  5. dongolzo81 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Probably one of the best batches ever if not the best.
    If bottled @ >=48% strength, it would have been a clear 90+ points candidate
    • Nose
      92 92
      Deep and complex profile, raisins, sweet cherry, leather, dusty armchair, dark chocolate, dark roasted sicilian espresso beans, mulled wine spices, well balanced, almost perfectly
    • Taste
      87 87
      Mirroring the nose but much more focus on the spices and oak - dominating sherry cask maturation, a warming bitterness evolving, just lacking a bit of strength
    • Finish
      89 89
      Bitterness vanishing, sweet fruits are taking the lead, cherry with a comeback, some maple sirup, even hints of banana chips, chocolate coated dried fruits

    Remember all! This is no longer done ....
    Really tasty and rich .... maybe the aftertaste is a bit down, but 87 are honest

    Restrained sherry maturation, substantial spirit to begin with, dry and savory sherry bomb. Right up my alley.

    This bottling should actually be 19 years old or more, because of the whole mothballing break of 1996 to 2002.
    To think I bought this malt for 45 euro gives me a good laugh nowadays. And then it gets sadder when I realize I could've gotten at least two more bottles for later. Oh well...
    • Nose
      90 90
      Like most Dronachs, it can be shy and needs time to breathe. Refreshing nose: sultanas, wood polish, pipe tobacco, old paper, resin.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Prunes, chocolate, tarte tatin, dark cane sugar or molasses. Undertones: walnuts, grassy and heathery.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, raw cocoa beans, a bit of more walnuts, light coal smokiness. Grows pleasantly bitter.

  9. alectron scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Single Dram, blind tasting, WUBWS Glendronach Session

    • Taste
      sweet, sherry, caramel, honey (87).
    • Finish
      sweet & malty fade out (85).
