I bought this bottle to my friend for its birthday. I knew that he would like to cracked it open the same night so we can taste it together and I didn't get disappointed. We took one third of the bottled out that night. I bought it without having ever tasted a GlenDronach. The Olorroso sherry matured 15 years old made be believe that it would look like the HP18, which I really like.
Nose: Quite complex with nutty notes, spices, rubber, toffee and vanilla. The rubber makes it a bit odd, but the complexity makes it very enjoyable.
Mouth: The nuts, spices and toffee follows with some coffee and chocolate notes.
Finale: medium to long. shorter than I expected.
The whisky is good, but it is far from the sherry monster branding of HP18. It is very complex on the nose, which is cool, but the finale is a bit disappointing.
