    Great balance between the bourbon and oak casks. For eight years not bad at all, not as sherried as the 12 year old but enjoyable.Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10

      Medium. Dark chocolate, leather, red fruits, oak.

  4. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A really not bad Glendro, only more than the 15 or even 12er he would not have been worth me.
    • Nose
      Raisin, malt and dough are also present, a little honey and chocolate, young oak comes out the back
    • Taste
      Honey sweetness, quite strong and young, sherry sweetness with young bourbon oak and vanilla, an interesting combination, although not much draft, but nice fruity-vanilla notes, baked apple, a few preserved pre-ripe fruits such as apricot and vllt. a few young berries, sweet malt
    • Finish
      Continue the sweet malt, light oak chips, honey, candy, some orange peel / grapefruit

  5. Mortimore did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    A nice drinking whisky, which is not superimposed by the sherry.
    • Nose
      Light malt and vanilla flavors paired with raisin influence
    • Taste
      Strong and oily on the go. Light sherry flavor and light vanilla. There are again the raisins and orange, some honey sweetness.
    • Finish
      Dry and warming on the finish. Short to medium in length.

  8. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful adult whisky for his young age. Sherry influences are unmistakable. Smell and taste nicely balanced, finish remains something behind.
    It is a pity that it has been taken out of the core range, its replacement 'The Hielan' can not match this.

  9. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    For an 8-year-old a full flavor and nicely balanced. A good body, the finish line is slightly behind.
    • Nose
      Fruity: red fruit. citrus, orange (zest), raisins. Also sweet notes, honey, caramel, vanilla. And some oak.
    • Taste
      Lightly peppery, red fruit, orange. Honey, and milk chocolate comes through.
    • Finish
      Somewhat on the short side, peppery. Put in sweet, honey and caramel. Then become dry. Chocolate is also present in the distance
