  1. gerrit de guru scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Totally a good deal for the money!
    • Nose
      Cadbury with a hint of sulphur. (not in a bad way)
      Milky, sweet and malty.
    • Taste
      Dangerously drinkable.
      A little dry with raisins and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Short but pleasant.

    Glendronach 8 years, 43% alc.
    Bottler: Lars Wiebers (Whisky manufactory)
    Expansion: Bourbon + Sherrycasks
    Region: Speyside, Scotland

    Special feature: Lars Wiebers got several barrels 8-year-old Glendronach and now fills his own ... batch. These bottlings are available under the label "Whiskymanufaktur" in various whisky shops in Berlin and soon also online.

    Nose: Orange aromas in their most beautiful form, with peaches and apricots. Green apples are also part of the party. Behind, the fruits are a bit more mature, a hint of raspberry in vanilla cream appears. After a while, half caramelized sugar and raisins are added.

    Palate: Fruity with apricot and clear sherry influence, the single painting is creamy and mouth-filling, it tingles slightly on the palate. In addition, citrus fruits come in malt, and he has already got some wood for 8 years (spices, tannins).

    Finish: Long and balanced, fruity and pleasant. The oak only tickles and is not too heavy yet.

    Conclusion: Wow, I like better than the original bottling. Suitable for all connoisseurs.

  3. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Solid young Dronach. Rumors say it is made from leftovers of the 8 yo Octarine. But cannot confirm, did not have them H2H. Anyhow, fun story.

  4. Ivynor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Okay but nothing more, a whisky nicknamed, and a little too young.
    82+ / 83 -
    • Nose
      a little animal, quite young, lively, with lots of caramel, coffee, a little chocolate, raisin.
    • Taste
      Pretty sweet, but not greedy, on raisins, wood, a little coffee and still caramel. End of mouth more vegetal
    • Finish
      quite long, a little dry, with a lot of wood

  5. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Caramel, a little alcohol felt, made young, a touch of sulfur and vanilla. Still a little alcohol on the palate, woody, sweet raisins but again it is a little too aggressive and immature. Always too much alcohol in the final, not terrible at all.

  6. tomy63 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Deep gold color, very young nose on brown sugar, caramel, fruit cake, vanilla, raisins. Mouth sweet, easy, too sweet, very caramel. Short final, some spices and more.

  7. Glenfarclas1887 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A wonderfully fruity summer whisky. The taste reflects the nose very clearly. Despite the young age already very harmonious in the taste. No miss notes - a great bottling of Jack Wiebers.

    Points: 87/100
    • Nose
      A fruity mix of orange and apricot, vanilla, raisins in alcohol, light sherry and marzipan. Despite the age already very round and balanced.
    • Taste
      Fruity start with the glendronach - typical orange note, very creamy, raisins and a delicate bitterness of the European oak.
    • Finish
      Medium-long and tingling in the throat with a light dryness and chocolate note.

  9. pEpp0 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    I tried him in direct comparison to the 8yo Octraine by Glendronach. The color is 100% the same. The situation is similar in taste. Slight differences in nose and finish. Blind, I think it's hard to keep them apart.
    • Nose
      It has more of the Sherry keg than the Bourbon keg, fresh, young, metallic, lots of orange, distillery vanilla and ginger, light oak on tap, later hints of dark fruit, round
    • Taste
      fresh start, fresh fruit, more orange, clear sherry, the alcohol very well integrated, prickling tongue
    • Finish
      Dry than the 8 years suggest, but quite a barrel, dark chocolate, light spicy and spicy
