WhiskyFun.com Tasting Notes:
Nose: Wow, a lovely mix of walnut stain, bitter chocolate, verbena, wormwood and a kind of sooty herbal combo. Thick, almost tarry layers of green Chartreuse, herbal ointments, sour cherries, black coffee, molasses, damp pipe tobacco and freshly made strawberry jam. Excellent stuff.
With Water: Carnations, vase water, bouillon stock, old leather, camphor, mint syrup and Dundee cake. Still extremely silky and clean.
Mouth: Nicely textured arrival. All on Brazil nuts, chopped dates, coffee and walnut cake, mint leaf, Guinness cake and chewing tobacco. There’s also praline, bitter mints, some very old balsamic and bags of fruity cough medicines. Did I mention liquorice? Well, there’s a fair few chunks of top quality liquorice in there too.
With Water: Cherry cough drops, bitter herbal extracts (Unicum etc...), some rye spice and things like mustard powder, potpourri, rolling tobacco, some extremely bitter dark chocolate and freshly made espresso. Wonderfully bitter in this continuing herbal and cough medicine-accented way.
Finish: Good length and rather peppery, salty, herbal and gently earthy.
Comments: I’m not always a fan of the PX Glendronachs, I normally prefer the oloroso casks. However, this one is a sure fire winner. Clean, precise, quite complex and manages to tread a very fine, well-balanced line with these bitter herbal notes that manifest in all the right ways and never become too tiring or cloying.
