Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 15-year-old Revival

31 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.18 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    looks thinner and less refined than its predecessor on me - both complexity and the depth of the flavors is rather superficial - much more complex than the 12er but the distance to the 18s is also very large
    • Nose
      84 84
      slightly dusty musty dried dates, orange oil and orange juice, later rather bitter orange marmalade - sweeter but also more bitter substances, laurel, dried figs, a lot of mint, a little camillan

      after the first sip also very clear plums, with a lot of time a fine fruity acid, with caramel, honey
    • Taste
      83 83
      Leather, dried dats and figs - which are a bit woody, herbal so come here. Pepper, chili, ginger, very sweet, a hint of plum, clearly orange, some tobacco and a delicate bitterness that reminds me of grape seeds and stalks - it has something "dirty" leathery in itself
    • Finish
      83 83
      RumtraubenChocolate, orange, slightly nutty, plum, rather short

  3. Othorion scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This Whisky is okay concerning its price-Performance-ratio! (Well, at least if you can get one for roundabout 55 Euro) Seeing so many people chasing this newest expression the Glendronach marketing did a good Job naming this one Revival! For me as a fan of the former Billy Walker Glendronach Style this is a slap in the face! This stuff is just so much worse than the old Revival and the new Style is kinda generic in my book as well!

  4. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    the "new" revival!
    Oloroso and PX!
    • Nose
      olfactory roundness, creamy sweetness and vanilla, rather marked spices, woody return quite important.
    • Taste
      fine sherry, less flagrant, woody more present and dry, rather peppery spices, creamy and greedy.
    • Finish
      same perceptions in the mouth with wood and a very fine sherry, more on stewed fruit, but not on mold.

  5. Amsterdam scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    This re-release of the Revival is now a mix of
    Pedro Ximénez & Oloroso sherry casks. The first Revival was only on Oloroso casks.

  6. dandan798 scored this whisky 91 points Member Senior

    The 2018 Revival is still a truly fantastic sherried whisky.
    • Nose
      89 89
      sweet, sherry, dried fruit, dates, raisins, vanilla, caramel, dark fruit, berries, cherry, chocolate, spices, cinnamon, cloves
    • Taste
      91 91
      sherry, dried fruit, dark fruit, sweetness, vanilla, spices, cinnamon, honey, chocolate, raisins, green apple, grape, citrus
    • Finish
      92 92
      sherry, sweet, raisins, vanilla, honey, milk chocolate, spices, cinnamon, cloves, oak, fruit, berries, oak, espresso

  7. Kensay scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    not worth the attention, failure is complete compared to the old release

  8. KingKutte_4.0 scored this whisky 83 points Member Junior

    a shadow of himself :(

  10. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Old Revival was better. The sweeter PX is hiding behind the too dry wood.
    • Nose
      Sherry, dried fruits, caramel, orange peel, raisin and chamomile.
    • Taste
      Sherry, dry oak, pepper, cocoa and tobacco.
    • Finish
      Medium length, oaky, spicy.
