Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 2002
21 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.33 points
- A sample as result of the Glendronach tasting.
Nose is fabulous; nice and sweet.
Initial taste is a bit creamy and "thick".
Finish: long and nice
Price: probably the only negative point: prices for Glendronach SC whiskies are sky high.
Sweet fruit, raisins. Somewhat sharp in the beginning, later softer. Something chocolate can be recognized. Nutmeg.
Sherry. Sharp by t ABV. That pepper again. Dark chocolate and some red fruit.
- Good stuff! I especially like the combination of earthy and fruity in this whisky.
If not from the colour, the sherry influence is immediately noticeable from the nose. Sharp initially, but that vanishes quite quickly. What remains is a friendly nose of dried fruit (sultanas, dates), fresh plum compote, orange. Next, there is honey, a slight cereal note, wet wood, some mint and nail polish remover. With water, darker aromas like dunnage warehouse and gravy emerge.
Rather sweet associated, but with some acidity and hardly dry. Extremely jammy and fruity (mainly sultanas, but the plum and pineapple are noticeable). Water brings more balance, with a meaty note, earthy tobacco, cocoa, coffee, and honeyed cereals. There is a slight grassy undertone that works as a "fraicheur".
The finish gets spicier (pepper, clove, cinnamon), and drier than on the palate. It's still within boundaries. The fruit mellows down, the earthy side remains.
