Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 2002

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.46 points

  1. WillemvdK scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A very unique bottling. The nose has pine and coconut, which is quite rare. It's very oaky, almost like a bourbon. But that shouldn't suprise anyone when using virgin oak.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very special cask to say the least.
    • Nose
      A whole pine forest at the start. Am I in Yosemite?
      It really needs to breathe for a while for other notes to show up: caramel, candied orange, cactus, green lime peel, brown sugar and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Pine needles, cinnamon, toffee, orange, cranberry, eucalyptus and green washing up liquid. After a while some whipped cream on top.
    • Finish
      Toffee, pine needles, cinnamon, brown sugar and lime peel.

  5. Allandale scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Unusual : in a Virgin Oak this time.

    Lovely
    • Nose
      Bananas, apricots, mango and a hints of plum.

      At the end notes of eucalyptus.
    • Taste
      Biscuits, vanilla,toffee, lots of fruit flavours followed by more fruit.

      Dry slightly peppery, herbal and mouth filling
    • Finish
      Very long finish
