    What a let down! Whoever has tasted the Glendronach 15y when Billy Walker was still around, will know exactly what I am talking about. A massive decline in complexity and intensity of flavors. This new version just lives from the glory of the older version, but something tells me, this will be very much short-lived.

      Quite OK, but it already shows you that there is something wrong when comparing this to what the older versions were.

      Nothing special, really. You don't even have to break a sweat to find better/more intense and complex sherry bottlings in this price range out there. Not a sherry bomb anymore...

    Not nearly as good as the older bottlings, such as 2013. Still okay for about 70 euros.

    Smells like honey. Tastes like honey. Lightly sherried with spice.
