Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1995

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

  1. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Rich sherry dominates the nose, in true Glendronach style, but with more of the heavy, meaty notes than I'd normally like. A nice touch of butterscotch and Murray mints keeps this interesting though. There is also a hint of something edgy/bitter (possibly metallic) that I don't normally associate with the best single cask bottlings from this source. Remarkably consistent transition to the palate, where again savoury meaty notes and a metallic edge are present alongside the fruity sherry and floral base spirit. Long, fruity finish that lingers beautifully on the back of the tongue. Not one of the best mid-90s Glendronach single casks then, in my humble opinion (some I've tried have been stellar), but certainly pleasant to spend some time with in its own way.

  2. Thermidor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Throughout the 6 or so months the bottle was open I couldn't find a right reduction level to get rid of the noticeable and persistent bitter oranges aroma and taste that seems to be a marker for this cask and prevents it from being one of the truly great ones in this series.

    I had this one, 54, 3273 and 444 open successively with quite a bit of overlap and although I really liked each and every one I'd say qualitywise they're 54 > 3273 > 444 > 3250.
