  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A pleasing malt in the nose and mouth, which shows the PX influence. However, the aromas collapse very quickly in the finish, I would have expected more here. Not a bad malt, but with a view to the Glendronach 21J Parliament, for example, the one mentioned seems to me to be the much better choice, and so this is a bit "superfluous" for me.
    • Nose
      87 87
      sweet and fruity; Raisins; Dates; Plum jam; Apple sauce with cinnamon; Canned pears; some carnation; Vanilla; Chocolate; delicate spicy oak; the sweet PX influence is noticeable
    • Taste
      86 86
      mild and voluminous; Dried fruits; Plums; a hint of oranges; Raisins; dark chocolate; slightly nutty; delicate oak flavor in the transition to the finish becoming slightly tart
    • Finish
      84 84
      tingly tart oak flavor; delicate notes of dried fruit; Bitter chocolate; Hints of tobacco and leather; fades quite quickly for age

    - a great glendronach
    - unfortunately only available as a miniature (and then too expensive in relation to the 21st Parliament)
    - super gentle and delicious
    - in the end maybe a little "power" or volume is missing (but a matter of taste)
    • Nose
      sweet, fruity first impression, raisins, mild, dark berries, honey, light spice, in the smell it is hardly recognizable that it "only" has a sherry finish and no full maturation, very pleasant
    • Taste
      very mild, soft appearance, super elegant, mild and very harmonious, juicy sweet fruits, raisins, you can literally taste old age, oily, tobacco, very complex, in the end there is spice and oak, becomes a bit bitter
    • Finish
      soft medium length finish;
      long oak-heavy, dry aftertaste

    • Nose
      88 88
      Oak, furniture polish, dried fruit, especially dried apricots, of course Mals, clearly ripe nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet dried fruit, certainly old sherry barrel, very slightly chocolatey, very slightly sour, again malt, little alcohol and oak.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Not so long, spicy, a little oak, a little bland and quickly gone.

  4. schengel10 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A noble, old, mature malt - unusual for GlenDronach as a PX finish, but still a top whisky.

    • Taste
      powerful, sparkling, fruity, raisins, dates, sherry, nuts, vanilla, tobacco, coffee, spices, oak, ripe, oily, complex;
    • Finish
      good medium length, spicy, slightly tart, pipe tobacco, coffee, oak;

  5. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Aroma:
    Typical but not penetrative sherry nose with dried fruit: dates, figs, raisins and sweet sherry aromas. Some oak and vanilla.

    Taste:
    Light spice and tingle, warm wood notes then fruity sherry aromas, dried fruit.
    Sweet, fine oak notes, touch of dark chocolate, light barrel / coffee note.

    finish:
    Dark, delicately tart with fine oak notes, slightly spicy but also soft,
    tartly sweet and slightly fruity with sherry, a hint of orange, slightly sweetish.

  9. Lorion scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Delicious, but not competitive, if you consider the competition from your own home. 83 points.
    • Nose
      Sweet dates, vanilla and caramel. Discreet sherry character, subtle nuts. Oak is seasoning with gradually.
    • Taste
      Full, almost a bit tingling. Sweet wood. Malt. Dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium long, fruity and sweet. Chocolate.
