Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of cold dirty gas grill, pink lemonade. Palate is watery, lighter fluid, solvent, and goes down hill. Bitter and astringent finish.  Reading these notes it sounds like a D, but I gave it a C. You could drink it and not die.  
Nose of toffee and sherry, with grape Kool Aid.  The palate is really smooth (to use a descriptor I hate... but it is), with obvious sherry. quite fruity.  Raisins and spece.  Finish grows floral and lengthy... and then some soap emerges.  But this is still a great sipper, full and rich without being too strong and in-your-face.  B/B+ 
Nice spices on the nose and the spirity tingle is well integrated.  The palate dropps off a bit in flavor.  Not as many classic Glendronach notes and more of the tannins and bourbon barrel notes.  Creamy and nice and not bad in any respect.  B-    
N: Ethery with a hint of anise.
P: Light and spicy sherry, tastes flat...
F: ...and goes watery in the finish.
