  4. 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.

    • Nose

      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.

  6. Totoro scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Restrained cask influence, with the spirit singing loudly. Not the opulent experience you may expect from an ex-PX-matured GD; instead it's pretty clean and chiseled. If you liked the NAS cask strength OBs but would have liked more age, this is for you. Counterintuitive, but very good.
    • Nose
      Fruity and floral, but also weighty and weirdly mineralic. Graphite, brine, and sultanas. Nutty and juicy. Love how the spirit shines through. With time, coffee notes appear.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity attack, with grape and caramel running in tandem. Powerful but potable at cask strength. Water opens it up nicely as everything becomes juicier and more (American) oak comes out. Again, really close to the distillate.
    • Finish
      Good length, with some crisp oak, and fresh, zesty fruit.

  7. The_Independent scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    A wonderful Glendronach, which stands out clearly from the dark "sherry monsters". Complex, interesting and dangerous "tasty"!
    • Nose
      91 91
      Amazing fruity and juicy, blood oranges, sweet orange pulp, some lime zest, grapes, with time I smell cherry, marzipan stuffed with plum jam, stollen, toffee and a herbaceous oak flavor. Very complex and interesting, takes a nice development in the glass - but no "dark" sherry bomb.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Very voluminous and strong, very sweet and creamy, rum raisins, orange peel, honey, vanilla cream, some cocoa powder, milk chocolate, light oak spice and a hint of cinnamon, no bitterness.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium to long finish, characterized by chocolate, sweet dried fruit - raisins and orange peel as well as creamy latte macchiato.

  10. Nolloff scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    weird bitter/chemical off-notes, alcohol not well integrated after 20+ years maturation ... If Glendronach would have had to build a reputation on such casks it would be difficult to sell this for 100 Euro these days. I opened 1993 cask 23 to check if something is wrong with my palate but found it to be working quite normally.
