  1. Highlander65 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Amber color, oily aspect. A very tasty whisky, but at the same time elegant and delicate
    • Nose
      The nose is sweet, tastes of powdered sugar, pastry, sherry, raisins, ripe red fruit, a little tobacco, zero alcohol.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is very sweet: honey, vanilla, a light spicy note (white pepper and cinnamon mixed), a slight bitter hint reminiscent of gentian and licorice. Zero alcohol
    • Finish
      Medium-long finish, sweet and delicate, custard.

  14. Hultgren scored this whisky 96 points Member Senior

    It`s a smooth and verry nice whisky.
    One of the best i`ve tasted

  15. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Recommended sherry bomb. 3% more ABV would be good, but that's the only point of criticism.
    • Nose
      Classic sherry nose: Dried dates, figs, raisins, plums, tobacco, old leather, Christmas spices, walnuts, cloves
    • Taste
      Sherry, creamy, honey, plum, dried fruit such as dates and figs, what you had on the nose can also be found on the palate. With 46% ABV that would be a stunner.
    • Finish
      Sweet, then drying, raisins, milk chocolate, walnut, coffee, medium length

  16. Dronach_Aficionado scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A shining example of a sherry bomb could also be thought of as a glendronach
    • Nose

      Somewhat restrained
    • Taste
      90 90
      Great sherry bomb character, more on the Oloroso than on the PX side
    • Finish
      90 90
      medium to long, nice fruity and chocolatey

  19. JimJaws scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Not quite as good as the 25 year old but close. Probably the best and roundest standard whisky at a reasonable price. Incredibly tasty. In some shops you can still get it under € 100.

  20. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A good value 21 year old, juicy, fruity and lip smacking, not complex, a little one dimensional in fact but enjoyable and for the money the best quality/price ratio in the Glengoyne core range.
