General description

It's a volatile dram. Powerful and delicious, but also too young and too unbalanced. It's disturbing, but not bad at all. Would be great after another few years in the cask...

Nose

Such a youngster and such a voluminous nose! Woody, malty, nutty, with little vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, oranges and melon. The nuts are rather walnuts. Mild sweetness comes from the malt.

Palate

Here it's not that good, low complexity and a bit cheeky. Alcohol too much popping out and a metallic side note, but also very nice and intense nut and malt notes and something bittersweet like anise or liquorice. Also still quite sweet and the mouthfeel, at first watery, gets much more oily with some time.

Finish

Oaky long finish, I could say "a lot of pepper", but it's the alcohol sting that really annoys here a bit. Sweet milkchocolate in the end.

General description

The nose took me by surprise with notes of raisins, bread pudding, vanilla, and sherry. Smoother than expected with some orange and almonds but not as complex as its older brothers. Slight bitter chocolate on an otherwise lacking finish. Fairly good but the finish is not up to par with other Glendronach bottlings.
