell und Milchschokolade machen nun auf sich aufmerksam. Eine spürbare Eichenwürze zementiert zum Schluss den Weg in Richtung Finish. Insgesamt hinterlässt der Tropfen einen harmonischen Eindruck und eine nicht zu überfordernde Vielschichtigkeit an Aromen.

Finish

Mittellang. Frische Pfirsiche und saftige Orangen fluten nochmals den Gaumen und sorgen für den finalen, fruchtigen Frischekick. Eine dezente Säuerlichkeit blitzt ebenfalls wieder auf, welche aber eher im Hintergrund verweilt. Die würzigen Eichenholznoten gewinnen nun spürbar an Dominanz und verursachen eine dezente Bitterkeit am Gaumen.

Nose

Weinige, leicht nussige Aromen strömen in die Nase. Süße Trauben. Pfirsich, Litschi. Rosenholz, Sahnelikör. Sehr cremig. Rosenparfüm. Langsam kommt dezent etwas Malz hinzu.


Taste

Voll, süß mit Pfirsich und Pfeifen-Tabak. Eiche kommt beim zweiten Schluck durch und bringt auch eine ganz leicht säuerliche Note (nasses Holz?) mit. Cremig. Trauben. Das Nachschmecken ist süß mit Tabak und aromatischem Kräuterregal. Unglaublich süffig.


Finish

Mittellang, Pfirsich-Tabak verbleibt.


Comments

Sehr interessant und ausgesprochen lecker. Enorm süffig und bis auf den Anklang von säuerlichem Holz gibt es nichts zu bemängeln. Es gibt starke 87 Punkte.

Andytka3 gave this whisky 86 points

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.

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

Comments

A very enjoyable cask finish. Expressive and neatly balanced between sublative and additive maturation. A little too expensive nowadays however.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
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.


Comments

A different and very interesting whisky.

Well matured.
