Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1992

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.91 points

  1. Dottore scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: 26 years of SC Glendronach from an Oloroso barrel, bottled for Abbey Whisky. Here you get what you expect from a Glendronach Single Cask: raisins, dates, tobacco, leather, but also for the rather dry Oloroso, unusually sweet notes with white chocolate and vanilla. Light sulfur, not disturbing, but noticeable.

    Mouth Sweet in the mouth, but has this nice old note, the 26 years have left an impression. Leather, musty, tobacco. Slightly above the point in terms of modernity but not in the direction of herbalism, which I really like, but something in the direction of sulfur.

    Finish: long, heavy, sweet-musty at first, then slowly astringent. Little bitterness in the finish.

    Conclusion: Nice Glendronach single cask, quite musty, you have to like that too. Minimally goes sulphurous. But overall a nice whisky but not a high-flyer. 89 points

    A classic. The 4th pick by the guys at Abbey (# 33, 3400, 652, and now 66). Some folks named this bottling as "The Stonker". I guess it is stonkingly good.

      A balanced, heavy oloroso nose. Excellent depth -- dark, sweet, earthy, and winey. Quite fresh and slightly medicinal in a good way.... maybe it's the cherry cough syrup. Lots of dark chocolates, dried coffee, plums, and a serious load of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia. It is a delicious ice cream made in Vermont, if you've never tried it, and readily available in many grocery stores in the U.S.

      Powerful but it's balanced. The ABV is perfect here at 57.1%. No need to list all the flavors of oloroso, but they're all here. Swims well with water. If's there's one complaint, it is that it's slightly dry, but then again, you have to realize that oloroso sherry does give you that roasted coffee, dark chocolate dryness, and it's not inherently a fault.

      Lengthy finish with chocolate peanut butter. Really?!?
