General description

don't get me wrong - I like this whiskey, but it's not even nearly as smooth, as its 12 years old brother. the peaty nose is nice, but it doesn't cover up, that it would have needed a few more years.

Delightful aroma of ripe goosberries dusted with cinnamon sugar combines with a contrasting crisp citrus twist

Palate

Oak spices and floral heather honey develop to rosechips and barley sugar

A unique marriage if crisp fruit and barley laden highland characteristics surrounded by gentle peat smoke

General description

smooth whisky the subtle level of peat really compliments the Sherry character of this whisky. a wonderfully whisky, just don't expect an islay. it's a different kind of peat, but in a good way.

General description

Let this one rest for a bit, it improves in the glass. And I hope Glendronach will let it rest a bit longer in their PX an Oloroso casks as well, so that further matured releases will have more layers of sherry and more character. It's definitely not bad, it's like a first okay beta version of Glendronach Peat.

Nose

The peat is obvious, it's clearly not just lightly peated. Custard with raisins, an empty coffee cup, lemongrass and some light red fruit - raspberry, strawberry.

Palate

Harsh and sharp at first, but that disappears after a while in the glass. Or after the first two sips, I'm not sure. Peat again, bitter pineapple and buttered nuts. I expected medium to heavy sherry with some light peat, but it's the other way around - medium peat with (very) light sherry notes.

Finish

Short to medium finish, but not very exciting. Notes of pineapple core and smoked oak linger on for a bit and leave a dryish bitterness.
