  1. Dronach1970 scored this whisky 84 points Member Junior

    Not the best i had, bit sherry. light traces of Cinnamon, Chocolat.

  2. p4blo scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    I really can't understand the high rate of this one. It certainly is ok, especially if you take the age into account, but nothing more than that. If this one gets rates approaching 90 points, how would you rate really good 1993 expressions?
    • Nose
      Heavy oak despite the youthfulness of this Glendronach. There are whiffs of tropical fruits - peach, pineapple and banana. Some spices with cloves and pepper and a solid amount of herbs.
    • Taste
      Fruity on yellow and red fruits, some notes of toffee and caramel. The age shines through though, with the spices burning all over the tongue.
    • Finish
      Short, slightly bitter and spicy.

    Sample from Bishlouk. Funny to find some notes that I normally associate with the sherry casks but seem to be own to GlenDronach's style nevertheless.
    • Nose
      Cinnamon, toffee, candied orange, raspberry, brown sugar, white pepper, vanilla, oak and lavender. Eventually some nectarine as well. Oddly, water makes it more spicy.
    • Taste
      Toffee, cinnamon, pepper, orange, oak and grapefruit.
    • Finish
      Cinnamon, oak, toffee, orange, grapefruit and pepper. In the end some dark chocolate and chestnut.

    It is really interesting to see how the wood gives the color and the aromas to the whisky. One often has too much tendency to imagine that these tones and aromas come essentially from the previous contents. The proof is made with this Virgin Oak ...

    Some Virgin Oak, like this one, are still really good!
    • Nose
      Beeswax, candied orange. The wood is also quite present, without being invasive. Brown sugar is hiding behind all that. You have to let the dram aerate a little to discover all the panoply of flavors.
    • Taste
      Mouth very sweet and very round despite the high alcohol content. How well integrated! A mixture of varnished wood and caramelized citrus fruits. Small peppery notes make a short passage here and there. The wood is not dominant, leaving the rest to express itself.
    • Finish
      Pretty funny! Here wood is needed anyway. Varnish carpets the tongue, the new wood expresses itself frankly but does not dry the mouth. Citrus fruits are more discreet, but still remember our good memories. A ripple of white chocolate makes a brief passage.
