Glendronach 1972/2011 Cask 712

by Oliver Klimek on May 13, 2012

Sherry Butt – 49.9%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark mahogany
Nose: Prunes, rum soaked Christmas puddding, orange marmalade, hints of pipe tobacco, dark chocolate, a mix of mild spices.
Palate: Prunes, dates, dried figs and apricots, cassis, dark chocolate, espresso, cinnamon, hints of cardamom and nutmeg.
Finish: Very long, fruity and slightly spicy with just a hint of smoke.
Overall: Outstanding. Not too much wood, not too much spice, just enormously rich and complex yet full of elegance.

Rating: 93/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Tasted blind for the Malt Manics Awards 2011, re-tasted for notes.
