Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1996

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.67 points

  1. sssun scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    A very deep color sherry Glendronach, very oily and medium body. However, with some tannic, maybe the cask wood influences the whisky body too much.
    Score: 86 Tasted on 2010.10.31

    Color: Dark amber, quite bodied Aroma: Shirley, with some bubble gum, sweet wheat, occasional picking, raisins, grassy notes, vanilla, cream Palate: The entrance is the sourness of citrus, followed by some slightly bitter orange peel, Shirley, with a bit of herbal taste, chocolate bitter Finish: Medium bodied wine, with some cocoa bitterness, wheaty sweetness, and nutty flavour. The throat is a little dry.
    A medium-bodied but heavy oil-filled Shirley bucket, a darker-colored Glendronach, rich in flavor but with some irritating bubble gum when first touched. There are some tannins behind the entrance, perhaps too deep into the barrel.
    • Nose
      Sherry, bubble glue, malt sweet, some alcoholic, raisin, grass, vanilla, and cream.
    • Taste
      Tangerine sour, tangerine peel, sherry, unknown herb, chocolate, wood, and tannic.
    • Finish
       Medium, chocolate, sweet malt, nut, a little dry throat finally.
