    characteristic fragrance of Glendronach with strong spices, maderized wine on sherries and wood!
    a flat, linear side, almost too obvious.
    • Nose
      pronounced sherry, imposing wood, a little sulfur, dust, raisins and macerated ,.
      very spicy return, coriander, nutmeg and cooked orange marmalade.

    Very nice and interesting at the same time! Surely only for barrel lovers and Herb nerds, but then very good! At the same time, it offers the sweet, pleasing aspects that make the whisky complex and interesting. I am completely satisfied, exactly my thing, maybe a touch tingling on the tongue. 89 points.

      Sherry and lots of wood stick out. In addition to the typical dark dried fruit and pastries, I also take apple true - baked apple. Some sulfur lurks behind the fruit cargo. In general, the nose is rather dry, but some sweetness comes through again and again. The alcohol carries the whole wonderful. Now comes a leather chair, dusty, smooth and slightly musty.

      Water: Water raises the sulfur slightly, but only briefly, then it gets softer, sweeter and more fruity. The oak is something in the background. It reminds me of freshly baked baguette with warm plum jam! Sulfur comes through again and again.

      Dry, very dry onset. Then coffee, oak and only with delay fruit and leather. The alcohol pushes, tingles quite on the tongue. The astringent feeling subsides and a fruity-seeming bitterness is formed, which becomes very strong in the after-taste. The wood rules the palate! So extreme I would not have expected it from the nose!

      Water: A few drops of water are incredibly good. Still powerful and intense, but at the same time also soft, the palate now comes along. The mouthfeel is less tart, but more fruity with developing sweetness, which does not make it to Nachschmecken. Leather takes over the dominance on the palate now.

      Long, warm and bitter, the whisky remains in memory. Fruit and coffee fade together, very slowly. With some water, plums and fermented apples remain in the mouth and throat.
