Of course, judging this whisky objectively is nonsense. This is just too much "drum-around" in my rating. I'll try it anyway! For an 11-year-old whisky, this barrel is extremely meaningful. Of course, the sherry keg plays the main role, but it's also just a good barrel. No "miss notes", no sulfur, not too much sherry. The bottling lives up to its promises. I was able to try through my tour before, and it was not a question of whether this whisky should be bought / bottled. Just a good GlenDronach. The price is 84 pounds. That is relatively much, compared to other hand-filled but absolutely in the frame.

Full, strong. The alcohol is well integrated, comes in almost 60% but of course good. Ordinary sherry freight with raisin, plum, burnt toffee and light spice. The nose promises a powerful sherry barrel whisky.
Something tingling and neatly strong. Full sweetness, almost syrupy and sluggish in the glass. With water, the dram becomes cinnamon and velvety / soft. Fruit jam with raspberry.
Again, of course, decent strength, but surprisingly little wood influence. It's just a younger whisky. A certain spiciness is there, besides the sweetness. Maybe something in the direction of maple syrup? Overall long-lasting, bitter. Cocoa, dark chocolate and some orange peel.
