  1. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A relatively young cracker from one Glendronach’s best vintages. It is relatively dry and oak-forward, but also very expressive. The nose is eventful and benefits from air. One of many great Glendronachs for La Maison du Whisky!
    • Nose
      92 92
      Dry nuttiness upfront, with walnut peel and orange zest. Dark chocolate sauce, plum pie, and figs aplenty. Becomes more aromatic as time passes by – leather, freshly opened tobacco, and sour dough.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Dry-juicy arrival. The oak is pungent, with burned oranges, faint vanilla, and mint chocolate.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium. It is tannic, but not overly so, with espresso and mentholated black tea.

    tannic oak, more orange fruits than black grapes, fine spices aerating the nose, a little caramel or chocolate.
    • Nose
      intense wood, spices, then candied oranges, little dust, we are far enough from sherry
      the woody with some fresh herbs, tannic return, fruity and cocoa.

    A lovely GlenDronach!
    • Nose
      Mocha, dark chocolate, date, raisin, prune jam, toffee, tobacco, dark cherry, blackberry, almond paste and ginger. Very dark, heavy and treacly. Quite spicy as well and a tiny whiff of sulphur. Water makes the fruity notes come out better, also a softer touch like peach.
    • Taste
      Mocha, prune, dark cherry, rhubarb, raisin, date, leather, dark chocolate, cranberry and earth.
    • Finish
      Dark cherry, rhubarb, mocha, leather, raisin and earth.
