Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1972
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.38 points
- Not too shabby, but compeletely a no go compared side to side with #712.
Nose: Sour apricot, light caramel, vinegar, apple.
Palate: sour and spirity, with some raw spirit, vinegar, orange, berries.
Finish: med-length fruits and sourness, some oily notes.
- Colour: Dark mahogany
Nose: Prunes, dried figs, balsamic vinegar, orange zest, tobacco, old oak, hints of vanilla.
Palate: Quite similar to the nose, with a bit less vinegar and some dark dark chocolate.
Finish: Very long, dry and fruity with a hint of smoke.
Overall: The slight balsamic vinegar note makes this rich old whisky a slightly unusual but extremely enjoyable delight.
