Review #65 - Glendronach 18 Allardice
Nose: Figs and dates. Bovril. Hazelnuts. Cocoa. Light molasses.
Palate: Christmas cake. Rum. Milk chocolate. Allspice.
Finish: Medium in length. Blackcurrants. Clotted Cream. Resinous wood. Black tea. Cocoa powder.
Verdict: Pretty complex. All the sherry notes are there, but it's balanced by wood and the malt as well. A fantastic dram. I wish it had just a little something more going on.
Would I buy this: I would! I wish it were a bit cheaper here in the US, though.
Would I order this in a bar: Definitely, if I wanted a nice sherried dram.
Would I drink this if someone gave me a glass: Please, and thank you!
