Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1995

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.30 points

  1. ovanpuyvelde scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It's quite obvious that this was a single cask bottled for the Japanese market. In my opinion it tastes more like a Karuizawa (sulphur, fireworks) than a Glendronach. In this case, that's not a good thing.

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Rock solid.
    • Nose
      Fruity and earthy. There is sweet barley and green notes of mint, but this is overpowered by some sulphury and earthy notes of matches, tobacco, spend ground coffee, chocolate. There is some oak: sawn planks, moist, damp wood, vanilla. Of course there is ample fruit: raisin, prune, and orange.
    • Taste
      Friendly, yet with sufficient punch and a good level of acidity. The fruit shows more prominently, pushing the earthy notes to the background. Mainly sultanas, then some honeyed barley, and towards the end a bit of licorice, tobacco, chocolate and spices (pepper, cinnamon).
    • Finish
      The mustiness returns. It gets damp and dark, with tobacco, licorice, spices, sultanas, and orange juice.

    Delicious sherry bomb, firm but still sipping softly. Full of flavor. Smell and taste nicely balanced. Really enjoy this.
    • Nose
      Red fruit, cherries, raisins. Plum. Honey .. Capucchino, chocolate. Beautiful full and present fragrance.
    • Taste
      Dry, red fruit, full, warm, soft. Honey, orange.
    • Finish
      Light peppers now, warming. Pretty long finish. Capucchino, red fruit.
