  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A bourbon! For immediate notes of waxed wood.
      Then honeyed, generous vanilla. Hyper sweet. Sweet baked fruit, chocolate, Black Forest, red fruit jam, caramelized almonds. And even some flowers.
    • Taste
      Leather, beautiful spices that are gradually diluted to the benefit of a nice sweetness, honeyed notes. Thick, soft texture.
    • Finish
      Cloves, coffee, vanilla, spicy spices, noble wood.

    bath very focused on alcohol, wood and sherry.
    • Nose
      sharp alcoholic attack!
      then sodden wood in first and just after a little toasted, appears salted butter caramel, spices on nutmeg and white pepper, chocolate.
      back of orange marmalade with cooked raisins.

    Another very good Sherry made in Glendronach. The whole is well balanced and mastered. I appreciate more and more this profile.
    • Nose
      On the nose it is clearly Sherry (well I know the color speaks for itself). But not just any aggressive Sherry, there's this little something classy. We have notes of prunes / plums accompanied by nuts and fruity coffee. The alcohol is felt at times just like the spices and slightly sulphurous notes. A beautiful complexity.
    • Taste
      Frank attack but without aggressiveness, I would say that this alcohol is pleasant enough in the mouth. A generally dry mouth on notes of plums, coffee and spices. We still find these sulfur notes typical of big Sherry.
    • Finish
      Beautiful length on spicy notes very light, coffee and then on the vanilla woody. A distant bitterness is felt after a few moments.

    Outstanding! The whisky makes a good step towards perfection, unfortunately one feels the alcohol in the mouth a small trace too much. So it's only 90 points. Terrific!
    • Nose
      Hach, I love the single Casks from Glendronach! This sherry-wood combination is just wonderful! This time it is not a sherry wall. Of course - you have an intense, sherrylastiger only whisky with clear wood in the nose. But more comes through immediately, which is not self-evident. Often the barrel rules with an iron hand. Now comes blood orange, red apple and cinnamon. Coffee and dark chocolate is also there .... and a strong-graded note does not hide. The remnants of a cherry harvest, which have fallen to the ground and there are muddy and gammlig, combine with the earth and exude a fascinating fragrance. There is also a bit of sulfur here, but not much. The nose is extremely complex, has tart and tasty elements. Now I have a subtle, herbal note, which is sometimes cheesy. Cheese Plum skewers. Alcohol is not much, but the intensity reveals that it is strong. The oak is always there, but does not seem locked, aloof and intolerant to other flavors, but combines wonderfully with the fruits. Water : Water strengthens the herbs. A whole mix - rosemary, thyme, cumin, turmeric. Great! The oak continues in the background.
    • Taste
      Full, sparkling and complex. Wood is there, but not dominant. Fruity, dark and heavy, but also fresh. Blood orange again. Orange peel, espresso, cherry. The alcohol can be felt, but it brings so many flavors with it that's okay. The second sip is not so stormy, yet intense. Creamy and fruity, it fills the whole mouth. Sweet apple alternates with prune, both are crushed to mush and boiled. Add herbs, rosemary. Water : With water does not change much on the palate, some leather comes to it.
    • Finish
      Subtle bitter, but the fruit remains very long. It is getting warmer and longer, he does not want to give way after the dram!
