  • Excerpt: Indeed I’m not a huge fan of this rather chancy dram (in my opinion) but I guess the market needs variety. But it’s not a bad whisky at all, of course not.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, winey goodness. Thick syrupy port notes, mixed with vanilla and nougat. Theres slight clove, oak, cinnamon, some brown sugar but mostly, this is a wine fiesta. and I love it.

  • Taste:

    Sort of thin mouthfeel - I wish I could try this at cask strength. Sweet, port forward like no tomorrow. No heat. Its all toffee, port, some odd sweet funk and one more jammy fruit bash.

  • Finish:

    Medium and gentle - no heat at all. Sweet, although not as sweet as the palate and that nice underlying GlenDronach character gets to show a little here.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is damn delicious. Im not sure I could pay the $85-$100 that this goes for here in the states but its very tempting. I like the flavors, the balance, the heat and despite it being a bit thin, I can appreciate the mouthfeel given the proof its at. This at cask strength would be bonkers, I think. Im going to give this dram a 7 - I like it a whole lot.

  • Score:

    7
