  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Typical Glendronach. It’s Just good at what is does best! Sherry matured whisky which is not completely taken over by the cask.
    • Nose
      A lot of Milk chocolate, red fruit punch, sherry and a hint of wood. Quite a lot of alcohol at first, adding water and give it a little time and it eases down and a nice whisky appears. Initialy i would say it’s not really my thing. After time it is!
    • Taste
      Well rounded, little waxy. quite mature for a 12yo. Soft, smooth. Great taste. Again lots of milk chocolate and red fruits.
    • Finish
      Pleasant! Very pleasant. It’s Smooth and soft! Silky feeling stays behind. Milk chocolate comes through again and keeps you company for quite a while. Medium-long finish.

    Not too sweet young spry PX with pleasant balances.
    • Nose
      Big sherry, forest fruits, peach jam, orange peel, ginger, honey and antique leather.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Sherry, forest fruits, rum raisin, Verbena candies and orange peel.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity, bittersweet.

  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Got this one from a sampleswap with Erik1908. I agree this is very expensive, but still cheap compared with the even more ridiculous prices GD's!

    Anyhow, this is a very good sherry bomb!
    • Nose
      91 91
      A very dense nose, savory, leather, thick red syrup. I like this very much. There is wood polish and shoe cream in the background. This is a kind of nose I appreciate much!

      A little on the alcohol side. But this is quite a sherry bomb. I like this taste. It is full on sherry with dried red fruit. shoe polish. Tobacco and wet leather. With water it gets better, the alcohol nip will go away
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long length. With a lot of these sherry bombs it is bitter. not this one. There is quite some fruityness and a lot of the taste notes will be found here too.

  5. Erik1908 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Bought this bottle at the price of 88 Euro. Quite expensive, but cheap compared to the current ridiculous price level of SC Glendronach bottles.

    Nose is excellent; lot of sweetness.

    Taste: heavy/strong. A few drops of water makes things a bit milder and better.

    Finish: medium long, but it somewhat dies out and fades away.

  9. Shane_IL scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tasted at a Malt Mongers Israel evening.

    This was surprisingly herbal in character, quite different from the very common 1995 PX Single Casks with a lot more of the distillate character coming through, lovely stuff.

    • Nose

    • Finish
      Long. Dark fruits. Dunnage. Prunes. Bitter grape juice.
