Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1995
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.66 points
- First milk chocolate, everything a bit rough and a little too young. Would have tolerated a few more years in the barrel! The alcohol is quite well integrated. With a little time and a few drops of water, honey notes, dark fruits, raisins and a little caramel and thus also a bit more rounded and balanced.
- A sip tasted in the evening. Enthusiasm Nose: 3/5 Mouth and finish: 4/5 Whisky n ° 1575
Fairly cereal, me who was waiting for the score "100% was usual". Obviously, quickly caught up with a nice roundness and chocolate notes.
Ultra-greedy! ("that's my boy"!)
Rich and sweet. A soup spoon of nutella!
Fluffy and enveloping
Wave of burnt rubber, cask aroma coming thru slowly with sweetened
smoked bacon chocolate pudding, Complex, salty and sweet with a lot of
muscle behind it. Unusual character.
P- A wonder, with sweet
juicy PX dominating the profile, doses of fresh clove and ripe plum
creates a rich and balance mouthfeel. Just a wee too creamy.
F- Smooth, dry mouthfeel with full spice, a return of cocoa at the tail.

- It is a bit weaker and more restricted on the palate then some other old PX-casks from Glendronach that I've tasted but it is still an absolut cracker.
(Rating interval 87-90)
Classic sherry notes with prunes, raisins and dates, rum-raisin ice cream, sour plum and coffee. Cinnamon and spicy cocoa. Water brings out more sweetness from the nose, wonderful sweet spices.
Sweet prunes and juicy raisins with sour plum at the same time. Cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice comes along. it goes from sweet to sour and then spicy. Water mellows it down but keeps it intact with spices and overall flavor profile.
The finish is long and dry with mixed spices and aromatic oak. Bitter honey, bitter oak and black pepper.
- Nose: Pulsing citrus spice combined with very small amounts of wild mint and oak spice, warming waves of sweet fig syrup. Palate: An initial abundance of sweet chocolate and vanilla moves to a delicate, persistently spicy and tart note. Everything is supported by a fantastically long rumgetänkten finish with raisins and sweet barley
- This malt is a lot better without the addition of water, well; at least the finish is better. But it still quite good! In my opinion...
Neat: Okay, sherry! Chocolate, grass, a little leather and maraschino cherries. Despite this, it’s a very clean and fresh nose. Some marzipan?
With water: Well, more sherry notes and red berries. Less fruity cherries and marzipan. There’s an oily note appearing, like really, really nice sunflower oil? And orange bitter, and some cloves.
Neat: Sweet, fruity, sherry notes. And a nice oily feeling. And of course, some orange bitter?
With water: less fruity and more balanced, concentrated. Easy and beautiful. Not to easy, simplicity is an asset to this particular malt.
Neat: Long, orangey. Sweet, and pleasant. There’s dark chocolate, and flowers. I think it’s roses, but what do I know? And course, sherry notes.
With water: Not quite as long, again less fruit and more wood sour. It kind of disappears without a big finish, without a crescendo. Some red berries as well.
- Producer`s tasting notes:
Colour: Rich golden burnt amber.Nose: Vibrant citrus zest combines with touches of wild mind and oak spice, warming waves of sweet fig syrup.
Palate: An initioal sweet chocolate and vanilla fullness moves to a delicate, lasting zest and herbal note. All backed by a fantastically long rum-soaked raisin and sweet barley finsish
