Glendronach Allardice Bottling Note:
An Oloroso sherry matured Glendronach, released under the new ownership of the distillery. Allardice is set to be a success.
Nose: Clean, focused sherry with a mix of classic notes to the fore; orangettes, praline, tangerine, bow rosin and a hint of struck-flint smokiness.
Taste: Quite bold on dry walnuts, well roasted coffee beans and treacle backed by the dark chocolate and orange rind notes from the nose.
Feel:Silky, rich and coating at 46%.
Finish: Quite long with touches of toasted oak, ginger, faint sultana and dry earth. Suggestions of green tea and anise flicker through the length.
