Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1993
26 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.60 points
- Retasting after 1 year with below half bottle level: the sulfur is completely gone, even more intense chocolate and cherry compote. Madness! Also in the mouth no German lost to Bumms, a force. Points today Feburary 2015: 93 (something will hardly be found ...)
intense, explosive, infinite, oily creamy mixture of chocolate and cherries - pulsating, balanced, crystalline, brilliant clean aromas, floral, flawless.
- This one won a gold medal (there were 11 gold medals) and the title "Best sherried Whisky" in the "Ultra Premium Category" at the 2016 Malt Maniacs Awards. It got a overall score of 90 points. The single judges scored between 83 and 94.
- If someone is looking for a "sherry supernova": this is him ...
- an example of an extremely full Glendronach, but not drifting into the total Sherry overloaded. Lots of cherry and chocolate, round and delicious. However, here is water for opening duty!
Pure: massive sherry wall through which initially no getting through is, some fruit, light cherry flavors, that's it. With water: completely different world, now fruity chocolate flavors, caramel, spicy wholemeal bread, a hint of sulfur as a spicy note, leather and cherry compote. Complex and very solid.
Pure: quite spicy, but extremely intense, as high as the alcohol strength, is also the intensity level, With water: strong tannins, also here a lot of bitter cocoa, cola ice, slightly minty fresh, full-bodied and yummy. Pancakes with Nutella and cherry filling. Too cool to be true ...
Extremely long, Espresso, Ritter Sport Edelbitter.
Rather below average for those from 03/15/1993
- Intense cherry, chocolate, smoke and pine sap on the nose, with eucalyptus, leather and wood polish. Dense and oily on the palate with cinnamon and toffee, citrus honey and herbal smoke, wood varnish. Slightly more bitter with chalk and vegetal notes creeping in on the finish along with black pepper and toffee. It has a slightly rougher edge than the more elegant cask 33, but remains an impressively rich and dense dram with wonderful complexity. It’s testament to the Glendronach distillate that it can remain so expressive and nuanced despite such heavy sherry.
