GlenDronach Virgin Oak 14

Country: Scotland
Region: Highlands
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 46%
Score: 88 points

This single malt was finished in virgin oak casks, and that gives it a spicy and dry nose with notes of vanilla, allspice, pencil shavings and honey. The taste is thick and chewy, peppery and intense, and fades slowly to reveal black licorice and vanilla. The finish is short and dry, but a splash of water opens this dram up nicely and lengthens the finish while adding some oak notes to the taste.
