  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A good CS sherried whisky. It used to be around €65,- prices go up, but it is still good price/quality. In the same range of Glengoyne CS.

      This has a clear sherry nose. There is chocolate, leather and has a burst of dried red fruit. It is quite well made. I assume with water it will turn a bit better. With water it get indeed better, not that the notes will be different, but the alcoholic nip will go.

      Sweet, a little bit on the alcohol side. But clearly sherry notes. It is not a bomb, but it is rather close to it. The obvious sherry notes are in here, so red fruit, leather. This is a little on the sour side though.

      Medium-long finish. A bit nutty and slightly bitter. But overall again a clear sherried whisky.

  4. Erik1908 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I believe this bottle was part of a Glendronach tasting with my friends. Pretty good and typical Glendronach profile. But not as good as the single casks I have tasted so far.
    • Nose
      Typical sweet and sherried Glendronach profile. I added some water to loosen up things. Tropical fruit. Herbal notes as well
    • Taste
      Warm mouth feeling. Full bodied. Combination of fruity sweetness and spicy notes that make the tongue tickle.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish. Sherry sweetness and spices remain together till the end. in the very end quite dry.

    This one is all about the sherry. Lots of fruit with an underpinning of spicy, bitter orange and chocolate. Some vanilla makes an appearance in there too. Easy drinker and very enjoyable.

    Young and sprightly - Definitely under 10 years on average - no not my kind of whisky - Blind at the Chatstammtisch from a clean Sniffter of Raccoon

  10. Kaleva scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Great whisky, very well done. Quite complex (as for NAS) sherried nose, very pleasant palate. Superbly balanced with typical Glendronach profile. Easy going even on the full strength but releases more notes and gets more vivid after adding water
    • Nose
      Sweet, creamy, honeycomb, sherry, yellow overripe apples, dried fruits (apricots and sultanas), roasted almonds, sweet oranges, herbal notes and more sherry after adding water
    • Taste
      Sweet, spicy (peppers, ginger), caramel, honey, dried fruits (figs and apricots), cinnamon butterscotch, fudge, a touch of bitter oak, orange zest, nuts
    • Finish
      Long, warm, getting dry, spicy, nutty, slightly malty, dried fruits, bitter herbs notes
