Glendronach 41 yo 1971/2012 Cask 1247

by Oliver Klimek on January 2, 2013

PX sherry puncheon – 48.9%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark chestnut
Nose: Prunes, morello cherries, old leather, hints of balsamic vinegar, orange zest, cardamom and nutmeg.
Palate: Prunes, cherries, cassis, strong espresso with a drop of balsamic vinegar, cardamom and nutmeg.
Finish: Very long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: A quintessential sherry monster, old but not too woody, very rich with an emphasis on fruity flavours.

Rating: 91/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012 where it won a gold medal, re-tasted for notes.
