Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1991

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.69 points

  1. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Today I'm trying something a bit different. About 4 months ago, I received a bunch of samples of Glendronach single cask bottlings - 7 in all. Casks 1487, 3025, 326, 3397, 1346, 2971, and 494. Let's see how this one tastes.

    Nose is taking time to offer up milk chocolate, some soy sauce notes, some orange zest, and maybe a bit of camphor and a hint of pepper.

    Palate reveals milk chocolate, some citrus, cinnamon, cigar ash.

    Finish carries on from the palate with more chocolate, raisins, cinnamon candies, ash, then some lingering oiliness.

  2. dRambo scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    solid, restrained, very cultivated malt with a very tasty and great fruit-chocolate-spice balance
    • Nose

      mhh where's the nose?

      he has been standing for 15 minutes and almost nothing happens. A drop of water dissolves dry balsamic acid, toasted fresh tree slices, earthy notes, forest floor, orange peel
      once you have it in your mouth your nose gets fuller
    • Taste
      91 91
      Wild berry jam, grated tropical wood, furniture polish, espresso, men's chocolate - very nice smooth mouthfeel, very nicely balanced with spicy, high-quality, clearly venerable old wood aromas.
      If you chew it, you add vanilla, light tree sap, mint, creme brulee - all under a lot of red groats
    • Finish
      90 90
      the finish is medium long and very cultivated and gentle - but brings nothing new apart from powdered sugar with cinnamon cocoa
