54.9% ABV

Aged For: NAS

Mashbill: 100% malted barley

Color: Rich Dark Copper

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

Nose: Caramel, thick sherry, coffee, raisins, citrus, oak, and strong alcohol.

Taste: The sherry becomes even more pronounced, the raisins, jam, dark chocolate, maple syrup, and white pepper.

Finish: Very warm, lasting with impressions of fruit, vanilla, orange peel, and ginger.

Thoughts: Another solid offering from Glendro. I still find the 18 to be my favorite, due to its combination of full bodied flavor and complexity, but I wasn’t able to experiment with water on this sample, so I’ll have to open another one up in the future and see how that changes things.

Score: 84 out of 100
