  1. HKWhiskyExplorer scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    S 8
    Very distinctively complex compared to modern Glendronach (More fruits forward than Sherry/oak forward). Sherry is obvious here but at the same time, it provides ample room for the distillate to shine through the heavy Sherry influences. A good alternative for those who like Sherry casked whiskies that are not heavy-handed on forcing the Sherry into the liquid.

    [86-89] YES!!! One to be tasted and remembered for years. I'll buy a bottle whenever possible.

    N 28
    Earthy grapevine. Dark grapes. Winery, like a good old vintage oloroso/Amontillado. Hazelnut slices. Malted barley is at its base. A whiff of dried tobacco leaves. A hint of sour cherry at the back.

    P 28
    Sweet, oaky, fizzy spices. Old oak furniture. 50% dark chocolate. Dried tobacco leaves again. Mixed baking spices powder (ginger, clove, cardamom). Marmalade, plenty of orange peels. Juicy raisins. The nostalgia of a dirty dunnage warehouse.

    F24
    Short-mid finish. Juicy, drying oak. Mild peppery spices lingering.

    I find that this is a good quality sherry matured whisky. But even the old 15 and 18 are better, with more dark and foosty notes.

    This is called master vintage 1993, but I have a feelingen that the best 1993 casks are allready bottled as single casks by Billy Walker.

    Gorgeous whisky!
    Not pretending to be an obsessive sherry, it is unusually and surprisingly diverse with other tones that are not typical for sherry aging!
    And what is most interesting - almost no sulfur content!
    It's impressive!

    23 23 22 22
    • Nose
      Very pleasant!
      Delicate prunes, light woodiness, other dried dried fruits, thinner, tobacco leaf, chocolate, Jamaican confectionery rum, baba rum, bristled pigskin, olives
    • Taste
      Astringency and bright sweetness of dried fruits, rancier, heat immediately spreads through the esophagus, dryness and viscosity, mango, citrus fruits, fruit candies, tobacco leaf, a little tofi, bitter chocolate, a little bit of vanilla, dressed leather and again mango, mint, spices, a pinch of salt, a little sulfur and of course baby prunes!
    • Finish
      Pleasant sweetness of pastries and fresh shortcrust pastry with fruit jam, fresh tobacco, cinnamon, ginger, enveloping tannin bitterness

    Classic sherry whisky, much more interesting than modern McAllans

  17. marmeladow scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    Profound and varied. One of the best that I've tasted so far.
    Uncorked 6 months ago, initially very closed and with a dominant oak flavor. At first it took a long time to stand in the glass and several pipettes of water. As the bottle emptied, it became more intense and complex and a real pleasure, both neat and with a reduction to 46%
    • Nose
      96 96
      Color: mahogany or burnt sienna.
      Initially oak, old wine cellar, pepper and ginger. Then plum, sultanas, roasted almonds, nuts, marzipan, Seville orange, fruit bread with cloves and cinnamon.
      Very profound, difficult and complex
    • Taste
      97 97
      Neat: dark chocolate for men, Seville orange, sherry barrel and oak, seasoning with pepper and ginger.
      With 46% rounder, bitter-sweet, more dried fruit, as well as cloves, cinnamon, dark chocolate, roasted walnuts, crème brûlée, oranges.
      Heavy, powerful, oily and very complex in the mouth feel
    • Finish
      96 96
      Neat: Long, deep, spicy, becoming drier.
      With 46% there are coffee notes and a pleasant, slightly bitter sweetness and otherwise everything that the nose and palate promised

    Rather "low level" sherry. Not much going on and not my profile. If I compare that to the notes of others here I wonder if my sample was compromised.

  21. WhiskyCasual scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Not much sherry or not enough sherry?
    Some people seem to be unsure about their preferences..

    I like this dram a lot with its more subtle characteristics.
    Caramel, honey, orange liquor, a sweet and creamy mouthfeel and just the right amount of oak in the aftertaste.

  24. tommy12 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Parallel to the 1993 Master Vintage, I had the Glendronach 1993/2017 # 394 in my glass some time ago. The color of the Master Vintage is lighter than the # 394. The Master Vintage is less tasty and "thinner" than the # 394, which is in a completely different league (90P). The Master Vintage is slightly bitter, but also good, has a slight sweetness and is pleasant to drink. Due to the (relatively) low intensity, it is best to drink undiluted. Summary: Don't buy again as there are so much better single cask bottlings from Glendronach than the 1993 Master Vintage. Since I expected a similar quality to that of the Single Casks, I am quite disappointed and will no longer buy a similar type of Glendronach. The price of the Master Vintage is also too high for what is on offer.

    Not typical glendronach because of less intensity and wood influence. It's more subtle and elegant.
    Not too complex, but overall really good!

      Blind sample:

      Colour:
      Amber

      Nose:
      Ahhh ... here a sweet leather note greets me first. Blueberries, plums and yeast dough. Wet pipe tobacco and some mint. A nice mix of spices now also plays a role. In addition, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
      With a little time in the glass, the colleague appears sedate, old and with a heavy sweetness. A wonderful note of wax prevails. In the background I find something light-fruity. So goes in the direction of the pear. I've noticed that if it gets the right air, it opens even more. But now it looks fresher and more floral. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Sweet, but also a spicy start. Slightly chili and then immediately a syrupy PX sweetness. A bit of rosemary and dark cherries. Milk chocolate and a little caramel. The berries come through better with the second sip. This dense wax note in the taste too. I mean, behind the whole, ripened sweetness, to taste a load of wood. Plus peppermint.
    • Finish
      Nice long. First pleasantly spicy, then again that wonderful, funky, syrupy sweetness.

    Quite tasty Glendronach, although it doesn't really stand out compared to Parliament. This is softer in the overall profile
    • Nose
      nice soft sherry notes, plums, raisins, light spice, a bit sweet, slightly come nuts and vanilla, looks slightly closed, light notes of chocolate, some herbs, the alcohol is very well integrated and not noticeable.
    • Taste
      fruity soft start, hardly any alcohol to be felt, lots of dried fruits, plums and raisins, oak comes and becomes a bit bitter, spicy, slightly herbs in the background. At the end very fruity but also bitterly dry
    • Finish
      Nice sherry-heavy finish, a bit sweet with vanilla, then becomes spicy and dry, slightly bitter oak notes, medium-long, some chocolate comes again in the background.

    TASTE: Quite rich arrival, medium dry, sweet sherry and wine notes, a bit buttery, some meatiness. With time more fruitiness as well as butter toffee. Medium bodied mouthfeel. (90p)
    EXIT: Quite a bit of wood tannic pepperiness, just on the right side of too much (87p)
    SCORE: 89-90 points.

    [Tasting]
    Dashi soy sauce, slightly aggressive raw tree branches, rusted iron, dry black soil, smoked.
    Espresso coffee, apricots, dark chocolate, burnt wood, black beans, bittersweet spices.

    The ripe red fruits are subdued, with a strong nuance of coffee and dark chocolate, with a slight off-flavor.

    It is a sherry casque whisky with a solid feeling, but it was a bottle where the part I am not good at in 1993 Glendronac is stronger.

    It was a price of $ 250 (about 37,000 yen at the current rate), but I think that it is not necessary for those who buy single casks at this half price.

    There are many vintage features and the scale is large, so it may be better to drink some time in the bottle before drinking.

  54. waal scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Powdered sugar, liquid milk chocolate, a little espresso, hazelnuts, tough honey, raisins soaked in rum. Coffee pomace and rich sherry influence. A little oak and a hint of polish. Spices complete the likeable picture. A rather gentle aroma game without mistakes, which gets better and better the longer you leave the malt in the glass. Very nice.

    Taste:
    Unfortunately watery. In terms of taste, this Glendronach doesn't really offer much. The typical sherry-nutty-chocolate-espresso-vanilla is easy (!) But unfortunately too shy for me. Too shy! That is vlt. the weakest glendronach in taste that I've had in a glass for a long time. The 12er OA is much more interesting and intense. Quite pleasant, bright and subtly fruity, it's leisurely towards the finish. A little lukewarm cocoa (i.e. not powder, but cocoa powder mixed in milk) provides a pleasant, sweet basic character.
    The taste is nice, does not put anyone away, but shouldn't be really interesting for anyone either. Reminds me a little of a Macallan 12.

    For me there is far too little rich sherry influence. Where are the dark fruits, the raisins, the figs and dates? Lord where?

    finish:
    Short finish with few new impressions. The tasting is irrelevant.

    Conclusion / points:
    As before with the HP Triskelion, I am disappointed here with a relatively good nose in taste. The drop in the HP was even more blatant. The nose of the Glendronach is less complex than the HP, but not quite as weak in taste (but that means nothing at all ...).

    I always try to ignore the price and the PLV for my notes. Here and at the mentioned HP I am extremely (!) Scolded. I pull myself together and only try to evaluate the aromas and tastes.

  56. Totoro scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    More refill-oriented than earlier GD bottlings, to be sure, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. In this 1993, the weighty, muscular distillate is allowed to really stand out, which I appreciate.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Fruity and floral, yet sweet and heavy at the same time. Lovely interplay between sweet and sour. Chinese plum wine, dried dates, fermenting fruit, blueberry pie, marshmallows, almond paste, speculoos. I love how the thick, sweet and meaty GD distillery character comes through in the nose and is not covered up by a tidal wave of first-fill sherry. Overall, the sherry influence is more acidic / juicy than leathery / nutty. After some time in the glass, one can even detect a kind of dry minerality. If earlier GD's were akin to heavy, bruising red wines, this more resembles an elegant yet full-bodied white wine (if that makes sense). It's different, but outstanding in its own way.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Strong start with quite some bite (use of water officially permitted). First the sweetness kicks in, then the fruits, then the nuts, then the oak. The development or sequence of flavor impressions is complex and rich in variety. A lot of wood towards the end, but it's all still in balance. Minor criticisms: at times the mouthfeel seems a bit thin, there's intermittent bitterness (which the nose gave zero indication of), and the spirit does have a certain sharpness / bite to it, even when reduced. Not as flawless as the nose, I'm afraid.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Peppery, nutty, mineralic, tart, quite some tannins. Would've loved more sweetness après la mort...

      Phew, I'm not quite sure what the other testers here mean by the filigree and flowery than other sherry bombs from GD, for me also clearly Maggi as in almost all current SC GD except a few grandeurs, behind a little less and chocolate pudding comes out, sour brownies, nutmeg, allspice, dates

    I can‘t make head nor tail of this...to me it is absolutely disappointing! Nice nutty notes and oak but it definitely lacks the depth of the ”older“ Glendronachs!
    Sorry, but personally I don‘t like the new style of Glendronach!
    Way too expensive for what you get!

  65. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A tough comparison to the myriad of stellar 1993 single casks. I feel like this lacks a bit of a punch, while still displaying a great breadth of flavor and aroma. All these impressions line up well with Glendronach’s house style. Perhaps the low strength invites you for more even quicker – a calculated outcome for better sales? I kid of course. Good stuff!

      ‘Tis the stuff! A mélange of fig, honeyed date, and sugary rhubarb cake. The oak is present, but you need to search for it. Cucumber, honeydew, and heavy spice – nutmeg, glove, and some ground coriander.

      Pretty tame and gentle arrival for its 48.2% ABV. Rhubarb pie, mentholated tannins, cocoa powder, and orange jam.

      Medium. Dark chocolate, black tea, and buttered Sunday buns.

      warm, aromatic, initially a bit spicy with wood notes, sherry, grape-nut chocolate, complex and changing. Fruity component of dried and fresh fruits. Clear sherry influence but without overlaying. A hint of orange and a hint of vanilla. Appealing and encouraging to try.

      aromatic with warm wood notes, light fire and spice. Nuts, sherry, dry fruits, spices, orange, coffee, a hint of cocoa, delicious and engaging.
    • Finish
      91 91
      first a hint of tart with oak and coffee, then tart, sweet and fruity with a bit of orange and dry fruits, a lot of fruity sherry, soft, at the end slightly drying, with a long finish with sherry. Delicious, a really good one!

    This one may require a shift of mindset when you're used to the 1993 single casks. It's much more subtle with more room for the distillery profile. Not inferior, but just a completely different kind of malt.

    Quite a complex whisky which really needs time to appreciate.
    • Nose
      Elegant sherry begins the journey, mulled wine and dessert liqueurs start to creep in. Sticky raisins soaked in brandy and waiting to go into the Christmas cake. Hints of cinnamon spice and a touch of coal smoke hovering.
    • Taste
      Thinner than expected with the mouthfeel but still packing a punch. Lots of spice; cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, paprika. The classic sherry notes of raisins, chocolate and orange are there as well.
    • Finish
      Drying, orange juice, a soft wood spice and smoke rising in the distance.

    Another proof that Rachel is breaking new ground! A very good and elegant malt, without question, but not what I love about Glendronach.
    The "new" Glendronach style is lighter and more flowery-elegant and the beautiful heavy sherry boards are unfortunately unfortunately a thing of the past!
