  1. Bowmore Axel scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This bottling is due to the closure in May 1996
    be significantly older than 12 years.
    (at least 17 possibly 18 or older)
    Nice little sherry bomb. Could be a little sweeter.
    Let's wait and see how the development in the open
    Bottle runs.
    More detailed tasting notes will come later
    to. Color is very dark.

    I have reconsidered my opinion, what a great Glendronach. Unfortunately, it starts to become scarce, I have treated myself to a bottle of extra. rating from 92+ to 93 based on tasting with friends.

  7. hansverkerk scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Bar code 5060088791646 this fantastic dram turns out not to be 12 years at all. On the drinkdoze blog you can see that this topper is 18 years old. And that for a price under 4 decades. Great nose, beautiful color and really a Glendronach as you expect, nice and soft, full mouth sherry, fruit, honey, chocolate. a 91 ++.

  8. Goethe scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Amazing stuff for a "12 year" old bottling. By checking the bottle code you will realise this can't be just 12 years old. Go for the 2013 and 2014 (June bottlings) versions.Concerning price/performance ratio: 10/10
    • Nose
      Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry balanced on the arrival. Sherry punch! Dark and red fruits, vanilla, raisins, leather, jam, prunes, chocolate, espresso.
    • Taste
      Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry balanced on the arrival. Sherry punch! Dark and red fruits, vanilla, raisins, leather, jam, prunes, chocolate, espresso, great texture!
    • Finish
      Long. Dark chocolate and fruits, leather, soaked scones way in the back.
