      Nosing:
      A delicate mix of ripe autumnal fruits - notably blackberries and red plums. Rich Oloroso sherry and candied orange segments. Spiced oatmeal biscuits and toasted oak fragrances bring excellent weight and balance
      Taste:
      Resolute flavours of fine Oloroso sherry and bitter chocolate sauce, which has been spread liberally over homemade plum pudding. This is all infused with fabulous spicy notes - cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Full bodied with smooth tannins
      Finish:
      Long and lingering

      Nosing: Cherry Sherry Dried Fruit

      Taste:
      Sherry Fig Dried Fruit Oak Caramel
      Finish:
      quite long and on the beggining very strong
      Comment:
      Well balanced, strong in taste, mouthfilling, 48% on tangue is quite delicate but a bit harsh when you swallow, so needs a bit of water, and with water the taste is not so deep.
      I definitely prefer 18 YO. I thought 21YO will have more development from PX casks.
      Don't get me wrong, it's a good dram of whisky, but for me not wothy actuall price, especially when we have 18 YO so much better and more affordable.

      Nosing: Sherry Raisin Honey Leather Orange and a hint of Dark Chocolate that I almost missed (detected through a whiff taken somewhat further away from the glass)

      Taste: Sherry Apple Nutmeg and an ever-so-slight bitterness that is reminiscent of Coffee , but is clearly a supporting undertone rather than attempting to play full-on harmony

      Finish: Sherry Sweet and Almonds at the end of a long finish that is true to this whisky's magnificent core

      Comment: The nose is the star of this whisky. Taste and finish are direct echoes of the elegant scents presented.

      The layers offered by The GlenDronach 21-year old are perfectly complementary at every turn. There is at no point a flavor or scent that departs from this whisky's profile. Every facet builds upon its predecessor.

      Stats: single malt whisky, 21 yo, Oloroso sherry casks + Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, 48,0% Vol, 0,7l

      Color: black sage honey meets mahogany

      Nose: Total sherry domination, a bit of pine tree and oak, no smoke. Aged in a mix of sherry casks, feels like you're actually entering a forest where those rooks reside. Fantastic smell, a touch of smoke too and rich feel of nutmeg, clovers and cocoa. If you decide to stay long enough, there's a strong feeling of vanilla overcoming your senses. If you ever used Madagascar vanilla essence, this is it. I could get high on this. :')

      Mouth: Cocoa and coffee with a touch of pepper, maybe like dark chili chocolate. Nicely bitter, allspice and nutmeg, spicy. Really strong and intense, passionate and wild, like a Christmas affair.

      Finish: abrupt but short explosion of nutmeg/allspice and sherry, rather peppery end with subtle smoke. A bit dry and a bitter tannin finish, notes of liquorice and wood. A bit of bitterness remains, as in life.



      Overall: Got it from fine-whisky.de for around $130. After adding a few drops of water, the scent becomes more complex, and the fresh-paint feel is replaced with subtle smoky company. And I had to take a bit of real chocolate afterwards, since the feel reminded me so much of it, and my palate wanted to feel complex aromas again. However, I do feel it's a kind of a love-or-hate whisky, maybe it'll be a bit over-oaked and menthol-like for some. It's complex, but it may be too complex, too over-oaked. Even though its name is far from politics, it could be connected, since it seems that it does divide people.

      A posh brother of 15yo, who didn't stay pre-med all his life. A type of whisky you hide when your friends come over.
