- Glendronach was closed between 2/1996 and 5/2002 so this whisky is a minimum of 21 years 2 months old
- Sublime whisky !
A deep agreeable sweet nutty smell is coming out the glass while slow fatty tears are going down. Coffee and chocolate together with sulphur and tobacco ashes.
Strong coming in for a 46% but a rich full body filled with sherry and oak, walnuts and malt in a light smoky environment. Not creamy or oily as expected from the tears in the glass but more like a light syrup.
Long aftertaste, drying out nicely but not too far. Oak and light warming spices. Light smoke and tolerable bitterness.. Sweet sherry.
Milk chocolate, stewed fruits, prunes, figs, dates, vrey intense, lots of overripe fruits. No sharpness and alcoholic note to it. Only the overwhelming amount of mellow fruits with brown sugar and chocolate
Big arrival, complex and integrated oaky development. A little chocolate, and the dark fruits from the nose.
- Excellent full and intense sherry barrel matured malt. Wonderfully complex and interesting with a pleasantly bitter note on the finish. Clearly pronounced oak. For me there is something behind the GD 21 years, but PLV is great!
full; clear sherry note; Sweet; dark fruits in alcohol (including plum, raisin); some caramel; Oak
complex and oily in the mouth; fruity and sweet; spicy oak clearly noticeable; spices; tart chocolate notes
long; slightly dry; Sweetness which increasingly turns into spicy-tart oak aromas; Dried fruit; spices
- Conclusion: Blindtasting Advenstkalender: typically delicious Glendronach, fruit bomb, super overall impression, only a little dry
Sherry, sweet, dark ripe fruit, the alcohol is there but relatively well involved
Strong, balanced, fruity, sherry, slightly dry & spicy
Medium to long, balanced but not explosive, too dry
