Screaming sherry in the nose, with cumin, cloves, ketchup, and wisps of worcestershire sauce. The palate -- holy sh*t. It's strong and big!  And basically what the nose advertises, yummy, yet the very spicy aspects keep this a challenging single malt.  Finish is long.  There's slightly too much boozyness in the palate -- almost like someone poured a thimble of grain alcohol into my glass -- and without that this would be stellar.  But it's still great whisky!  Stuff like this usually costs a lot more, and I think it's a good buy even upwards of $100.  B+/A-

Nose is sweet cherry and strawberry.  Palate is hot! Finish stays hot and spicy.  Very Glendronachy.

This is classic Glendronach and some really great heavy sherry cask!  And finally a cask strength Glendronach!  This seems to have fixed the fleeting finish problem as well as it stayed with me for much longer than usual.  Love this and I will buy a couple of bottles.  SOmething more in this as well....like strawberry puree...Yummy.

Very delicious sherry monster.

Nose: Overwhelming.  I've never had to keep my nose so far.  Cherried old wood.

Palate: Sherry MONSTER.  This is like a more complex  Glendronach Revival, still sherry bombing but a soft pine woodiness runs with the sherry toward the finish.  More full than overwhelming.  Bravo
