Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 2003

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.31 points

  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nose:

    A good sherry nose. Leather, raisins, quite some dried red fruit and some honey are here. The nose is nice, but not very complex. With water the nose is getting a bit darker. The nose is the best part of this whisky!Taste:

    It needs water. But without: sweet and sour, some red fruits and then a clear sherry feel.

    With water: Less aggressive, more subtle sweet and sourness. And more red fruits and leather. Body:

    Full and round

    Finish:

    Without water: a bit aggressive, some sweet and sour, hint of tannins but overall the sherry is there.

    With water everything tames down a bit. Price:

    Original shop price was €60,- (pre-sale €52,50 and on the festival €55,-). Prices nowadays are insane. Presentation:

    Just as it should, all the info is on the label.

    Nose: Floral, raisin, sweet flowers

    Taste: Complex, sweet, sugar sirup

    Body: a bit oily, but fades away after a couple of seconds

    Finish: Medium, a little dry, some orange peel looks around the corner.

    Price en presentation: If you were there, you would have bought a bottle. It was a night where the Dutch would say: 'gezellig'. Loved it!
    Still think the price is quite fair.
