    whiskyfun:

    Glendronach 14 yo 1994/2009 (58.5%, OB, oloroso sherry puncheon, cask #2311, 602 bottles) Colour: pale gold (so remarkably pale). Nose: the distillate is talking, not the wood, and neither the wine. It does remind of some very old 'light' Glendronachs, and I find this superb. Some kind of sweet oil, maybe argan? Or very sweet olive oil, Provence style? We're touching the heart of the distillery, which is always moving. A touch of coal smoke. Mouth: no, I was wrong. This doesn't work, there's something chemical, I don't know, as if the spirit and the cask had clashed. It works at times, but some soap and some burnt plastic keep being some kind of spoilsports. Fail, for once. Finish: long, interestingly salty at times, but otherwise too plasticky. Is that a word? Comments: I don't know what to think. It's an odd cask. They may have added seawater... Or was it a Tupperware cask? SGP:472 - 72 points (for the nose).

    This bottling was one of two bottled for Parkers Whisky Shop which pre-dated the release of Batch One of single cask releases

    A very odd Glendronach. Hot and spicy. Not that many sherry influences.
    • Nose
      Smoky. Leather. Rubbery. Lapsang Souchong tea. Also a sharp (metalic) edge. I would say a tad 'dirty'. Not a nose you expect of a Glendronach from an oloroso sherry cask.
    • Taste
      Starts with notes of sherry. But immediately followed by oak and lots of spices (paprika, cinnamon and ginger). Also some peat. Quite heavy, not very gentle. 
    • Finish
      Long and spicy. Dark chocolate and tannins. Bitter-sweet at the end.

    Bitter and wet paper, can a whisky be good with that kind of flavors, yes indeed. Try..
    • Nose
      Bitter, in a good way..
    • Taste
      A lot of wood flavors and wet paper.
    • Finish
      Long and powerful finish.
