Colour: Purplish copper. Stunning.
Nose: Dried muscatelles, dark chocolate – the kind of dusty cocoa scent you get from opening a block of 70 or 80% cocoa dark chocolate.
Palate: It slides into the mouth and the rich sherry flavours start to dance around your mouth. Spices abound; oily mouthfeel to start but then dries quickly as the flavours develop.
Finish: Satisfyingly very long. Sweet sherry notes, balanced by subtle cigar box flavours. Long tingle, predominantly at the front half of the palate.
Comments: Stunning; syrupy and chewy. An outstanding whisky, another amazing expression from Glendronach. This one really blew the Glenglassaugh Evolution I just tasted completely out of the water. I could drink this one all night!
