Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1991
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.97 points
- Sherry dream. Intense, spicy, fruity. Lots of spices, less sweet. Menthol. That comes over very well, maybe a touch too tart.
- When the right malt meets the right cask for the right time, there is reason to bring you back with the whole world!
Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:
Rich and enticing. The perfect mix between fruits, wood, and (oloroso?) sherry. Dry fruits (walnut marzipan, sultanas) and cooked fruits (all kind of "dark" jams such as figs or black cherries). Some roasting aromas too (coffee liqueur). Reminds me of a "Black Russian" (Kahlua and Vodka). Nothing sluggish though, thanks to a rancio-like tangy note, like in a high end Madeira. Perhaps a little ripe pomegranate as well? I really like it, but will the mouth follow the nose?
Yup it does! Dry fruits are on the foreground, and it's as tasty as a hazelnut liqueur, accompanied by some tantalizing cocoa flavours. Enhanced by a slight woody sourness, it's as waxy and creamy as in a dream. Like drinking spoonfuls of maple syrup. We're probably pretty close to 55%, but the balance is fantastic. The rise of a hint of burnt wood brings some more complexity to this absolutely delightful malt.
Long and tasty, it vanishes on a subtle woody bitterness.
- Superb product, very sherry, and very fine.
Nose very nice, although not explosive. Ultradomine sherry: lots of nuts, dates, wood, vanilla and caramel.
Superb: sweet, on dried fruits (always lots of nuts), spices, caramel. It's very fine. Notes of liquorice, toffee, raisins, coffee, and cooked plums. It's quite "raw bole cognac".
A quality finish, very long, on dried fruits, toffee, spices (exotic wood, maybe clove and nutmeg, but without conviction) and coffee.
- superb mouth
very oloroso sherry but a little shy
- Same cask but different label -
- This cask was a safe choice. It has a few nice touches (oak polish, gingerbread) while remaining within the "classic" profile everyone has come to expect from GlenDronach single casks.
Nice sherry, powerful and round. Dried fruits, some nutty notes. Very polished with some waxed furniture, similar to the great GlenDronach 1992 cask #161 in that respect. Blackberry jam and figs, maybe even some black cherries. Sparkling top notes of orange liqueur and mint as well. Rum & raisins. Plenty of good sherry associations.
Rather oily, not really thick or powerful. Starts on dried fruits again, with some added herbal notes and polished oak. Plums. Cocoa. Not extremely complex, but very pleasant. Nice gingerbread and aniseed in the end.
Quite long, a little drier, with some tobacco now and some oak and spices.
