  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    tasty whisky, with some intense treats
    the nose builds up some tension
    The mouth has some intense notes with decreasing tension and a slight alcoholic touch
    the departure is completely lacking in tension

      in the background vanilla and glue note
    • Taste
      spicy sweet
      raisin chocolate

      a warm, almost smoky burning sensation in the throat

    Very convenient but personally I'm not too much into butterscotch - however, I noticed that many WB bottlings go into butterscotch - somebody at WB must like it
    • Nose
      89 89
      Caramel, toffee, butterscotch, also some dried fruits, sherry wood
    • Taste
      90 90
      Oily, good sweetness, more toffee, spices, little nutmeg
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium long, warm, smooth

    fine example of GlenDronach. Those Oloroso single casks aged 16-24 yrs rarely go wrong.

  8. knopfler99 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    personally too sweet and the alcohol note bothers me a bit, I did not try it with water. Otherwise, however, a very neat Glendronach.
    • Nose
      91 91
      First, raisins, dried plums and pickled (rum) cherries, a light alcohol touch rising in the nose, in the background is still some caramel
    • Taste
      89 89
      very strong onset, a certain sharpness in the mouth, brown sugar, spiciness - again, the slight alcohol note, salivation and a violent sweetness comparable to brown sugar candy. In the background a light woody bitterness.
    • Finish
      85 85
      strong sweetness on the finish, reminiscent of (Ricola Swiss herbal tea (Gut'Nacht tea granules), light bitterness, dried herbs, and a certain sharpness, the alcohol note remains here., First strong finish, but then he tilts quickly back down.

  9. p4blo scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    1993 is said to be THE vintage for Glendronach. This one fully proves it.
    • Nose
      Violets, coffee beans, anise, tobacco. It's quite herbal too. A touch of rubber, balsamico, soy sauce, orange. Quite an unusual combination for Glendronach, but it works really well.
    • Taste
      Very round, no rough edges. Slightly sweet on milk chocolate, caramel, prunes and raisins. The typical profile of PX Glendronach with no off notes, nice structure and good complexity and intensity.
    • Finish
      Quite long, more chocolate liqueur and strawberries.
