The nose is a full on sherry assault with candied fruit and maybe even a bit of cinnamon.  The palate kicks in very sweet.  It dissipates a bit, but it's still pretty sweet.  Malt kicks in at the late palate and, really, in the finish. 

This is too sweet for my tastes neat but water does wonders for it, bringing out the malty flavor that's hinted at in the finish, and giving it a nice balance.  Good stuff!

When you were a kid and you smelled your entire bag of Halloween candy, remember that smell? That's this. Mixed sweets wafting through wrappers. And yeah, sherry, toffee, etc.

 

Oh, hiya sherried palate, how ya doin? Kinda sweet today, aren't we? Dried cherries with the more tart dried fruits. Added zing into the finish.  Slow fade, chocolate-toffee aspects lingering, coffee and cream sometimes.

 

I always seem to like these Glendronach PX puncheon dealios, but I have yet to truly love one. There's a syrupy quality in the nose and finish that's tasty, but approaching cloying… I think it's the PX sherry that does that for me, as that's a type of sherry that I find too sweet and overpowering on its own.

 

But this is a great single malt.

N: Starts off with dry sherry, coffee notes.  Opens up after a bit with some honey and butter and sweet caramel notes.

P: Quite sweet on the palate with port-like ripe fruit notes.   Moderatly sherried.

F: Buttered vegetables.  B/B+

n: figs soaked in black cherry juice. Nice dark chocolate and walnuts, very dense and deep. Dirt-walled basement in spring.
 
t: tobacco leaf with Luxardo cherries. More dark chocolate and turns oaky and dry in the midpalatte. Nice element of butterscotch and scalded red berry jam. Raisinbread dough sweetness comes into play in the finish. Very nice and tasty!
