  1. tribe scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Very spicy and complex start. Smells amazingly fruity.
    Remains in the mouth for a long time. Raisins and Christmas spices interplay. Nose and taste go hand in hand. Blast. Urgent buy recommendation. Almost smoky taste of fine wood. Super balanced and gets even better with every sip. Now give the barrel one more point. Outstanding

    A small sample fills an entire room with an ingenious scent of malt ...

    Glendronach Cask 698, 1993 (25yo). Numbers-only rating at the distillery in Juy 2018. Huge sherry influence. 3.6/86

    Tried this one from a bottle my friend brought back from his trip to Glendronach in 2018, big thanks to him for letting me try this unobtainable old Glendronach!

    Color: Dark Amber

    Nose: Tiny bit of sulphur stands out but in the back it has some massive vanilla and chocolate fudge along with orange oils, lemon paste, earth, tea tannins, sultanas, cloves, fresh cut grass, lush silky caramels, new leather and roasted peanuts

    Taste: Very dry at first with some building sweetness, orange peel, lemon curd, cinnamon raisin toast, jammy raisins, burnt sugars, black tea, light paprika, vanilla bean, mace, more earthy and leathery notes, no sulphur showing up as big here, lots of gingerbread and soft tobacco leaf

    Finish: Medium to Long with jammy raisins, tobacco, sea salt, vanilla essence and toasted sweet buns

    Overall a very fun and well balanced Glendronach, heck its probably the best Glendronach I've had in a very long time! The nose is a bit sulphured at first but past that everything is fantastic, a great palate and a solid finish makes this one a very textbook (in a good way) sherry casked Speyside in my books but doesn't really do anything crazy (especially as it's mouthfeel isn't as chewy and oily as I would've liked) and punches just right in its weight class. A nice dram that I quite enjoyed on a cozy Christmas Eve!
