This is a 14 year Glendronach Single Cask matured in a PX Sherry Puncheon and bottled at 55.5% ABV.
Nose: Strawberries and graham crackers at first followed by peppermint, tobacco, cocoa powder, caramel, and a bit of floral notes developing after a few minutes in the glass.
Palate: More malty here with the peppermint notes carrying through from the nose. Cocoa again with some caramelized bananas – less fruity overall than the nose however.
Finish: Dry and oaky with only a hint of sweetness from gingerbread notes.
Rating: 86/100 – Not quite as raisiny/fruity as some of its older PX single cask brothers, but good nonetheless.
Value for the money: I think I paid about €105 for this, and it’s not too bad a price for what you get.
