  1. EvilAFI scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Not a typical Glendronach sherry finish, but still good. A bit sweet, but not on the palate. Happy to sample, not after a bottle
    • Nose

      Sugary sweet, floral, green grapes,apple, some malt found under all the perfume sweetness
    • Taste
      89 89

    • Finish
      87 87

  4. theograph scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    As a GD lover, this malt looks a bit pale, starts with a great nose, palate and finish do not offer the expected GD quality;
    • Nose
      First a dry sweetness (I think of cognac!) Sprinkled with light bitterness, roasted aromas, brown melted butter, a distinct note of overripe fruit, maybe a browned banana, brown sugar, (milk) chocolate;
    • Taste
      Fruity and soft onset, looks very light, somewhere hidden a lemon note, bright apples join it, ripe white Weintrauen, a subtle dry mouthfeel occurs;
    • Finish
      Medium or even short with a soft fruit note (white grapes are now clearer), soft and / or unspectacular;

  8. pianoman scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Light grapes, some lemon. Pineapple, melon, marzipan. Damp grass.
    • Taste
      Again bright grapes. Tropical fruits, pineapple.

  9. Joschbert scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Just a dream. Complex. Drinkable. Too bad he does not exist anymore. One of the few other Moscatel finishes is the Royal Lochnagar Distillers Edition, but in terms of complexity it does not come close to here.
    • Nose
      Pineapple, cherries, hints of leather and cigar box. Milk chocolate, balsamic cream, seasoning, cinnamon and cloves. With some water more fruit: nectarine and apricot
    • Taste
      Intensive. Cedar wood, leather, weak organic (fleshy?) Note, dried apricots, oranges, tobacco, hints of smoke, nutmeg. Fruity wine notes come through with water - Muskateller could get there, at least I think.
    • Finish
      The wine notes sound slow, dry, oak, stone fruit, plum. Long.

  10. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very tasty, overripe compote.
    • Nose
      Orange blossom, vanilla, toffee, apricot, marzipan, citrus, nutmeg, brown sugar
    • Taste
      Liqueur-like, sweet, overripe plums & tangerines, but also tropical, creamy, vanilla, toeffee and raisin follow, then comes nutmeg and pepper
    • Finish
      Medium to long, jam, apricot, a bit spicy oak stay
