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.
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.
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.
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..
Bitter, in a good way..
A lot of wood flavors and wet paper.
Long and powerful finish.
