GlenDronach Revival 15yr
The nose is loaded with boozy spice cake, honey, plums and maple syrup, followed by orange marmalade, cloves, roasted nuts and brown butter cookies. The palate confirms all these initial aromas of spices and fruits with honeyed notes, golden raisins and leather, complimented by nutmeg liquorice, and more fruitcake flavors. The finish brings back in the sweet burnt brown sugar, which then dries out into a nutty and spicy finish of hazelnuts, ginger, clove and allspice. This malt is a dessert on its own in a glass, but does compliment chocolate and cheese quite nicely after dinner. Don’t be afraid to throw it next to a cigar either.
