This third batch of the GlenDronach Cask Strength (no age statement) is also a vatting of oloroso and PX sherry casks. Let us give that a go. The previous two batches were quite to my liking. Batch 4 will arrive soon.

A creamy nose with mostly nuts and butterscotch. Loads of vanilla, but surprisingly little fruit. I do get some sultanas and coconut. Blood oranges in the background. Nice hint of tobacco as well. Candied ginger. I quite like this.

It is creamy on the palate and immediately very spicy: ginger, pepper, cloves and a hint of cinnamon. The nuts return, drenched in mild chocolate. Oranges become very big all of a sudden. A little zesty. Sweet and smooth honey. The oak speaks as well and makes it somewhat drying.

The finish is surprisingly long, dry and spicy. Very spicy!

The best of the three batches so far, without a doubt. Seen last for 59 EUR.
