  1. asmazda scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This was the first Glendronach single cask that I wouldn't buy a second bottle.   If the price was much lower, I'd give it a higher rating.
    • Nose
      Not the usual Glendronach sherry bombs.  Sherry is definitely evident, but the distillate shines through along with poached pears and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Mixed berries, loads of caramel, and then some vanilla and cinnamon.  It's not rich tasting and a little too bitter (or at least the kind of bitterness that's not pleasing).
    • Finish
      Fairly long and dry.  The sweetness and flavors of the palette turn into green banana skin, leaving astringency and bitterness.

    At Glendronach Distillery they keep on pumping out these single casks but I guess that many people (including myself) have reached the point of over-saturation. The surprise factor is gone because they all taste more or less the same. The ever rising prices for these 20 to 25 years old single casks still keep on surprising me, though :-(

    On the nose, leather, oak, sherry, cloves, slight trace of white pepper and lemony-mandarin fruit!
    wood and sherry with dust more present at the return.
    • Nose
      sherry, mold, spices, vanilla cooked, oaky.
