Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 2003

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. ViiniWinnie scored this whisky 88 points Newbie

    Appearance: medium+ amber

     

    Aroma: Orange zest, marmalade, ripened apple, red plum, semi-ripened apricot, cinnamon, sweet spices, vanilla, sponge cake, lightly peppery, apple crumble, butterscotch, hint of cardamom and nectarine. Very complex and attractive sweet fruit aromas appear first, then gradually with spices, coffee and 50% dark chocolate and some cedar appearing. Very comfortable and smooth nosing that you will not expect it is over 55% abv.

     

    Palate: Medium body, dry with a lot of spices and pepper. Ripened apple, apple zest, red plum, dark plum, vanilla, oak, apple crumble, dark coffee, 50% dark chocolate, hint of nectarine, cardamom, raisin and dry fruit. A bit strong alcoholic and warm feeling for the throat.

     

    Aftertaste: Medium long length. Dark coffee, 50-70% dark chocolate, dry burnt wood, dry fruit and raisin, hint of apple zest, vanilla and cedar

     

    As a 12yo whisky, its performance is really nice especially on the aroma that is really complex and well structured. You can feel from palate that this is still young but it has already shown lots of characters and complexity in the drink. If I have to criticize that would be the slightly strong alcoholic feeling in palate, and would be much better if the body can be more round in mouth. It will still require some more time to open up. Anyways, this is a very nice selection by Kenny Hsu in spite of such a young age of GlenDronach. I do appreciate very much and I believe so does his son in the future!
