  1. RobbievdB scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    So I have this bottle open for a year and half and it’s due to be finished. This Glendronach benefits from airtime and will improve month after month. It remains a tad sharp in both nose and taste, but with a drop of water it turns nice sweet and fruity. It gives you toffee, cherry, oranges, nuts and some dry leaves aroma’s. I bought a second bottle just before they sold out. At €70 a no-brainer.

    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweet fruitiness, rather sparkling, cherries, powdered candy, sweet oranges, canned tangerines, some butterscotch, brown sugar, nutty and a whiff of furniture polish.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The alcohol is nicely integrated. It takes some water easily, though doesn't necessarily need a lot. Much more spiciness than the nose has to offer, leather and slight notes of tobacco, bitter chocolate, still some cherries, grapefruit and juicy orange, also pepper and bitter tannines, but nothing too much.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long: a short burst of bitter fruits, mild notes of liquorice, some dark chocolate and coffee, ending on drying oak wood.

  10. The_Independent scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    For my taste, a comparatively weak filling of the GlenDronach Single Cask series.
    The whisky is only in a small glass to advantage, otherwise it is quite fast too thin. At the same time, the taste and finish are dominated by strong bitterness notes from the (European) oak, which unfortunately are not integrated into other sherry flavors.
    • Nose
      86 86
      In a small glass develop very beautiful, sweet sherry flavors, butter cake, honey, toffee, caramelized sugar, vanilla.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Short sweet, then quickly bitter-sweet, sweet sherry, pastries, dusty wood, bitter oak notes, spicy aromas, clear espresso. Unfortunately neither creamy nor voluminous.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium long, bitter espresso, still slightly dusty, woody spiciness. Somehow thin, by no means full-bodied.
