Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 10-year-old Forgue

22 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.41 points

  1. Beaty-Tang scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    Boring, somewhat youthful nose, nice taste and grand finish. He makes the points mainly by the latter. In sum, however, I can not understand why I should pay for this (converted to the 0.7 liter bottle) more than for the standard Glendronach 12 years (which is a class of its own).

    Glendronach Forgue 10 years about 65 € (1 liter bottle) = 45 €
    Glendronach 12 years about 40 €

  2. fnk scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    sherry, sweet in the aroma, harsh, prickly so small in taste, did not cause much delight, weak sherry malt.

  3. Jelle85 scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    Not a bad dram, decent length finish. But too peppery for me. Liking the regular 12 (way?) more.

    Blind sample. Fairly young, not a go-getter considered the absent of expressiveness and flavour intensity.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Intensity - 6
      Richness - 7

      Honey, appel pie, raisins and a touch of peach.
    • Taste
      65 65
      Intensity - 4
      Richness - 6
      Smooth, but quite a thin mouthfeel.

      Grainy, honey, biscuits, ginger and a touch of fruitiness.
    • Finish
      80 80
      5-10 seconds
      Long and very complex with tones of biscuits and pepper

  8. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    For a 10 year old very light sherry influance, less than the label promisses. Not a very bad dram but I expected more. A drop of water opened the nose some more. A 13 in a dozen dram to my opinion.
