    A typical Glendronach, lots of fruit, clear barrel, but without bitterness.
    To me, pure PX doesn't necessarily offer more than the standards that go into the mix with Oloroso. You can still sip away easily.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Quite fresh and herbaceous, sweet, marzipan, campino orange, initially also peach stone and cardboard, becomes more harmonious if you give it more time
    • Taste
      86 86
      Another league, also very sweet in the beginning, then it becomes nutty, chocolate, without any bitterness, also hardly dry, the sherry casks stay here without too strong seasoning (American Oak?).
    • Finish
      84 84
      It lacks a bit of stamina at the back, but the aroma remains pleasant.

  5. mbaecker scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Very beautiful needs air for a while. Nice nose of sherry, cherry and something like plum? A little "thin" compared to the older ones and less complex. 46% do him good in any case and he likes it much better than the std 12er.
    STS.

  6. JoachimV scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Light sherry profile: apples with cinnamon, raisins, dark chocolate, orange and almonds.
    • Taste
      Soft: raisins, more almonds, dark chocolate and quite fruity.
    • Finish
      Medium, warm and sweet. Apples with cinnamon again and a little bitterness through the chocolate.
      Yummy!

      Sherry! Slightly artificial sweetness, strong oak flavor, almond and hazelnut, oranges, raisins and cherries
    • Taste
      87 87
      Malty and sweet, with cherries, hazelnuts, fine dark chocolate and cream. Great integrated oak spice!
    • Finish

      Medium length and very round, warming and sweet

  21. Black Boar scored this whisky 75 points Member Senior

    Good whisky, but I have tasted better Glendronachs in the past. Maybe am I spoiled by the original ‘first edition’ of Glendronach’s Revival, my best ever tasted whisky for so far.
    That is my standard with wich I try to compare every other Glendronach or other Speyside-whisky. However the 2008 is a good whisky and remains her good taste after every sip
    • Nose
      Light nutty, marzipan
    • Taste
      Chocolate, Woody, Citrus with slightly orange
    • Finish
      Smooth with spicy finish. Volatile, the aftertaste does not last long.
