Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1989

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.03 points

  1. alectron scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      after the sweeter 93/90 batch 6 Gd's: woody, rubbery, surprisingly mineral/stone-y, quite a faint & savoury nose, underneath there's some darker fruits & sherry,  (85)
      If not directly compared to sweeter Gds, my nose needs quite a lot of time to catch up / later: nice european wood spiceyness, sherry/sweet wine/grap e concentrate now, dark dried fruits, molasses, slightly herbal, wet leather (87)
    • Taste
      bitter/sweet fusion of sherry, wood & herbal notes, occasionally quite a few parma mint notes as well,  (81)
    • Finish
      salted plums, nice sherry/wine tail, molasses and some mint/menthol underneath  (87)

    Producer`s Notes
    Apprearance: Rich golden bronze.
    Nose: Intense moscatel grape notes harmonising with honey, vanilla and hazelnuts.
    Palate: Lashings of honey with moscatel grapes, playing in harmony with oak-wood, hazelnuts, spices and dates.

  4. aby scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    nose: needs time to open, after 5 minutes sharp, spicy, caramel taste: some thin, licorice, very spicy, slightly dry overall: falls for his age and for this distillery something against 85p
    tasted with E.Elixer
