Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 24-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.31 points

  1. VicLin scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    The palate does not match the nose. A little bit boring to be honest. Not a bad dram at all but at this quality it's overpriced. I'd rather buy 3 bottles of Parliaments.

    producer's notes (by Billy Walker):

    Appearance:  Glistening burnt amber holds a rich crimson heart.

    Nose:  A magnificent combination of honey-drenched dates and succulent raisins which gently ebb and flow with waves of delicate orange blossom, mint and cracked black pepper. Hints of glazed cherries and toasted almonds perfectly complement the seductive nose – a nose to be appreciated slowly and often. 

    Palate:  A fabulously full-bodied, vibrant palate captures a multitude of classic sherry cask characteristics. The delicate sweetness of rum-soaked golden sultanas refines rich espresso, dark chocolate and treacle toffee. Zesty orange oil softens to a deep clove spice and prolongs the ever-changing palate. A sublime example of understanding the relationship between cask and single malt perfectly. 

    Conclusions: The Grandeur 24 Years Old encapsulates the perfect harmony of exquisite sherry oak casks, masterful maturation and traditional crafted Highland single malt. A dram to be savoured in order to reveal the depth of dramtic flavours held in the glass. A truly memorable and captivating GlenDronach expression.
