I tried the first batch of this Cask Strength GlenDronach at a single cask tasting with Stewart Buchanan about a year ago. By now, even Batch 03 is available, but I have yet to try Batch 02.

On the creamy nose I get butterscotch and oranges. Overripe banana and raisins, coconut and pancake batter. Fairly sweet, but not as fruity as Batch 01 as far as I can remember. Hint of toasted oak and tobacco. Freshly polished leather. Very rich, but not juicy (which I did have with the first batch).

On the palate it is very creamy with the emphasis on the spices (cloves, ginger, aniseed) and some orange zest. Hint of honey. Mildly drying. A bit of choclate with a hint of nuts.

De finish is even more spicy and fairly long. Tannins at the death.

Well, for 65 EUR this GlenDronach Cask Strength is yours and that is a fair price.
