Glendronach 15 Year Old Moscatel Finish

Let’s stick with the Wood Finishes from GlenDronach a little longer. Again one that saw the light of day in August 2010, this is a 15 Year Old that was finished on a Moscatel sherry cask. Only a few weeks ago, I had a Tullibardine on Moscatel which I found very pleasing.

The nose is surprisingly sourish. Freshly squeezed lemon, tangerines, apple sauce and rhubarb jam. This reminds me of the rhubarb stems I used to pluck out of my father-in-law’s garden. There is also some rosewater. Wonderful combination.

On the palate it’s creamy and very fruity: litchis on syrup, tangerines and rhubarb jam again. Very sweet, very fruity, simply very good. I like this.

The finish is sweet, long and leaves your mouth dry.

Contrary to my expectations, I like this one even better than the Sauternes. A real summer dram!


GlenDronach 15 yo Moscatel (46%, OB 2010)

This sample was remarkably hazy. Nose: rather citric. Fruity but in a vibrant, slightly sourish way. Think of rhubarb. Stewed fruits. Apple compote. Yellow raisins. Apple crumble with whipped cream. Old roses.

Mouth: more or less the same combo of garden fruits and brown sugar. Cinnamon. Marmalade. Some peach.

Finish: grows more woody, malty and spicy. Nice evolution.

Well made, sweet, fruity and very zippy.

zippy indeed! ;) slainte!


Nose: Sweet fruits in syrup, stewed apricots, and dried figs, and some dates, all engulfed in vanilla custard. some wet wood notes as well. A real “Tu bishvat” dram. delicious.

Palate : Sweet fruity melange with spice(cinnamon, cloves), vanilla seeds, crisp. Oily mouth feel , really mouth coating feeling, warm and engulfing.

Finish : Spicy, sweet, some wood and ending on sweet chocolate fudge.

Bottom line:

Yummy, sweet, even better than the Sauternes. I like this one a lot.
