  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Do not know why he gets away so bad here, my dearest "bright" Glendronach so far.
    • Nose
      Aromatic sweet, vanilla, exotic notes, all set in butter, white sugar, apricot, lemongrass
    • Taste
      Sugar cane, peach, then spicy-round oak, nutmeg, ginger, all beautifully integrated, honey, pine nuts, pineapple
    • Finish
      Medium long, round, warm, rather dry with a little woody spice

    Not your typical Glendronach but damn it's tasty! I really hope they will produce more stuff like that in the future.

  8. Lorion scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty, but very woody and kräutrig. 79 points.
    • Nose
      Very fruity. Bright fruits, lemons, oranges, nectarines. Wood, very clear and intense, the oak is right there. Not very kräutrig at the beginning, more like untreated wood. Sweet. No alcohol. It gets slightly nutty and then vanilla comes through, maybe a touch of glue.
    • Taste
      Woody, malty, roasted walnuts. Tobacco. Spicy, sweet-kräutrig in the Nachschmecken. Chocolate. After a few seconds, the oak begins to tingle, the tongue is occupied.
    • Finish
      Medium. Herbal, slightly bitter.

  10. vredensever scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Aroma : malt, white bread, a piece of biscuit cake with creamy cream, candied fruit, chocolate, nuts and jam; herbs, sweet exotic fruits with sourness, spices (vanilla). Light minerality. The taste is sweet at first, spicy: malt, pepper, vanilla, lollipops, fruit sour, nuts, a lot of oak. In development, she is clearly bitter. The aftertaste is quite long: bread with fruit jam, malt, milk chocolate, vanilla, astringent oak, fading bitterness. Conclusion . Pretty attractive whisky. An interesting experiment with a new oak tree. Overall, good, but not hooked. Rating: 84 (n22t21f21b20).
