TASTING NOTES
BY CRAIG MILLS (NICKOLLS & PERKS)

NOSE:
Opens with rich ginger cake, chocolate bitters, Seville orange marmalade and cinnamon rolls along with stewed black fruits. Plenty of inviting Sherry wood character (think aromatic nut brittle and sherry soaked tiramisu sponge), hints of treacle tart and fragrant tobacco in the mix too.

PALATE:
A big delivery of chocolate fudge cake, aromatic sweet Sherry wood, toasted hazelnuts, plum pudding and lots of spice mid palate (clove & nutmeg). A burst of orange rind follows and chewy treacle toffee on a warming yet remarkably elegant body for its abv.

FINISH:
Stem ginger, more chocolate (Snicker bars?) and dark honeycomb. Treacle nut brittle, lasting aromatic spices and finishing firm and dry with late caramelised walnut and banana bread.

COMMENTS: 
Your only problem is deciding if you prefer this with or without water. Either way we are not just saying this because it has our name on it but this is a classic GlenDronach, well balanced and complex and dangerously moreish!
