  3. Issie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Pine needles, resin, earth, very dark honey, leather, dried fruit, a little dusty, after some time blackberries and strawberries, very slight hints of sulfur (matches), spices and others. Nutmeg, wood, I smell a little bit of green ... any grass
    • Taste
      Honey, blackberries, strawberries, grasses, wood, lime, lemon, coffee, a little pepper

  4. Igitor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nice complex on the nose. The sherry gets through well, but doesn't push everything down. You don't notice the alcohol.

    Overall, a very good impression, even if I prefer to treat myself to something else for the price
    • Nose
      90 90
      Raisins, toffee, light leather, banana chips, nectarine and honey
    • Taste
      89 89
      Light wheat, lots of leather, chocolate and fruits. But you should definitely take bigger sips
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium length finish. Just a little bitterness.

  5. LeChiffre scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Powerful Glendronach I would have rated much younger. No Sherry Monster superimposed on the distillery character. Interesting mix of sweet-sour fruitiness and spice. Tasty, but for the price no big bottle candidate.
    • Nose
      88 88
      fruity; rather lighter fruits; clear note of tangerines and oranges; raisins; some herbal honey; delicate oak flavoring; altogether light sweet and sour fruit aroma; wins with a little water and time in the glass
    • Taste
      87 87
      sweet and spicy with a slight pungency; raisins; Orange notes; Chocolate; spicy oak; remove some leather
    • Finish
      88 88
      Dried fruit; institutions; dark chocolate; delicate oak flavor

  6. pianoman scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      A touch of glue. Yellow plums, light raisins, tangerines. Fresh sawn tree trunks. Orange soda. Dry stone wall.
    • Taste
      Nectarines. Effervescent powder. Custard, a touch of raspberry syrup. Orange Softcakes.

  9. Joschbert scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Somewhat impetuous Glendronach with rather bright sweet and sour fruit notes and distinct bitterness. Needs water.

    After a few weeks of oxidation, it seems a bit rounder and more pleasing to me. In the nose are beautiful chocolate notes and leather notes added. Amazingly dry for a PX barrel.
    (Sample by ArPeJa)
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sour fruit compote. Rather bright fruits. The alcohol stands out easily, but can be tamed well with water. then it gets creamier. Herbal notes, ginger and black tea. Some honey.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Starts with distinct sharpness, certainly also from the alcohol, reminds as in the nose of ginger. Glendronach-typical leathery and slightly dusty notes briefly flash through. Then follows a dry cargo of herbs (sage) and pine needles.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Tart oak, a lot of caramel.
      Long with light toasted notes and dried apricots and cinnamon.
