Note: Some damage and minor cellar bloom to one corner of the outer carton. Bottle in excellent condition with minor cellar bloom.A trophy Glendronach from another era, bottled especially for French retailer, LMDW (La Maison du Whisky). Massive praise from the Malt Maniacs who awarded it Supreme Winner (Ultra Premium) in the Malt Maniac Awards for 2012. Certainly one of the all-time great Oloroso sherry matured Glendronach's from recent decades. Distilled in 1972 and bottled in 2012. 426 bottles. One only to sell. We have bottle no.418. Other reviews... Colour: deep amber. Nose: wham! An unbeatable combination of very old Sauternes, raisins, pipe tobacco, Demarara rum, prunes and, well, Christmas cake... That was just the first layer, because many tinier aromas are well alive underneath it, including cured ham, cigars, truffle, leather polish, humus and chocolate. Ultra-classic top-notch sherry maturing without the slightest flaw. After fifteen minutes: more pleasantly heady notes of big black raisins (and maybe dried goji berries). Mouth: powerful and hugely concentrated, starting both spicy and fruity (dried). It's appropriately extremely Christmassy, in fact. Chocolate, cloves, juniper berries, raisins, prunes, caraway seeds, dates, cardamom… It's all fantastic and strikingly fresh and heavy at the same time. High concentration. Finish: very long, with more coffee this time as well as touches of kirsch. Cloves again in the aftertaste, and big time. Comments: simply another wonder from Scotland's emblematic vintage. Vintage effects are controversial in whisky but should they exist, I think 1972 was to Scotch was 1959 was to French wine. 92 points - Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com
