  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Water: the nose goes on and on, with water, the malt is wonderfully clear, sweeter and more intense, Rumrosines are now in the foreground and in the taste of the oak is no longer so dominant.

    Conclusion: he really has everything that an exceptional sherry man needs, and also every single flavor in abundance. Water is recommended. If anything wants to say negative: a bit too much oak in the taste and finish, but otherwise an absolute toppings

      Bämm, he starts immediately with one of the fattest Sherrynasen I ever had in the glass, fat fat sweet, dates, plums, figs, fruit cake, raisins, a few cherries and berries, plus a great and balanced seasoning of oak barrels, cloves and cinnamon , some balsamic and licorice root, even a small cloud of smoke flavors brings the barrel. Behind the sherry, finer aromas emerge, orange and vanilla can be found

      fat and oily mouthfeel, here the sherry becomes very strong, also the oak is much more noticeable, liquorice and balsamic notes take over the leading role
    • Finish
      90 90
      long, very complex, here too the oak notes are stronger, the licorice and the balsamic vinegar are accompanied by dark cacao notes, becoming bitter in the back

    Excellent quality from the first to the last second of enjoyment.

      Immediately present and intense. Dark fruit blend with raisins, dates, figs and plums abound. Balsamic vinegar is added quickly, then oak and spicy notes.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Also intense in the mouth, figs, dark berries, dark chocolate, tobacco, coffee, balsamic. The alcohol is great involved.

      Long, dark fruit flavors, beautiful oak, sweet tobacco.

    Lovely example of an old Glendronach, so true to the distillery and cask type.
    • Nose
      Thick and sticky, heavily sherries Christmas pudding enjoyed by a log fire in the study of an old Scottish country house. Soft smokiness with tobacco leaves and unrolled fine Cuban cigars. With time the fruity character of Glendronach strolls in with figs, dates and even a helping of creme brulee
    • Taste
      Very powerful on arrival, lots of energy and vigor, not what you usually get from an older sherry cask. Seville orange marmalade with a little Terry's chocolate orange dark. Notes of old oak coming through but its restrained and not bitter.
      With water cloves are there on the tip, notes of sour dough and an increase in woodiness becoming increasingly bitter.
    • Finish
      Oaky, drying with braised beef, beef stew, steak and ale pie. Water emphasises the oak and brings out bitter notes.

  5. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Very focused, intense whisky, with beef stock, balsamic vinegar, teriyaki, and dark soy sauce, in addition to the myriads of flavors that naturally come with a heavily sherried Glendronach. Delicious oak and dried, very dark chocolates. This is a very good one. 92 .5 points.

    Absolute stunner! Glendronach single cask matured to perfection. Lots of flavours and a bit of ash/dust at the end (not typical for PX casks I guess). Genius.
