As sherry-monsters go I don't think I can think of anything to beat Glendronach. Loved the soft gentleness of the 15yo, now 'upgrading' to the 18yo.

Nose is very heavy hitting with dark fruits, subtle spiciness and even a hint of burnt sugar. Definitely Christmas flavours, (even when tasted in May)

The palate continues with the fruit flavours but the spiciness is more apparent now. Definite woody astringency which is far more noticeable than in the 15yo, (but in a good way).

The finish is shorter and more bitter than I expected but doesn't detract from a decent full-powered sherry monster.

Did you like this more or less than the 15 "Revival?"

It's been a bit of time since I tried the 15 but from memory I think I just preferred it over the 18yo. Whilst the 18 is a superb whisky I think the 15yo just beats it in terms of price/value ratio. Close call though.
