Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 2003

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.92 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: sultanas, rum, toffee, roasted hazelnuts, ripe plum, fig and a good portion of chocolate, in addition a lot of spices from the oak eg cinnamon, cardamom, some caraway and star anise - fits everything together well, harmonious and round

    Taste: raisins and plums are very concise, beautiful sweetness and strong alcohol, also the oak plays again in the orchestra of flavors

    Finish: long finish, of course the PX-Sherry plays the first violin with dark fruits and some chocolate, the hazelnuts show up again and the oak gets spicy and pleasantly dry at the back.

    Water: he really does not need it, but we'll try it with a few drops - wow, which opens with only three drops of water tremendously, is very round and soft, much sweeter, almost liqueur in the nose. So to all of the "There's no water in my whisky" faction: Take a heart and make a few drops. This GlenDronach will thank you.

    Conclusion: The GlenDronachs from the Chancellor are simply worth gold, because I have never had a bad malt. Werner, I thank you, also congratulations later on the 30th anniversary!
    That was a great PX keg, the sherry is very present, but not all-encompassing, but leaves the whisky itself still room to work. Without water through the Christmas spices of the X-Mas Dram par excellence, it transforms with a few drops of water to the perfect after-dinner malt. A great example, that adding water to God knows how to work wonders not only with a bit too strong drams - 89 points!

  2. Lorion scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Great. Prefer a neat one of this age than an average older age! Absolutely great. 90 points.
    • Nose
      Sherry. Sweet fruits. Cherries, dates, rum raisins. Oak is also present and a trace of alcohol. Not that it bothers, but noticeable. Fruit salad with sting. Grapes, strawberries and more.
    • Taste
      Fruits in chocolate shell. Warm and juicy they melt in the mouth. A few sweetened nuts are added and subtle oak. Sweet dessert.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet and chocolaty.
