    Tasting notes for a bottle of Parliament from 2019.
    Very good whisky, but too much wood for a higher rating and the alcohol could be better incorporated.

  5. ThorstenH scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    It's been a while since I've had a GD21 in the glass and it's again a very nice experience. Fruity sherry notes. No dark fruits, more apricot combined with some PX sweetness.

  8. Wiggerl scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    The nose is very sweet, raisins, caramel, dates, a little tangerine. Not nearly as (cardboard) sweet in the mouth, here you notice the Oloroso portion, rather dark sweetness, a little chocolate, then spicyness, a little bit bitter wood spice. The finish carries the aromas for a medium to long time, and it looks a bit watery towards the end. All in all, a harmonious Glendronach.

  10. Mannix65 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    a well-rounded affair - unites the worlds of Oloroso and PX - a drop of water is very good for him
    • Nose
      88 88
      Rum raisins, sherry, sweet red grape juice, waxy furniture polish, pipe tobacco, currant jelly
    • Taste
      89 89
      clear sherry, chocolate and raisins, sweet forest berry jam - creamy and harmonious, without any edges - red grape juice, with pleasant oak notes behind it; some maggi herb
    • Finish
      88 88
      medium-long sherry aftertaste with red berry sweetness

    This, my friend, it's a ****ing masterpiece.

    The sherry notes instantly jumps out of your jigger just before you put it in a glass. The fragrance of red dates, dried raisins, cream cake fills in your nose quickly.

    Mouthfeel, impressive balance between it's smoothness and it's strengh. The sweetness are not too overpowering, everything about this dram it's balanced on point.

  14. Varrek scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Very round and balanced, nice sherry sweet. Long finish.

  16. Wum scored this whisky 94 points Expert Junior

    Conclusion: seldom had such a round and perfectly balanced whisky in the glass. He is a real dream. The aromas are strong and intense. The alcohol is perfectly integrated and carries the aromas perfectly! One of my favorite whiskys!
    • Nose
      Deeply dark sweetness, sugar, vanilla, sherry, slightly fruity, very complex, zero alcohol in the nose, gradually building up more and more. A real dream!
    • Taste
      strong start, intense, sweet, perfectly integrated oak, complex, very tasty. Every sip makes you want more!
    • Finish
      long and intense. very oily.

  17. Mitswhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Bought this bottle for 112.5€ at Drankdozijn.de
    But they don’t write the Bottlecode on the homepage.
    Might be another Glendronach 21 Parliament 2019 when you order.
