A drop that had to wait almost three years for me to open it. But now there was an event that I wanted to reward myself for. So I looked for my The GlenDronach Parliament 21 yo from my stash and allowed this old Highland speciality with 48% to find its way into my nosing glass.
A really nice and intense blend, of plums and sultanas, of light walnut notes, violets and spices. They caress the nose. Later, the scent reminds of Christmas pastries.
The taste of GelnDronach is wonderfully intense and round. The sherry is found again, as are the plums and the walnuts. There are also tones of bitter chocolate, a little orange and cinnamon. This is more fun with every sip.
The finish is just as beautiful as the taste. It lasts a long time and is already warm. At the same time, it leaves a tasty spiciness in the mouth.
With its 21 years, Parliament is not a drop for every day, but for nice occasions. It achieved 94/100 points on my scale.
