Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1995

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points

  1. mister glenfarclas scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Now this is a mature Glendronach. Maybe not the typical oversweeet Glendronach PX sherry and little else bomb. But to be honest, I like it! Awesome!
    • Nose
      Heavy sherry with lots of spices and a kinda herbal, earthy touch. This one has seen lots of oak. Therefore strong tobacco and dark chocolate aromas. However it is more the sweet, zesty pipe tobacco kind.
    • Taste
      What a powerful start. Initially sweet, but spicy at the same time. Some brown sugar and ripe, dark fruits. Typical Glendronach sherry bomb. But accompanied by rich oak at all time. A little bitterness, but just the right amount. Very mature. Again sweet pipe tobaco and a touch of wet leather. Maybe a hint of pepper as well.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet finish. Just a little drieness. Some chewing tobaco left.

    Good nose and not bad in the mouth, but the sharp alcohol note is too much of a good one. Since the alcohol could have been better integrated.
    • Nose
      Beautiful sherry aromas with vanilla and brown sugar over dark fruits. Coffee and dark chocolate and I discovered my light tobacco notes.
    • Taste
      Strong espresso with oranges and dark chocolate. The oak is also quite present. Fruits such as raisins and plums can be found as well as a few spices. But he has a very strong alcoholic sharpness burning on the tongue ...
    • Finish
      Long and strong with lots of espresso and oak.
