  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 89 points Moderator

    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

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

    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.

    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.
