  1. Nilles scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Appealing. Mild, soft, sweet, as I like him ...
    Grapes, something "grassy" (not at all GD-typical) and the obligatory PX plum ...
    The alcohol is very well integrated and harmonises well with the aromas.
    Nice, medium-long and slightly spicy finish ...
    Very pleasing, but not necessarily a "must have", especially not for the price.

    An interesting new addition to the Glendronach lineup. The nose is quite atypical, but also a welcome change of pace for the usual fat sherried character of this distillery. The supposed port influence is not really obvious; though the new 10yo Port Wood should fill that gap nicely. Anyway, a decent bottling and well worth trying.
    • Nose
      Gentle sweetness, liquefied Werther’s originals and whispers of vanilla. A little ozone and candied ginger, followed by a somewhat sour sensation of currant in vinegar. With lots of air you can find citrus – ripe juicy oranges primarily.
    • Taste
      Sweet and juicy. A touch of virgin oak, caramel, and lots of vanilla pods. A touch of umami – meaty undertones of pork lard, pop corn, and eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      Medium. Sour-sweet tannins, lightly mentholated tea, and buttered corn.

    Wow it's a Glendronach? Divisive. It has a grotesque, thin grainy taste too, but it's good. 86/87.
    • Nose

      Butter caramel, waxy fruits, honey, spicy oak, vanilla, glue, wine and wine vinegar.
    • Taste

      Sweet, malt, towards the end a bit sharp, glue note
      Glue on the second time much weaker, not so extreme "cover" as in Tomatin14Port
    • Finish

      a bit bittersweet, malty, medium long
