GlenDronach 14 Year Old Marsala Cask Finish Review

Glendronach I really like sweet whiskies, so a Glendronach finished in a Marsala cask sounds right up my street

It's got all those notes i wanted on the nose, sweet, fruity, chocolate, delicious and then the palate hits and it's HUGE, powerful almost overbearing. This needs water to tame the palate but not the nose, so the nose becomes more fragile and the palate becomes tasty, just not enough balance between the two for me, but it's certainly a dram i'd recommend you try.

This seems to be sold out everywhere, but hunt around and you may find one.

Thanks to GlenDronach for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

This is interesting, easily described as sweet and sour, a gentle fruity, sugary sweetness, then a spicy sour citrus note, really intriguing, menthol notes crop up along with a hint of dark chocolate also. Keeps changing in the glass as it airs, hints of BBQ charred fruits too, pineapple and banana especially.

Palate

Huge on the palate this is unrelenting, lots of bitter dark chocolate and berry fruitiness, menthol and bbq charred fruits, tangy, fruity, delicious

Finish

Huge ongoing
