Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1992

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.68 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Rather good indeed.
    • Nose
      Clean (no sulphur!) and dry sherry, with a lovely creaminess too, as well as hints of fudge, coffee beans and dark chocolate. Hint of candy hearts as well. Fair amount of aceto balsamico to boot, followed by a whiff of furniture polish and cigar tobacco
    • Taste
      Thick and velvety mouthfeel, with a whisper of aniseed, followed by espresso notes and more balsamic, as well as blackcurrants. Despite the high abv, this is dangerously quaffable. Somewhat astringent and slightly spicy too.
    • Finish
      Long. Quite spicy, and a tad tannic, with a whisper of ashes.

  2. Rom scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Toffee notes, coffee, cognac, cooked caramel, orange peel: the influence of sherry is very strong on the nose. We still feel the alcohol but it disappears after a generous dilution.
    The mouth is very powerful from the attack, this dram is not a model of integration. The texture is thick, it is mainly in concentrated caramel coffee.
    Very long finish, sticky, always well marked by the coffee with a touch of bigarade.
    Quite extreme and monolithic, very good swimmer.
