Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 15-year-old
11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.63 points
- Color: Tawny Nose: Immediately after pouring some wine vinegar comes through, luckily this disappears immediately. Although no sherry cask Glendronach comes through well. A nice round fruit cocktail of raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. A ripe, juicy apple is added. A bit of milk chocolate and a bit of coffee. Palate: gently and mildly it lays on the tongue, almost creamy. The fruit cocktail dominates. Also of the chocolate is still something. Resonance: Somewhere between short and medium long. The sweetness of the fruits remains. Conclusion: Nice, tasty everyday dram. Meanwhile, the second bottle I emptied. Buy more? No! The current prices do not match what this Glendronach brings with it.
- Tasting Notes:
- One thing in advance: It is an honest malt. Non-colored, decent alcohol content as a flavor carrier and not cool filtered. Actually everything that makes the heart of a whisky purist beat faster. Thanks to its "middle" age, the interplay between distillery character and barrel character can be very balanced. Anyone who has ever been to visit GD can very quickly determine the spice of the spirit when first smelling. Dark fruits, some dark chocolate and fine nuances of leather are clearly recognizable in this malt. Duchaus worth a pint, but it clearly differentiates itself from the typical sherry malts of this distillery.
- Not quite as round as the 18-year-old successor, but sweet and fruity and not too much wood.
My mother-in-law just smelled the glass and thought it was a port. I can confirm that ostensibly comes first to the typical Port wine, contrary, fruity and sweet with raspberry, overall very creamy with white chocolate, slightly nutty, like a nut milk ice, in addition to darker fruit in the background, such as prunes, very dark and almost spicy, slightly peppery, tingling in the nose
directly sweet, creamy, but very liquid, very fruity, again raspberry, sweetened, white chocolate, slightly alcoholic, almonds, also here a bit spicy in the background, slightly woody, the drinking strength is quite pleasant and does not look watered down
still very fruity and sweet, and here again some pepper, a tart touch comes to it, a little oak, woody, but subtle, the fruit predominates, lingers for a long time
Alcohol, some pepper, orange, lime, port, grapes, brown sugar, salt?!?, More Port and dark fruits and cloves
Orange, port, grapes, a sweetish note - honey ?, more port and dark fruits and something spicy so towards clove, with nutmeg, beautifully harmonious
clear Portaromen, milk chocolate, mouth-filling, sweet dark fruit, black pepper, roasted walnuts
- I'm not the biggest fan, but I is a fine whisky.
Candied and fruity with a dash of fresh oranges and candied lemon. After a while dried red fruit appears, and even some soy. There's a spirity veil that subtracts a bit from what is otherwise a pleasant nose.
Quite spicy with more than its fair share of black pepper. Also some horse radish. Somewhat syrupy with cherries and blackcurrants, as well as a small amount of treacle.
Spicy with dried red fruits. Medium in length.
- In the nose, the port is clearly visible. However, the mouthfeel makes a different experience, no sweetness, which one actually imagines as in a sherry finish. Somehow salty and not round, which continues in the finish. Bourbon 3rd Fill followed by a short port wine fish to tickle some more flavor? One does not know However, this malt can not suffice the revival and the others from the Corerange. The malt is not round and has rough edges, which gets cleaned even after repeated tasting. He lacks a bit of harmony but still an interesting experience if you want to explore the Brennreicharakter.
- Dirtier than the finely balanced 18er Tawny Port of Glendronach. Not bad, but no comparison to the great Sherryfassreifungen. 84/100
Dirty in the first impression. Sulfur, including roasted cereals. Some incense is added, including exotic fruits, grapefruit and toffee.
In the taste then much more balanced. Strong with notes of colored pepper, roasted peanuts and cloves. Again toffee and some lavender.
medium, a slight bitterness persists.
