Official Tasting Notes - GlenDronach 1972 Cask #706
Appearance: Dark mahogany with a crimson glow.
Nose: Rich sour plums and dark chocolate backed by a nutty tobacco note and a hint of clove oil.
Palate: Sherried Christmas cake sweetened with a dusting of Muscovado sugar and mixed candied peel. A cigar box spice note and a classic European oak influence are infused through the robust, traditional palate.
