  1. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    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.

  8. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    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!
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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 ...
    • Finish
      Extremely long, Espresso, Ritter Sport Edelbitter.

    • Finish
      Rather below average for those from 03/15/1993

  10. OJK scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    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.
