Nose: Malty, nutty notes. It’s also a tad grassier, with walnut skins and apple peelings. Picks up steam after a few minutes, with beautiful whiffs of wet earth and just hints of old roses. Keeps developing for a long time, more and more on roses and Turkish delights, which was unexpected.
Palate: Curiously ‘younger’ than the 15 with a tad more berry fruit. There's orange here too with some faint Christmas spice.
Finish: Medium long, on oak-matured raspberry.
Overall: Once again, a very good whisky from Glendronach.
