  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Glendronach, bottled by SMWS after 12 years of aging in an ex-bourbon barrel. This bottling, "Furtive Scone Pesterer" is bottled at cask strength, with no coloring or filtering. Let's see how it is.

  • Nose:

    Honey, candy corn, fresh baked cake, apples and pears. Really sweet, really bread-y which is surprising for GlenDronach. Reminds me a lot of a Nevis. Ethanol is nicely in check.

  • Taste:

    Thick, sweet, but a bit hot. Toffee, bread pudding, sweet caramel and some light fruit. Mostly vanilla, some clove, nice bourbon barrel character here. Heat dies down over time which is greatly appreciated.

  • Finish:

    Medium to long in duration, heat is more mild than the palate. Big sweet dessert from start to finish - if I had to enunciate what I thought bourbon barrel cake would be like, it would be this.

  • Overall:

    This is pretty nice, which sort of surprised me. I thought these stats may be problematic, but I was proven wrong. Nice work, SMWS.

  • Score:

    6
