Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 15-year-old Revival

18 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.11 points

  1. MaltMusketeers did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    A seriously good whisky for the original price (£43 approx), if you see this in your local whisky bar and it’s not a crazy price, we highly recommend getting yourself a dram.

    Very difficult to find in retail shops but expect to pay upwards of £140 or variable prices at auction, from £85 - £130. The new Glendronach 15 is due for release in 2018/19, we can only hope that it’s as good as the Revival.

    • Nose
      Instant Christmas cake and heavily sherried fruits, muscovado sugar, toffee, zingy chocolate orange, old leather – like an old brief case, polish, subtle hints of peat if you look closely (usually after a bottle is half finished and sat for a few weeks)
    • Taste
      Very rich, fruity oil, lots of treacle, toffee, dark chocolate, coffee, muscovado sugar, toasted oak and nuts with dried winter fruits. A decent amount of spice and cloves, hints of cinnamon and sugary honey.
    • Finish
      Quite long and lingering, spices with an orange tang, complex, more Christmas cake, dried dates and raisins.

  2. LordBellamy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Water: a few drops make it much more harmonious and softer

    Conclusion: The nose is initially a bit disappointing, also by the slight sulfuric touch, but in the taste and finish it explodes, even if it could be a bit voluminous. However, this is a modern sherry whisky, which has nothing of the elegance of old sherry bottlings from the 90s.

    Why this hype about these bottlings? Yes, he's older than the 15y, he has a lot of sherry ... but that's about it.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Olorososherry with light sulfur notes, slightly sourish, figs, dried dates, burnt caramel, hazelnut, clear oak notes with carnations and cardamom, blackberry syrup and dark chocolate, alcohol content fits
    • Taste
      87 87
      a great start, a mega-load of sherry, soft, caramel, plum, figs, dates, spices
    • Finish
      86 86
      long and intense, again lots of sherry, caramel, hazelnuts, nougat, chocolate, oak

    Sublime !
    • Nose
      More expressive sherry nose than the 12 year old. Strong in oranges and some leather.
    • Taste
      The classic sherry experience but with a thicker entry. Honey sweetness and oranges. Spiced but not burning. Very smooth and a little smoke.
    • Finish
      Good sweet and spicy finish.

  6. zerttbone did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    This whisky is the best buy/price and still the 18 and 21years old must come to more age stats in 2019 and 2022 before they go to real age again.

     the mothballed years

    I didn't like it as much initially, but it oxidises pretty well.

    Currently about 2 months into the bottle, will give update once it peaks.
