  1. Marcallan38yo did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    This bottle was sold 230,00€ on The Whisky Auction Society (WAS) in March 2017

  2. tomy63 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    dark amber color, nose very marked by sherry, with a lot of coffee, then the classic aromas of a good Glendro, chocolate, hazelnut, a little nut, dried fruit ... In the mouth the 59% pass by themselves, big scale , a lot of coffee, rather dry but never too much thanks to a nice thick texture. Good length, always on coffee, chocolate, nuts, spices (cloves). Very nice version, from the level of 1993 Abbey Whisky.

  3. ThS scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Bahoum! A notch below the drum No. 3 is certain; but this remains a small slaughter for amateur oloroso dry (I'm talking about wine, of course).
    • Nose
      He nails you on the sofa of the opening. An old and venerable oloroso secco with all that can be expected of tertiary notes: fine and fragrant Italian porcini mushrooms, chalk, green olive in brine, artisanal extra-dry chocolate, gianduja but also Seville orange, lemon Menton ... Woof! Deep and intense.
    • Taste
      The same thing. Maybe a few degrees too much at the level of alcohol. It will try with water.
    • Finish
      Very long! Suave, fragrant, enjoyable.Presistance on crushed strawberry and ... blood!

  4. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    LMDW Notice: From darker-toned solar ambiances to vine rows in secret gardens, this Glendronach is so rich that every stage of the tasting has its own universe and can stand on its own. Thus, the nose pays tribute to the Palomino, the king of the appellation Xérès de la Frontera, the mouth oscillates between classicism and originality and the finish is brimming with energy and radiant with brightness.
    Profile: heady (peony, rose petals), original (dried tomatoes), winey, fruity (strawberry, currant, mandarin), empyreumatic (emery cloth, leather). Exotic (mango, pomegranate). Salt on the pruine Palomino grapes.

  5. ThS scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    LMDW tasting note
    Color: mahogany with greenish reflections.

    Nose: witty, bewitching. Capiteux (peony, rose petals), original (dried tomatoes), vinous, fruity (strawberry, gooseberry, mandarin), empyreumatic (emery cloth, leather), the first nose is also particularly exotic (mango, pomegranate). Gradually, a thin film of salt is deposited on the pruine Palomino grapes.

    Palate: heady, carnal. A fine fruity bitterness (almond, walnut, lemon) coats other fruits (raisin, date, fig, melon). She opens her secret garden to deliver notes of pumpkin, zucchini flower and pumpkin. Perfectly classic, it evolves on chocolate, pipe tobacco and cherries brandy. The finish is invaded by the sweet flavors of honeysuckle and linden honey.

    Final: long, it overflows with energy and vitality. Red and black fruits (strawberry, blackberry), grated ginger, liquorice stick, dandelion flowers and nutmeg are the main craftsmen who, stone by stone, build this solar and fresh finish at a time. The retro-olfaction sees the licorice stick turn into black licorice. Empty glass is cocoa and empyreumatic (candy for cough, toasted walnut).

  6. DunklerRabe scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    I like Glendronach alot and I like sherry cask matured whisky in general but this one is not any good. It is unbalanced and lacks value for money. It is not a really bad whisky but mediocre at best.

    My advice would be to skip this one. Get a Parliament 21yo and a bottle from any batch of their Cask Strength series. Those two together are still cheaper and deliever a more rounded experience. And you get more whisky for your money.

    If you want massively sherried whiskies at a high cask strength and at any cost (financially and tastewise) though, then this one is for you.
    • Nose
      The alcohol is there immediately. Hard to get through, behind it you will find the usual sherry influences as you would expect. And they are enormous. But the alcohol is present constantly and covers the details you might want to find.
      Water kills the impact of the alcohol and brings out more of the sherry fruityness.
    • Taste
      Not that heavy as you might have thought after nosing. The alcohol is there, but not too disturbing. You get a massive sherry sweetness.
      Water brings subtle nutty notes.
    • Finish
      Not too much oak and a rather short finish.
      Water actually prolongs the finish a bit and delievers more oak which suits this malt very well.
