  1. Joschbert scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Great intensity and balance. A sherry bomb with wonderfully nutty and leathery notes. Is played throughout the mouth and offers a lot to discover. Does not need water.
    (Sample by ArPeJa)
    • Nose
      95 95
      Prunes, heavy sherry (more PX), sweet molasses and some acidity. No bit of alcohol. Discreet sulfur and a dusty oak spice with clear leather notes. Chocolate. Beautiful triad of dried fruit, nuts and balsamic.
    • Taste
      94 94
      Full and voluminous. A sweet surge of dried fruit and leather. Will be drier with sandalwood, coffee and walnuts.
    • Finish
      96 96
      Dark chocolate, orange peel, prunes with cinnamon. Very long. Slows down with roasted and tobacco notes.

  2. Othorion scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      90 90
      Plum jam, black tea, blackberries, oranges, cranberries, matches, a touch of marzipan, cocoa
    • Taste
      91 91
      Oily, creamy, sweet, wild berries with honey, blackberries, matches, dark chocolate, orange zest, good to enjoy without water, delicious!
    • Finish
      90 90
      Drying, warming, more sweet honey, now with a few walnuts, a hint of nutmeg, dark chocolate and wild berries! Long

  3. dRambo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    delicious - for what he can me but too expensive for a large bottle - even if it seems quite cheap in comparison to other much more expensive Dronach SC
    • Nose
      crystalline citrus / orange / teen and red groats, ground leather, grated chocolate very gentle Sherrynase for a Dronach - goes almost Grandeur - very delicious but in the price range I am so smooth already a bit too mild / weak - complain at a high level
    • Taste
      Delicious subtle sulfur on red berry purée, ground leather, sourish dark chocolate, quite dry, astringent, orange peel, lilac blossoms, citrus scents - highly complex dark sherry cascades - very easy to chew, exciting, lively

      very good without water on the palate, almost a touch too mild
    • Finish
      dry, berry, chocolate - intense woody notes, herbaceous, tobacco, old, yummy musty - very smooth

    sadly there is a sulphorous note at the beginning. benefits from water even it's low abv for a SC

  7. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Glendronach 1993 WID: 87894
    Abv. 51.7%, Sherry Butt, 24 years
    Nose: for a Dronach a very fruity nose, boiled berries, cranberries, blueberries, raspberries, wine gum, orange chocolate, not as exciting as other GD SC, but very round and consistent
    Taste: light sulfur, but do not disturb, more fruit and dark berries, men's chocolate, very tasty and invites you to take a big swig (unfortunately at the price)
    Departure: long and balanced, less tasty than the nose and palate, but nicely spicy without becoming bitter
    Conclusion: Very tasty and above all tasty malt, but no typical GD SC. I like it, but for 245 my finger does not twitch at all.
