Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1978

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.32 points

  1. Rossi99 scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Just a normal middle aging sherry one and the body is too weak!
    Finish is kind of short.  
    Considering the price is around 400 euros, I believe we have more choices.

  2. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A true experience to behold.
    • Nose
      A sack of dried figs, literally a burlap sack. Some old spices in a dusty market. Orange oils, walnut oil and nuts in abundance.
    • Taste
      Extremely smooth, only the slightest bit of cinnamon spice. Its old sherry alright, figs, raisins and even a touch of dried cranberry. I get some layers of tobacco, old leather.
    • Finish
      Dry as a bone, dark chocolate and soothing tannings. Charred wood and old sherry
