  2. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    ‘For bourbon fans, this is going to be right on the money’

    N: It could be even be sherry!, but theres more. Orange and lemon cake decorating segments, buttered pancakes, whole prunes [in a light syrup], fig rolls, leather hide food, black treacle, corn oils and non descriptor floral and earthy notes over a sherried-toasted-smokiness go into making this an enjoyable, adventure of a nose.

    T: Thats an immediate alcohol hit alright but it doesn’t grow bigger after that, only its potency sustains for a long while.  The arrival is rushed and the flavours so intense, its hard to distinguish them individually.Adding water [recommended] provides what i recognise as rye whisky territory, most closely resembling Thomas H Handy and also Blantons [Gold & Silver] for example. Lots of fruits on offer, very much sherried & bourbon stylistics in equal measure.

    F: After a long and sustaining build theres a marked drop off in intensity. A touch of BBQ rub to the finish, but only a hint, nothing like Texas Brimstone. More pronounced are the fruits and toasted corn oils that swirl around for ages making for a wonderful US style refrain. 

    C: Most of the complexity is held by the nose.  What follows is a hard punchy performance from high calibre spirit and casks. Very clean, almost clinical and hard to fault but some will prefer the softer, more elastic complexities of the 15 Revival, and remember that this expression is still young even for Glendronach. For bourbon fans, this is going to be right on the money

    Scores a B+
