William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Sweet buttery toffee and dark chocolate raisins, some distant musty cigar box smoke.

Taste: Delicious dark sherried fruit and some dark Muscovado sugar sweet toffee leads the charge, followed by some lovely mature oak spice, a touch of honeyed zesty lemon and a little ginger hanging around in the background

Finish: Longish, the lovely dark sherried fruit fades leaving some lovely some lovely lingering mature oak.

Comment: Another very enjoyable sherried dram from the GlenDronach, a good balance of mature oak, sherry and the GlenDronach spirit.

SMW Score 87/100
