  1. Jack McClane scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Incredibly balanced Dronach. No sulphur whatsoever.. for me.
    Chocolate, raisins, lovely sherry notes. No bitterness, maybe some roasted coffee and lingering sweetness. Great dark cacao notes in the end. Superb!

  2. indyjones scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Total sulphur bomb, never had before in a Glendronach

    I can not understand these very high ratings, which is neither complex nor balanced. Have tried it for the third time now and am still disappointed. Since I prefer the 12, 15, 18, 21 or 1993 Master Vintage clearly. Way too woody in the back, so not dark chocolate or similar. but really grandma's old wardrobe. A few years earlier from the barrel would probably have stood him better.

    Sulphur-bomb.

    Intense treacle, brown sugar, cacao, beautiful. No sulphur here. Needs a little water to open up.

    Overall a massive Glendronach, a very special one in deed. A rough and tough whisky. Like the peated nose!
