  1. dRambo scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    I really like it very much - put a lot of emphasis on the standard range - bring along its own profile - I think the level of prizes of € 200-220 is just right - the Parli and Allardice are already very good.
    • Nose
      Full and voluminous, red wine with grape seeds and influence of moist wood, sour red berries, plum jam, oranges TicTac, green tea, geranium leaves, jasmine flowers, beeswax and a hint of anise, very round and oily - creamy, buttery nose - charming, pure and clearly, it changes in waves - always on the move
    • Taste
      Wood, leather, tobacco, ginger, mint and red berries - typical GD profile - compared to Parliament - rather more sweet and especially sour fruit as much leather and sweetness, very well balanced, nice texture, it looks cleaner, has more elegance without his profile of sherrybo, to leave be - the alcohol content is perfect for me - a very delicate tickling is still felt when chewing - which then goes over in chocolate with rum raisins and espresso
    • Finish
      Warming, tingling, very long, first the fruit dissolves, then it stays chocolaty with nuts for a long time to pour out in a fine creamy wood note - the finish is outstanding

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Maybe not as complex as I'd hoped, but certainly a tasty, fairly balanced sherry-matured whisky.
    • Nose
      Fresh plum juice and a whiff of alcohol, but also sweet and with a whisper of a dunnage warehouse and damp wood. Overall a surprising amount of fresh red fruits, mainly strawberries and raspberries. Not overtly sherried, yet rather balanced.
    • Taste
      Medium creamy mouthfeel, pretty decent indeed. Some milk chocolate, latte macchiato, pralines and macadamia nuts. A hint of struck matches, while the fruit flavours stay in the background. Finally a whiff of cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Lingering coffee notes, with a spicy touch.

  3. Goethe scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Well this is the most intensive GlenDronach of the Danish releases. In my opinion it's hard to compare it with the GlenDronach Parliament 21 or the Allardice. Sure you got 25 years of sherry cask maturation (not knowing what kind of casks) comming along with a GlenDronach, therefore this lad is very delicious. Although when you are used to this Parliament, Allardice, Revival or 12 year old (yes, the 2013 versions) fellows this kind of sherry mixture/maturation is kind of slaying the GlenDronach. Don't get me wrong, I like this fellow but for me the wine cellar/sulphur element on the nose is dividing me from the experience of having a great old GlenDronach 25.Concerning price/performance ratio: 7/10
    • Nose
      Wine cellar (moldy, wet, nutty, earthy and some oak punch), chocolate, dried dark grapes, marzipan, raisins, plums, some sulphur, fermented berries, dark fruits, overripe blood oranges.
    • Taste
      Dark dried fruits, spicy oak, hints of cinnamon, chocolate, nuts, berries, plums, overripe blood orange, cloves, leather.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Dark chocolate, cloves, nutmeg, leather and some espresso.

  4. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    On the verge of reaching 90 points, however, it lacks the impact I would have expected from a Glendronach with this presentation (age, ABV, etc.). Regardless though, it is quite complex and superbly balanced against just being “sherry overcoat”. The price is a different question, but I left that out of my review and score.
    • Nose
      Immediately quite vinaceous. Oranges, grapes, and plums. Associations of naphthalene and paint thinner. Interesting start for sure! With some air this oddness turns into what I expected from an old sherried Glendronach: roasted hazelnuts and honey-glazed oak. At this point the maturity of the spirit is balanced nicely against the cask itself.
    • Taste
      Good clean arrival of juicy figs and dates. Tons of caramelized sugar and dark chocolate. Dewey forest berries, walnut oil, and even some chili. Reminiscence of Glendronach’s greatness coupled with sherry aromas I have found in old Benrinnes and Strathislas.
    • Finish
      Medium. Sweet and mildly tannic, with herbal honey and over-brewed green tea.

  8. Falnor scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Boogieman did his anual tasting in november 2017. This time with this great Glendronach 25. Still the price and hype told an other story the dram did. Good, but not as deep as many single cask CS versions of Glendronach do for me.
