The 18 year old Allardice named after the founder James Allardice who made a name for GlenDronach through a rather unorthodox method of word of mouth.
After having no luck at a whiksy fair or some such occasion, he ran into some ladies of the night to whom he gave some whisky, their response was thoroughly positive and soon word spread of this heavily sherried highlander.
Nose: smoked ham, medium dark chocolate, spicy Christmas cake, ginger, fudge and some leather.
Pallet: immediately there is strong cocoa, toffee, some buttery brulee, darker chocolate than the nose and with time some plum.
Finish: caramel, sweet going sour into a tannin and tea finish
Mark neat – 8.4.
I'm afraid the title says it all, this whisky really lacks dimension, which i believe the 12 and especially the 15 have. Its decent, there is nothing wrong with it but i expected more.
