Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1996

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.33 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Glendronach 16 Year 54% PX Puncheon 1996

    N: This ones got a bit of sulfur, but not bad, a bit rubbery, tires, minerals, slate, berry compote, mint, leather, anise a bit of beef stock perhaps. It could be umami, or just the sulfur playing tricks.

    P: Good mouthfeel, flinty, crushed rocks, berry compote, molasses, figs, plum, barrel char, leather

    F: Matches, carbon, figs, prune, orange zest, candied ginger, chili paste, dryness, long.

    84/100

    Notes: Definitely a bit of sulfur on this one, but it’s not aggressive. Quite hot again but a little water tones down the heat and spice - no wait, water ramps up the sulfur as well! It’s still interesting despite the sulfur notes.

    Edit: I have to knock another point off. Sulfur notes kept ramping up as I drank it.

    Tag Notes:

    Color  Mahogany

    Nose  Sweet floral notes front a deeper cocoa-dusted date character

    Palate Bursting with vanilla fudge

    Finish Caramelized orange plays with a soft, spiced peach finish

    There's a bit too much sulfur or gunpowder happening in this one, my least favorite Single Cask bottle.
