  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Good value for money, a pleasant easy-to-drink introductory smoker for every day.
    However, personally I consider a peated malt to be superfluous at GD, the still has its strengths elsewhere - "cobbler, stick to your last"
    • Nose
      Very sweet, medium smoke, vanilla, buttery toffee, a trace of acetic acid
    • Taste
      Creamy and soft, smoky, fleshy, fully ripe Jonagold apples, fresh apple mint
    • Finish
      Very sweet and extremely tasty, smoky and medium long

  3. rottendon scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A little too young but well balanced, completely uncomplicated beginner dram, whose price is probably a bit too high. Very interchangeable, you would not think blindly at Glendronach. Shoemaker stick to your last? Rather not, he will surely find his lover, who will probably not come from the majority of the camp of the Distillery fans, and thus he would have fulfilled his task for the marketers already. For my part: Nice to have tried him, he does not come to my shelf.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruity, pears and limes, little smoke, slightly phenolic, grain and malt, vanilla. After a little longer caramel and less fruit notes. The phenolic in the smoke has disappeared, actually all the smoke is almost completely suppressed. When heated, a few sherry tunes actually come in, but only very discreetly. Overall, he looks very sweet now. A distinct marshmallow note with delicate acidity now dominates. The alcohol tickles clearly in the nose.
    • Taste
      Not as sweet as the nose can expect, light honey, a slight harshness and grassy notes dominate, overall very tasty. Towards the rear, a not unpleasant bitterness develops, which however is slightly metallic.
    • Finish
      The finish is more on the short side, only a touch of ash remains a little longer on the tongue.

  4. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    a young, pleasant medium-smoking whisky that could have come from everywhere. The sherry has at best left some sweet notes here and probably served as a color donor. Kind. In a beginner's tasting as an introduction to smoky whiskys conceivable.
    • Nose
      rather lightly smoky, cold ashes, tart sherry influence, some fresh plums, sweet vanilla, some grass, not too bad
    • Taste
      honey sweet, pleasant, not intrusive smoke level, slightly salty, not to feel the trace of sherry here.
    • Finish
      medium long, sweet and slightly peaty.

  6. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      subtle, sweet smoke with a recognizable citrus note; Malt, has something of heath; fresh herbal notes, sweet vanilla
    • Taste
      Sweet, light smoke; sweet again; Sherry, light spices
    • Finish
      slight smoke, which, however, makes the mouth dry anyway. slightly metallic note, then comes again fruit, then flat but also everything. Overall, a bit short.

  7. HW74 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I actually like it quite well, although the new bottlings are not quite my "Glendronach nerve" meet.

  8. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Thick, moist peat, a touch of vegetation. Behind, vanilla reflections and mango juice due to aging in bourbon barrels. Mirabelles and queen claudes.
    On the palate, it is a bit young on the other hand, metallic, smoky, the vanilla struggles to make its way. Relative balance. Final that tears off slightly, chalky and that leaves an aftertaste of ash and tobacco.

  10. Cheng Chee Kaan scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Nose: A very singular, typical Highland smoke. Vanilla sweetness, sharp bourbon notes, almost zero sherry influence.

    Palate: Sweet arrival, with a smoke blanket, sweet candy, liquorice. Quite spirity. Become even sweeter after a few sips. Vanilla and creamy.

    Finish: Medium to long, spirity finish, with some nuttiness.

    Balance: There is not much up and down, which is a good thing. However, nothing stands out as well.
