Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonIntense. On lively raisin. Alcohol. Bitter dry chocolate. Some hints of sulphur in there? Sweet candied fruits too, grilled oranges? Reduced raisin compote. Fiercely intense and strong. Figs. With water it rounds off somewhat. Sulphur arrives in the compact aftertaste (not of the disturbing kind). Big, intense resinous one.
Oliver KlimekNose: Very rich, Christmas pudding, dried figs, pipe tobacco - Palate: Dry and a bit sweet, coffee, toffee, sultanas - Finish: Long and dry - Overall: Heavily sherried with quite some tannins, but not really bitter. A great and very complex single malt. Because of the mothballing of Glendronach in 1996, in a few years time new batches will be older than 15 years. Keep an eye on it!
