Die erste Nase ist sehr süss, ich finde aber zunächst immer wieder einen etwas störenden, "künstlich" riechenden Unterton, der den Gesamteindruck etwas beeinträchtigt. Nach Zugabe einiger Tropfen Wasser ist dieser Stich schlagartig verschwunden, und das tolle Karamell (Werthers Echte) entfaltet sich ganz wunderbar. Die ungebremste Süsse setzt sich im Mund fort - eine schöne, angenehm prickelnde Wärme steigt nach jedem Schluck auf. Nichts brennt, tolle Einbindung des Alkohols (auch unverdünnt). Langer Abgang, etwas Trockenheit im Hals - toll! Schöne Komplexität, hätte ihn etwas älter als seine elf Jahre geschätzt.

Quite enjoyable. This Glendronach is not very chatty. More fruits and sherry by adding some water.

Een goede, lekkere sherry whisky die niet alleen overheersende sherry smaken heeft.

The best dram ever will be my next dram!

Color
Tawny
Nose

Milde, fruchtige Süße mit Sherry und Karamell. Kaffeearomen im Hintergrund.

Taste

Cremig, feine Textur. Ebenfalls mild und ausgewogen. Aufgrund des etwas höheren Alkoholgehaltes, prickelt die Sherrysüße in Verbindung mit Holzaromen angenehm auf der Zunge. Im Hintergrung finden sich dezente Gewürze und weitere Holzaromen.

Finish

Süß und eher kurz.

Comments

Nicht besonders komplex, dennoch sehr reif für sein Alter.
