  1. Ostap scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Spring 2015:
    Definitely enjoyed it, good job. Expectations were much higher. Again, perhaps the "miniature effect".
    • Nose
      Perceptibly dessert, raisins, waffles, dates, candied wild berries, plum jam, sweet tobacco, chocolate, coffee "Three in one" with the aroma of hazelnut, figs and oriental sweets, barely mineral, sherry, dried fruits, mint cold, cherry jam, grapefruit. The aroma unfolds beautifully, gradually, step by step.
    • Taste
      Delicious, not as dessert-like as expected from the aroma, voluminous, juicy, salty-sweet, with spices and delicious pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium, peppery, with notes of smoked meat, moderately dry.

    • Nose

    • Taste
      sweet and bitter at the same time, spicy, dark chocolate and coffee, slightly fruity
    • Finish
      sues with caramel, vanilla and sherry, a bit spicy

  6. Jordanite scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Thanks to the fact that the old GlenDronach miniature sets are still available online, one can try the legendary, old 15yo Revival in 2019 without having to pay exorbitant, "discontinued" prices. The nose is astonishingly complex. Of course the Oloroso is big, with sultanas, spices, and an impressive creaminess, far more than its older brother, the 18. There is also marzipan, candied orange peel, some kind of mineral/earthiness, traces of smoke even.The exemplary creaminess continues on the palate, where the sweet fruits (almost cherry liqueur), gentle oak and spices all mingle together.The finish is also long, enjoyable and high quality. I'm still no sherry bomb fan, but this is undeniably an excellent whisky.

  10. Astrid scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    What else can I say? Consistently convincing and very balanced. I will not take his 15 years off - he is older!
    • Nose
      fruity sherry is already in the air when opening the bottle, lots of vanilla, candied orange peel and chocolate chocolates, a hint of smoke, spicy oak, chocolate-salty caramel and brown candy, cinnamon and clove and nutmeg, banana syrup and coconut flakes, sweet Plum jam, dried fig, almost ripe blueberries, blackcurrant liqueur, roasted almonds, dried cherries from a muesli ready-made mixture, occasionally aniseed, oily, after a while sulfur and old leather get through
    • Taste
      pleasant tingling spicy start, full of fruity full sherry, nutmeg, beautiful oak, again slightly smoky in the background noise, truffle and milk chocolate, slightly bitter oak wood coffee, hazelnut cream, raisins and prunes, very full-bodied
    • Finish
      a lot of oak, cinnamon and clove, long and warm, slightly darker or nutty Oloroso, cocoa, prunes, light pepper, smoke is still present in traces, towards the end always dry with extremely dark aromas

  12. Jimjam did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Complex and interesting sherried whisky. Develops in the glass. Very enjoyable and rewarding. A miniature is too short to get its full measure - I’ll need to come back to this one
    • Nose
      Green grass, fresh orange fruit, prunes, chocolate
    • Taste
      Sherry, oak, marzipan, deep orange fruitiness
    • Finish
      Long fruit and wood
