Another GlenDronach winner

If you love sherry...

The 18yr old in the GlenDronach range is very nice. Hard to keep up with the 21 (Parliament) but it does a good job. A bit lighter in terms of palate but still rich and thick. I am torn about whether i like this or the 21 better. will do a side by side taste test soon and post results.

Appearance: Bright deep gold with a tawny centre.
Nose:  Sweet aromatics of fudge and muscovado sugar. Fruit compote and glacier morello cherries provide added complexity.
Palate: Rich dark and seductive. Remarkable flavours of stewed fruits and all-spice marry together with classical aged Oloroso and toasted walnut bread and chocolate orange.

A very complex and long dram that is a great value if you can find it.
