    • Nose
      Dried fruits, raisins, roasted almonds, plums
    • Taste
      Very oily, mouth-filling onset, dark dried fruits, nuts, astringent spicy, with sherry sweetness
    • Finish
      Warming, full-bodied finish

  2. Xstream scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    The most boring glendronach in my book. Its ok, but even the 8 year old releases are more exciting. Considering its glendronach, one of my favs, its still quite good ofcourse.

  4. z-imaging scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Glendronach Original gets better and better with every batch. Very well balanced really enjoyable whisky.
    • Nose
      Sweet, vanilla, prunes, raisins. With water - more vanilla and less elements from the sherry casks.
    • Taste
      Creamy and smooth, sweet, sherry oak, spices (not too much). Water weakens the body and brings vanilla and more sweetness. Thanks to the 43% it wasn't totally drowned.
    • Finish
      Long, a little spicy at the beginning, warm, not so dry, oaky at the very end. With water still long, spices last longer.
