Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 2005

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.57 points

  1. BlueFire scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Fudge, burnt toffee, condensed milk, bubblegum, young, caramel, brown sugar, coconut.
    Fruity, but quite light, I found it a bit thin and simple, chewy texture and ok balance but finish is a bit meh.

  2. Mr.Wong scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Lovely Glendronach. Soft nose but interesting palate. The typical PX aromas are more notable on palate than in nose. Finish is long, winey and woody.
    • Nose
      Oaky, woody, slight sherry, honey, melon, nutty
    • Taste
      sherry, dried figs, winey
    • Finish
      sherry, winey, dark chocolate, strong alcohol

  3. dramspotter scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    It doesn't seem that promising on the nose, somewhat ordinary but this delivers in the palate and especially the finish a very rich sherry experience
    • Nose
      81 81
      toffee apples, floor polish
    • Taste
      83 83
      chewy sultanas, a little tannic
    • Finish
      87 87
      medium; takes a bit to get up to a sustained note but rich; not overly sweet and no nastier elements like woodiness or drying coming in
