Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1996

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.98 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    One hell of a cask this must've been, to infuse the spirit with this much richness after fourteen years of aging.
    • Nose
      Some intense, concentrated sweetness with cherries and raisins, but balanced by some balsamic vinegar, tobacco leaves and soy. Also quite meaty, with the slightest touch of sulphur. The good kind. Delicious
    • Taste
      Some mocha and espresso, with really dark chocolate, cherries and black berries. Also molasses and toffee, with a touch of aniseed. Big and bold, but never over the top.
    • Finish
      More of the same sherry goodness. Long.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Great PX cask!
    • Nose
      Dark cherry, raisin, prune, tobacco, toffee and dark chocolate filled with rum. A very light whiff of sulphur, which gives a really pleasant meaty touch to it. With a few drops of water that wears off and the red fruits and toffee gain strength. What a delicious nose at this age.
    • Taste
      Cherry, cranberry, mocha, tobacco, toffee and nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Cherry, toffee, mocha, cranberry and tobacco.

  4. RL_whisky scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Excellent sherry bomb, with the expected PX influences like raisins, other dried fruits, sweats and hints of chocolate and vanilla. Very smooth.

    I didn't get all the items mentioned on the tasting note which came with the bottle (which I read after I made my own notes not to be influenced by them), but did get some other tastes and smells.

  5. Allandale scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I have a bottle.
    • Nose
      Figs  and walnuts, raisins with a rich black coffee twist
    • Taste
      Toffee and molasses, prunes and sweet dates
    • Finish
      spicy edge, heavy complex

  6. tomy63 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A whisky a little too sweet and marked by the nut for my taste. Not very complex but easy to drink.
    • Nose
      very expressive and sweet, sweet, on caramel, chocolate, nut.
    • Taste
      quite lively, sweet, cocoa, caramel, lots of nuts, dried fruits, a little candied orange, made quite young.
    • Finish
      good length, still nuts, hazelnut, chocolate, raisins.
