Whisky Reviews for Glendronach Cask Strength

62 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.42 points

  1. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Appearance: Deep caramel color, amber-orange. Quite leggy. Pretty sherry look.

    Nose: Raisins, barley sugar, light chocolate, lots of sherry as expected. Touch of ginger spice. Slightly nutty. A bit of beef brother too.

    Palate: Sweet honey, raisins, spices, caramel. Light chocolate, citrus.

    Finish: Honey, dried fruits, alcohol, spice. Candied orange peel.

    With Water: Needs a bit to balance the cask strength. Maltier, rich. Can stand up to quite a bit.

    Overall: A lovely whisky. Sweet and rich, with excellent sherry all the way. It’s like dessert for sure. Big and powerful, young but mature.

  4. tribe scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Quite good, but not as balanced as the others, relatively young but with a good basic character from Glendronach.

  5. Ostap scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Whisky without a prelude, immediately goes on the frontal attack and shows himself. Cute, but chaotic.

      Vanilla, peach and apricot, juicy, apricot jam, almond bone, varnish, coconut flakes, coffee with cream, milk chocolate with raisins, frankly sherry, dessert, a huge bunch of different jams, spices, oak, marinade theme, pickled cabbage.
    • Taste

      Juicy sweet, dessert, chocolate, pepper, vanilla, with a pronounced acidity.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Vanilla oak, slightly knitting, sour, medium, tart, bitter taste.

    • Nose
      88 88
      Raisins and brambles, dried fruit with a dusty and tarty edge. Notes of moist fruit cake coming through with sticky dessert cherries. A touch of cinnamon coming through, not much oak on the nose.
    • Taste

      Its on the dried fruits and oranges, what you'd expect from GlenDronach but there's also an unexpected sour and bitter note slipping in.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long, oaky with cinnamon powder. Little sourness coming through as well.
