Glendronach Cask Strength Batch 5.

Nose: astringent, so a little drier and less sweet than Batch 4. The red fruit is there and you can feel: strawberry, cherry, black cherry, red apple. Vanilla and very sweet licorice, sweetened cocoa. It’s similar to a good rum.

Taste: fresh and sweet mouth, then spices velvety on the tongue. Red fruit in large amount, strawberry, cherry, plum. Sweet cocoa and coffee beans. Slight astringency of black pepper with the wood. The coffee increases with time.

Finale: spices, red fruit, coffee and cocoa.

Comment: solid, well-made, good selection of casks.
