  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    first of all it needs some water and second it needs some time. Otherwise, no idea if the day form is, I find it today very uninspired.
    • Nose
      Very sweet sherry notes, liquorice, some oak. The whole thing smells like PX sherry, with a hint of mint.
    • Taste
      only slightly tingling, then sweet sherry flavors, combined with some spicy oak.
    • Finish
      slightly astringent, tart oak and sweet dried fruits. Sounds like sherry and oak, slightly mineral aftertaste. Departure pretty short.

  3. hj13 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The first nose is very sweet, but at first I always find a slightly disturbing, "artificially" smelling undertone, which somewhat affects the overall impression. After adding a few drops of water, this stitch has abruptly disappeared, and the great caramel (Werther's Real) unfolds wonderfully. The unbridled sweetness continues in the mouth - a nice, pleasant tingling heat rises after each sip. Nothing burns, great integration of the alcohol (also undiluted). Long finish, some dryness in the throat - great! Nice complexity, would have estimated him a little older than his eleven years.

  6. Goethe scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Quite enjoyable. This Glendronach is not very chatty. More fruits and sherry by adding some water.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 7/10
    • Nose
      Sherry, marzipan, caramel, dark fruits, gun powder, coffee, wood polish, nuts.
    • Taste
      Sherry, marzipan, dark fruits, dried fruits, prunes, a touch of bitterness.
    • Finish
      Medium. Dark rum chocolate, wood and some spices.

    A good, tasty sherry whisky that has not only dominating sherry flavors.
    • Nose
      Orange, caramel, red fruit, coffee.
    • Taste
      Full, sugar, caramel, red fruit, light pepper.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet, caramel, slightly bitter.

  10. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Not very complex, yet very mature for his age. Price: 70 euros
    • Nose
      Mild, fruity sweetness with sherry and caramel. Coffee flavors in the background.
    • Taste
      Creamy, fine texture. Also mild and balanced. Due to the slightly higher alcohol content, the sherry sweet tingles in conjunction with wood flavors pleasant on the tongue. In the background are subtle spices and other wood flavors.
    • Finish
      Sweet and rather short.
