  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Tastes and feels young, and isn't in my opinion totally ready, but I prefer this to Glenfarclas of similar age, since this one is fattier, rounder and less grassy to me.

    Thanks to member Waykid for the sample!
    • Nose
      Some yeast in water and a fattiness that helps round it. Some smoke of a dry, kiln-like style, and a medium sherry touch, much lighter than I thought it would have, but then again when I think back on the CS releases versus the single casks my expectations were wrong. There is some sawdust and a dry, spicy note. Yeast, sawdust, spices... sure this isn't Wolfburn?
    • Taste
      The softness of the body surprises me. Sure, it's 46 %, but a young whisky from 2010s that's neither sharply boozy nor watery, or overly yeasty? I'm impressed. Marabou chocolate, something coppery, some highland peat, and sugar. It could stand to have a more definite profile, but then on the other hand it doesn't have any overdone finish either, which is a plus.
    • Finish
      Short, sweet, oily, and sugary.

  3. Malthead19 scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    - fully successful for an 8 year old whisky
    - not as intense in sherry flavor as the older ones
    Vintages but still drinkable and presentable
    - for around €40 you can't go wrong, but I'd rather spend a few euros more and buy the 12-year-old ORIGINAL
    • Nose
      fruity, light sherry aroma
    • Taste
      on the palate a fruity, slightly stronger attack, very pleasant and aromatic for 8 years, fresh grapes
    • Finish
      short exit ; but long fruity aftertaste, grape taste (dry red wine or grappa)

    • Nose
      81 81
      The smell is very faint, you can't even really smell the alcohol. But sherry, dried fruit, some vanilla and nuts come through.
    • Taste
      86 86
      A taste that you wouldn't expect at all after the weak nose, strong notes of spices, lots of nuts, vanilla, malt and some wood, as well as very little lemon.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is not bad either, long-lasting, warm, full of spices, unfortunately vanilla and nuts disappear far too quickly.

  5. Titanicus scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Smells sugary sweet, a little musty but also fresh, wet wood, overripe apples; taste is peppery spicy, vanilla sweet, not very fruity; finish is quite good, spicyness builds up and fades nicely; it's an ok whisky, really like the silky texture with water, just nothing special

  6. LDB scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    The Hielan isn't really bad, but it's not really good either. Slightly reminiscent of the Benromach 5yo, which is better in comparison.
    • Nose
      Fresh young wood and some burnt caramel with a touch of old-school Pattex, also cider (although the slightly moldy apple cider variety)
    • Taste
      First pleasant malt, then meditonsin meets bitters. Hmm, it doesn't taste like Glendronach, but it's still OK for 8 years.
    • Finish
      Becoming more and more sour, very faintly some smoke.

    Shows Glendronach can be good at younger age, without overly relying on sherry-casks!
    • Nose
      83 83
      Apricot jam, yellow rasins and a bit floral at first. This is followed by milk chocolate, vanilla and butter.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Rather full and creamy. Apples, oranges and some spices(cumin, ginger). A strange sensation of sweet and sour candy, and a metallic note. There's some coffee too.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Vanilla cream and pecheas followed by some marzipan (love that!). Some fresh herbs and a hint of smoke linger

  10. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Not too bad, actually, especially of you try it blind and your preconceptions of what a Dronach should be like are taken away. The 46% abv. suit it well. Good for what it is, but of course nowhere near a sherry bomb.

      A lot of fruit, citrus, orange, a little sherry, vanilla
    • Taste
      Some sherry, very fruity, spicy, apricot jam, cocoa
    • Finish
      Medium long and spicy

      For 8 years, very well done

  15. LordBellamy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    with water: now the fruity side is better, citrus / orange, apricot, mandarins

    Conclusion: great entry into the core range, from which many distilleries can cut a slice. Successful and convincing.
    • Nose
      Apricot, fresh fruit and a few dried fruits, some vanilla and a few oak notes and herbs, honey, orange peel, slightly buttery, the youth is recognizable by a point, but not very pronounced, after the first sip the sherry character is more noticeable in the nose without becoming dominant
    • Taste
      good start, astonishingly oily, spices, honey, chestnuts, in addition to the light fruit also some sherry notes, these more clearly than in the nose
    • Finish
      rather short to medium length, here are some almonds and a good dash of oak, which gets slightly bitter at the back

    Youthful and light, but already pleasantly spicy. Fair offer!
    • Nose
      Fresh and sweet. First a lot of caramel and vanilla. Over time, the sherry shows more and more with some plum and raisins.
    • Taste
      Pleasantly spicy. Dry cocoa. Less sweet than the nose. Light dried fruit.
    • Finish
      Easy and rather short. Becomes drier with almonds and oak.

  18. valery77 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Intense, vibrant. Boiled sugar, malt, floral shades, vanilla notes, sweet pastries, flour, fruit caramel. 22
    • Taste
      Medium, sweet and slightly salty. Black pepper, cardamom and other spices, fruit candies, red apple, woody notes, alcohol burning, mineral water. 20
    • Finish
      Medium in length, smoothly fading, with wood tannins, a hint of menthol and alcohol bitterness. 21
      Pleasant, delicious whisky for every day, although alcoholic bitterness and burning slightly spoil the picture. Balance 20

  19. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Certainly a dram which polarises the GlenDronach whisky appreciating community. On the one hand, this is a fine, well made and characterful entry level malt with delicate vanilla, malty and toffee notes. On the other hand, however, it lacks some brightness and obviously some sherry flavours GlenDronach whiskies are usually famous for. I feel a bit disappointed as I very much like the pleasant sherry-based matrix of GlenDronach bottlings. Nevertheless, a nice and reasonable priced every-day dram.
    • Nose
      Very aromatic nose with loads of butterscotch and toffee notes, complemented by vanilla fudge. Very buttery indeed. Then fruit emerges with mirabelle, yellow plums and oranges, along with plenty of citrus peels. It has a floral and perfume-like side which is rather unusual for GlenDronach. Overall this is a fine nose though.
    • Taste
      Bold and very sweet with crisp malt, porridge, butterscotch, toffee and vanilla biscuits. There's a hint of white pepper with some nice gingery notes and a slightly bitter aftertaste with almonds and walnuts. Very malty with lots of caramell sticking to the teeth. I can't taste any sherry here maybe due to the heavy load of malty flavours.
    • Finish
      A medium long and nicely warm finish with a hint of sherried fruit (here it is!). A touch of grassy tones with ginger and oak spice on the tail.

      With water: More sweetness is coming through both on the nose and palate with malt, buscuits, vanilla fudge and lots of toffee. The finish still is medium long with a slightly spicy edge. No sherry flavours at all.

  20. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 85 points Super Administrator

    With its combination of ex-bourbon and sherry casks, The Hielan' offers a nice twist to the GlenDronach theme. Thumbs up for the age statement! On the nose, fresh fruits, butterscotch and beeswax are interwoven with vanilla, cinnamon and hints of thyme. Punchy, crisp and spirit-driven, the palate takes over with citrus-honey, pepper and a touch of arugula. A gentle hug from the casks appears towards the finish, leaving behind a nutty/grassy aftertaste. Although I do prefer the sherry monsters, this young malt qualifies for a perfect everyday dram.

    An intense 8-year-old who, in contrast to the rest of the core range, was also in ex-Bourbon barrels.

      fruity (light fruits), some sherry, vanilla;
    • Taste
      strong, fruity onset, tingling, creamy, mouth-filling, slightly sherry, spicy, still young;

      medium length, fruity finish; in the end a little oak;

  22. Totoro scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nose: apricots and chlorine. Apple juice. Sourly. A hint of coconut / bourbon barrel flavor, but barely any barrel wort noticeable. Below the ex-bourbon impression hovers a certain sherry depth away. But first: bright fruits, straw. Flowers, flower meadow. Lemons, possibly orange peel. Not easy, but: buttery, fat.

    In the mouth: full, strong, good body, oily, slightly hot (rather alcohol / youth than the influence of the barrel). Starts sweet and sour, develops exactly in the direction, "juicy", and leaves in the finish exactly what you had already heard in the nose: Ex-Bourbon barrel flavors, again this chlorine note, floral aspects and light-fruited. Impression remains surprisingly long in the mouth. Long finish. At the second sip certainly coffee notes (sherry influence?) In the finish. But more barrel wort than originally suspected. Acid-spicy as an overall impression. The "Cask Strength" in young & sparkling (and maybe a bit sprightly).

    With water in the nose even more "steamy" (more chlorine / ozone), surprisingly not even more fruits.
    In the mouth then mineral, calcareous, milder, but also with a much less interesting finish.

  23. Lakerfield scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    While not a real stunner of a whisky and not typically GlenDronach, it for sure is a really enjoyable one! It shows some youth on the palate and lacks complexity but what do you expect from an 8 year old? Furthermore I couldn't detect any off-notes. I have to add that this could have been any other non-peated Speysider/Highlander as I could not blindly tell you this was a GlenDronach. Last but not least. The big 'AGED 8 YEARS' statement, that's something not many distilleries would do. Anything under 10 years receives a dodgy name in 99 out of 100 cases. Just a little detail but I think it shows some balls. All in all, well done GlenDronach. I just happen to like your extremely sherried stuff a little more!
    • Nose
      To start, this is vastly different compared to 100% sherry matured Glendro. Sherry is still noticeable but it is mostly fresh fruit that dominates the nose. Apple, lemon, kiwi, pineapple, plum, malt, vanilla, aniseed, custard, rice pudding, ginger, caramel, dark chocolate, praline, leather, almond, marzipan, dry hay, lamb chops and a little solvent note, probably just the alcohol showing a little youth. Not exactly what I'm looking for in a GlenDronach, but on its own a quite refreshing nose.
    • Taste
      It follows the nose, being a little sour on the arrival. Malt, apple juice, grapefruit, orange zest, raisins, green grapes, creme brulee, Oloroso sherry, chocolate sauce, salted caramel, roasted almond, olive bread, vanilla, honey, sultana, lavender and butterscotch. Very fruity again, lightly sherried and with enough space left over to show its distillate character. Drinks really easy.
    • Finish
      Medium with vanilla, malt and milk chocolate.

    Definatly a bargain bottle, but I still think I would spend a £5'er more to get that little extra that the 12YO has to offer.
    • Nose
      It's sweet and sherried. Without having a glass for direct comparrison I found it quite similar to the 12YO. 

      Dark fruits, raisins and chocolate.
    • Taste
      Typical Glendronach at the base.

      Again sweet and sherried. Gentle spice, a little vanilla and basic but good wood notes.

      Not too spicy, and not too spirity either for such a young sherry matured whisky.

      Noticably lighter and simpler than the 12YO, more so on taste than smell.

      Easy drinkable and likeable whisky. 
    • Finish
      Could have been longer, shy of medium lenght.

      But what's there is good.

      Lightly drying sherry and chocolate flavours.

    Needs water to improve the nose and mouth feel. For 8yo statement very well matured. Clear Glendronach signature. Much liked. Mainstay in my cabinet.
    • Nose
      w/o water: heavy sweetness. Bourbon. Citrus sweet. metallic green notes. Sharp.

      w/ water: more sweet. Less bourbon-y. Definite sherry. Berries. Green grapes. A bit Irish whisky.
    • Taste
      w/o water: peculiar/singular mouth filling sweet arrival. Perfume development to bittercitrus, and dry, very dry.

      w/ water: sharp arrival, undefined. Sweet citrus development.

    All in all i think the Glendronach Hielan 8, is a pleasant surprise which gives in the price / performance ratio a good performans, but I must also say that I am a Glendronach fan :-) Cheers
    • Nose
      The nose is beautifully fruity with a pleasant spice.
    • Taste
      Tastefully beautiful Strong and complex ... wow, I like that very well and I would not have expected for an 8 year old whisky, cool .. after a short time it becomes nutty with caramel and something like Christmastime ;-)
    • Finish
      The finish is good but not to long with sherry and pleasant as I find.

  37. Shane_IL scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    his whisky was straightforward and not very complex, but it was still very drinkable and a bit more interesting than some of the standard fare 12 year old whiskies out there and also more mellow than many whiskies bottled this young. Very nice sipping whisky at the lower end of the price range.

    • Nose
      Lots of sour malt and mash notes, almost like the smell at an active brewery. Musty old books. Honey. Pears in wine sauce. Very light citrus and wood spice notes.
    • Taste
      Again very malty, slightly sweeter here with barley sugar, honey and some ginger biscuits. Slightly more ethanol showing through than I’d like, but nothing unpleasant. Woodspice. Cinnamon. Vanilla cream. Slightly salty towards the end.
    • Finish
      Medium. Bitter wood. Orange peel. Dunnage. Slight sweet honeyed flair at the end.

  38. Totoro scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Summer whisky for sure. "Light," vibrant (i.e., young), but not unsubstantial. Not mad at it at all, but I'm still not sure Glendronach and ex-Bourbon casks are made for each other. Liked the Cask Strength editions better in that regard.
    • Nose
      Chlorine and ozone vapors. Floral notes and dry hay. Apricots and apple juice. Acidic. A hint of coconut and vanilla (the ex-bourbon influence), but otherwise very little noticeable wood. Perhaps a hint of sherry "depth" in the background. Fat, juicy, buttry, not "light" per se.
    • Taste
      Sweet-and-sour arrival, builds on that. Good body. Oily, full, substantial. No surprises in the development: malt and citrus.
    • Finish
      Almost exactly what was already contained in the nose. The chlorine again, plus the floral and fruity notes. Lingers for a suprisingly long time though. Subsequent sips reveal shy sherry notes: almonds and coffee. Finally some wood spices, but they just kind of drift in and out.

    An easily accessible and by and large well-made whisky for a small price. He is indeed young but lets recognize a certain quality. Line up well in the standard range of Glendronach - 26.02.2017

    So a little different Glendronach - with the passing of time, sherry fights through the vanilla-chocolate veil. It's not bad, but it's too shitty.
    • Nose
      Honey is overflowed with maple syrup, pears, sherry, a little bit of grass and marshmallow. Overall, a very smooth and smooth scent
    • Taste
      Creamy - woodiness, vanilla, fruit in creamy bitter chocolate, sherry, a little salt and spiciness. It is very delicate to feel sherry
    • Finish
      In the reverberation of vanilla, chocolate, some pears, delicate spices

    Still a little young. You can feel the bourbon influence especially in the finish. There is a lack of intensity and maturity.
    • Nose
      Sweet, chocolate, plums, some cinnamon
    • Taste
      Meaty note, alcohol, light fruits, caramel sweetness, dark oak, coconut
    • Finish

    Final Thoughts: I am torn on this one. One the plus side we have: age-statement. And I cannot emphasize enough how much I like, no love, that GlenDronach was brave enough to write an age-statement on this one. 46% ABV is great as well. But there are some things I don't enjoy about this 8 year old: It lacks complexity and is a young whisky. I think that is what you have to expect. But it also lacks the distinct GlenDronach sherry character. There are simply too many bourbon casks in this mix. Overall: this is a nice dram if you want an easy-to-drink whisky.

    Overall Score: 4/7

    • Nose
      The nose starts of with light fruity notes, pretty light for a GlenDronach, no heavy sherry notes to find here. Citrus (Oranges) and apples, maybe pears. Then some of the youth appears: metallic and some young wood influence. I like the beginning but the end of the nosing isn't my cup of tea. Oh and there is some vanilla as well.
    • Taste
      Suprisingly full bodied at first. Pleasant mouthfeel. Vanillacream with a light sweetness. But the Hielan' lacks complexity. At the end the youthfulness appears again. The dram is getting sharper and develops oaky notes. But rather young ones, not that well integrated. Again: nice start, bad ending.
    • Finish
       In one word: short. Again rather sharp. Then dry notes, bitterness and some vanilla. End of story.

  44. Andytka3 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    N- Fragrant warm white rice on first sniff, lightly spirity. Fruity orange twist over ripe plum and vanilla with powdery spices. P- Vibrant and good weight on palate. Marmalade and dried fruits jam
    zest up the flavour, towards sweet side with slight black pepper.

    F- Medium length. Milky and hefty with breeze of sherry overtones. Lightly twitch at the back reflect the youth.

    For an 8-year-old, from GlenDronach, pitched for Euro 30.- (Anno 08/16), a bomb. Properly long and dry, it stays pleasant on my tongue.

    I welcome the fact that Glendronach release this expresion as a age statemand. Huge toffee is in the palate.In my oppinion a great malt for his age. Well done, this Whisky becomes a place in my standart range as a well good all day dram.

    Of course not comparable to the standard 12er. Already due to the lower sherry share. From my point of view but for 8 years already neat with some draft and a nice finish.
