Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 15-year-old

49 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.49 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Blueberry HubbaBubba, plums, oily-sweet-sour red fruits, fantastic fruity - excellent scent, slightly alcoholic, a little delicate vanilla, some mint, the fruit flavors are very intense, I can not find any woody notes which makes the nose a little one-dimensional
    Taste: syrupy thick, immediately blueberries, in short the alcohol tickles on the tongue, then it becomes sweet and sour, slight bitter notes spread and form a nice contrast to bright aromatic grapes, the taste is very clean, maybe a little bit up, the finish is medium to long, now comes finally spice and wood notes
    Conclusion: an extraordinary Glendronach, blindly I would not recognize him as such, the intense fruit flavors are extremely delicious, but I think that Brennereichcharakter and wood flavors come a little too short - is that still whisky?
