  1. RobbievdB scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Great PX cask! This is probably my favourite PX single cask Glendronach from the 1994 vintage. This whisky makes you sit down for quite some time deciphering what is going on in there. It's body, balance and complexity are quite amazing. You'll get all the 'usual' PX flavors; brown sugar, Dutch 'appelstroop', dried middle Eastern fruits, Christmas cake spices, sweet ripe cherries, nuts and so on. This Glendronach might sit in my top 10-20 of best whiskies tasted.

    woody, glue and varnish, malt, dark chocolate, dry earth, strong coffee, even coffee extract
    concentrated caramel, baked vanilla, baked fruit on the grapes, sweet fig and pastry spices to top it off.
    sweet spices, a little peppery, candied and macerated fruits, a little maderized with a return of cooked wine very sweet with cinnamon, the fruits there on the candied raspberry, the cooked currant, on the black cherries, the dehydrated black grapes, the coffee again, well-impregnated wood, a toasted, oval-flavored, caramelized, almost smoky sensation, and the vanilla bean which has soaked in the custard, all hot scenting the kitchen. spices, Christmas gingerbread and the honey that comes out.
    long, persevering, on sherry, oak, a little leather, dry mushroom (exactly the strip!), dark chocolate spread.
    , a pure moment of delight.

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Jam of strawberries and blackberries (especially blackberries), prunes, caramel, cooked wine. All that makes a big sherry a good sherry. With water, toffee. In the mouth, suspense ... SHERRY. And spices. And woody notes with water. The sherry is not overflowing in the finale that surprisingly reveals cooked fruits such as roasted peach.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    A Glendronach Sherry as I like them ... certainly classic but still good.
    • Nose
      Well it's clearly Sherry, we're not mistaken. It is very greedy on dried fruits (classic), vanilla, caramel, honey ... a real cake home!
    • Taste
      Alcohol well integrated, powerful but not too mixed with spices and caramel. Always as greedy as the nose but a little dry.
    • Finish
      A pretty long Finish that concluded a nice tasting ...

    Nose on cocoa powder, coffee liqueur, a bit winey, and a bit of matches too. On the palate it is powerful, with precious wood, greedy and concentrated, perhaps a touch of alcohol

  7. Jnpons scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Color: a magnificent mahogany robe, coppery reflections.

    Nose: leather, a very present alcohol, fruit, a hint of syrup, wine. A little solvent, small wild strawberries, even sour cherries, chocolate.

    Palate: superb, an explosion of red fruits, woods, very nice balance. Precious wood, a little grain. The spices are present too.

    Overall: on spices and red fruits.

    Comments: an addition of water allows to calm the watt, more appreciable.

  8. Dede scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A very pretty Glendronach. More really my style, but very well done.
    • Nose
      On the nose, coffee, cocoa, raisins, universal glue, brown sugar. Rich and complex, but classic.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, the texture is thick and lines the palate well. Cocoa, black mushrooms, red fruit jam, candied fruit, and the wood that begins to express itself.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, woody and tannic but without astringency. Red fruits are also making a comeback.

  10. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very intense, extreme sherry load, lots of wood. Not the best type of whisky for me personally, but a blatant part.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Lots of chocolate and raisins, fat, musty, bourbon-like glue, furniture polish, acacia honey, burnt-on corn, old wall unit
    • Taste
      87 87
      Creamy and chocolatey, zero dryness, nutty, nutmeg, heat
    • Finish
      87 87
      Creamy, chocolatey, oak bitterness, hardly any dryness
