Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 2003

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Been plugging away at this bottle for some time now. It’s just getting near the end, so It’s a fair time to make my assessment. It’s good, possibly even great at the price point ($85), but these young sherry bombs have never been my love. I’ve had 7 batches of glendronach cask strength (against my will) and this beats them easily. Its still very young (tasting) and the alcohol is not integrated well, imho.

      It’s hot, expectedly. White pepper and rye. Cinnamon hearts and raspberry purée. Some orange oil.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Orange chocolate, pepper, cayenne, leather.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Drying, white and black pepper, leather, cherry, orange oil, grainy alcohol.

    A hesitant nose, sweet and syrupy with a nice heat. Good, but doesn’t reach greatness. Balanced but not complex.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Muted, the sherry is hesitant. Sultanas, maraschino cherry, limes, fudge
    • Taste
      89 89
      Syrupy, sweet, grape juice, chili pepper
    • Finish
      87 87
      Tingling heat, sweet chili dipping sauce
