Nosing: Vanilla Cinnamon Sweet Blackberry Barley Peat Smoke

Taste: Peat Smoke Floral Vanilla Melon

Finish: Peat Smoke Sweet Berries Oak

Comment: leat is absolutely not the dominant influence. It is an element, but is secondary to this whisky's sweet and floral themes. Even some fruit presence show up before the smoke stakes it's claim.

Peat is more prominent on the palate than this whisky's nose suggested might be the case. A smoky finish lingers as well. Still not overpowering by any stretch of the imagination, but one is not likely to expect that from The GlenDronach - even with "peated" on the label. Finish is soft, but long. Oak spiciness doesn't appear until very late.

A very satisfying crossover between typical offerings from The GlenDronach and peated whisky. Even sans the peat, this whisky is an enjoyable departure from the sherry-bomb standards that The GlenDronach is known for.

For peat alone, this whisky is a 3-star rating. For representation of The GlenDronach's usual distillery character, again 3 stars. But marry the two, and 4-stars is well-warranted.
