Glendronach - 15yr Revival
Snifter, splash of water, bottle just opened
A very sweet very inviting nose leads to a strong up-front sherry/raisin-flavored body, that finishes with a uniquely long-lasting woody finish with a very nice tingly mouthfeel, which leaves behind it a chocolate aftertaste.
The nose on this whisky is a new favorite of mine. The main theme here is sherry and raisins with subtle chocolate, toffee, and wood notes.
Nose-24: Strong raisins, sherry, brown sugar, subtle milk-chocolate, honey
Body-: Thick, syrupy
Palate-21: Strong sherry and raisins, barley, toffee
Finish-22: Long warming tingly oak, sherry, raisins, and molasses. Quite some time after the sip, some cocoa notes linger.
Balance-23: Take your time with this scotch. Everything seems to last just a little bit longer to develop. Just let the flavors happen...
Overall-90: Overall, this scotch is a new favorite. Typically, the Islays appeal to me most, but I like this one for completely different reasons.
