- Appearance : vibrant orangey copper.
- Nose : firm, slender. A blend of dark chocolate, bitter orange zest, fresh walnut and heady florals (mimosa, old rose), the initial nose shows incredible richness. Allowed to breathe, it nobly becomes spicy (black pepper, nutmeg, clove), almost medicinal (tiger balm, iodine solution). Then, slowly but surely, its tertiary register appears, notably with notes of dried fruit, marmalade, slightly damp earth and tobacco.
- Palate : stately, distinguished. The attack on the palate immediately takes the upper hand, touching the top of ancient trees (Cypress, chestnut, oak). With rare elegance, the mid- palate is balsamic (Xeres vinegar), honeyed (lime, pine tree) and empyreumatic (spice bread). The end of the palate is home to the tones of a radiant autumn (chestnut, quince jelly). From this very suggestive gustatory palette comes the feeling of fullness and tranquillity.
- Overall : long, firm. Chocolatey (cocoa bean), it is also subtly earthy and spicy (pepper, cinnamon, candied ginger). In this sense, it wonderfully embodies the style of the finest Glendronachs. With time, it develops into notes of bourbon vanilla and fresh walnut. The retro-nasal olfaction is floral (iris, lily) and spicy (star anise), whilst the empty glass focuses on the medicinal register (balm, mustard poultice) of this bottling.
- The brand
Glendronach means “valley of the brambles” in Gaelic. Located near the town of Huntley in the east of Speyside, this distillery uses traditional production methods (malting that includes partial use of a peat-fired kiln and stills heated by ‘direct firing’), which largely explains its powerful character and the strong personality of its single malt. It is always a very rich malt, with this demonstrated best in its sherry cask bottlings which reveal a perfect balance of sherry, malted barley and (red) fruit notes. Find out more
