  3. Carsten scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    GlenDronach, 15.01.1993-05.2013, OL Sherry SC 3, Batch 8, 52.9% Color: reddish brown Nose: dark chocolate, some orange, wet park bench, hint of ham ... with water: fresher and fruity, oranges, caramel Body: oily Mouth: Dark chocolate, coffee beans, tobacco, ginger ... with water: smoother, caramel, oranges Finish: medium-long, mild, first dark chocolate notes, then bitter notes of wood Conclusion: 87.5P / 90P (without / with water) complex, becomes more elegant with water.

  4. ThS scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Keep getting better with aeration. After testing in various glasses, the ideal glass for this one is definitely Schott Zwiesel's no ice whisky.
    • Nose
      Immediately bewitching. Complex and charming. The old wood oloroso cask, with its range of coffee, cocoa, cepes, walnuts, chalk. At the inspiration, a fruity frame with blood orange as the guiding thread. Effluves of rose, white flowers, white pepper, clove. Flushes of aromatic herbs. In the bustle, the floral side is beautiful and taking. Caramel too, dates, something oriental (pastries dripping with honey and caramelized almonds).
    • Taste
      Fat, unctuous, lining. Beeswax as a showcase with fruity depth. Coffee, nuts, praline. A little salt and spices. Superb touch of mouth and beautiful architecture. Fondant.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate, Espelette pepper, walnut and coffee liqueurs, all coated with beeswax.

  7. WhiskyJug scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Glendronach 20 yo 1993/2013 (52.9%, OB, batch 8, oloroso sherry butt, cask #3, 633 bottles)
    Colour: full amber. Nose: very different again, this is shier but also
    seemingly more complex, maybe more elegant… So less ‘wham-bam’, with
    more flowers (orange blossom, lime tree), then rocks, earth, this
    feeling of old wine cellar again, a few walnuts, touches of balsamico,
    fresh almond and… gewürztraminer. I mean roses and litchis, but only wee
    touches. So heavy sherry can remain complex and elegant! A little bacon
    too (that’s less elegant, I agree). With water: an old cabinet of
    Partagas Lusitania. I smoke very rarely these days but these stunning
    aromas remain very vivid in my mind. Mouth (neat): it’s desert! Many
    honeys and many liqueurs, with a perfect combination of oranges,
    caraway, orange blossom honey, Virginia tobacco, candied ginger and a
    fistful of juicy sultanas to round this off. With water: absolute
    perfection. Love the dryness. Finish: very long, it’s like a grande
    finale. Love the bitterness, no aftertaste should be sweet in my
    opinion. Comments: I almost went for 93 points. This one might well be
    the best recent 20 years old I could taste. Very, very impressive. So,
    old Lusitanias, I remember very well when we first… But you don’t care,
    do you? SGP:462 - 92 points.whiskyfun.com

  8. getz scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    An amazing 20 year old whisky from Glendronach`s 8th Batch of single casks. Distilled in 1993 and aged until May 2013 in a single oloroso butt. Dark, rich and decadent.

    And it then sold out within minutes!  The wonderful world of the internet.
