  2. Andreas W. scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Very intense nose of raisins and cherries, embedded in marzipan. These aromas are then confirmed on the palate. Dark chocolate, pickled plums and even a little toasted walnut are added. Very oily mouthfeel. In the very long finish, there is also a nice oak flavor.

    A very successful malt which is worth 92 points (93/91/92).

    Special occasion, special dram.
    What a color. What an odor! A pleasant acid, dissolved in an oak beam, is your nose. Something like that. I am a big fan of Glendronach, even though prices are going up too fast. The taste is bitter, sour and sour - but all mainly of the interesting kind, as can be the case with really good dishes. There is a sweet tooth in the distance.
    This grows with every sip. Boy. From maggi and salt flavors to tropical spices, cinnamon, anise. The comparison with the (rightly) immensely popular 18YO Allerdice is impossible, this is of a different order. This mainly points out my lack of experience and even my limited vocabulary; it is very special, very tasty and I cannot explain why at all.
    This is simply great in any case. And then, suddenly, up. And that is disappointing.

    Oily marzipan whisky with a light lavender finish.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Walnut shell with a lot of marzipan around it.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Nutty, almost walnut, some hazelnut traces, melting oily marzipan. Really pleasant and full in the mouth, warm and oily in the throat.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Quite long finish, a bit of lavender at the very end. Very light sparks of sage. Lavender was a bit unwelcome and not matching the taste. A bit out of scope. Hence the 89 for the finish. Still great however.

  6. ConvalRen scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Sherry nuke with a long lasting mouth coating. Herbaceous flavour profile.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sherry, oak and burnt plastic
    • Taste
      90 90
      Dry, medicinal herbs. Specifically peppermint, elder, sage and cowslip. Mostly the last, that bitter and numb feeling.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Grape punch in the throat. Welch's concentrated grape juice right in the hatch.

  7. Whisky.Hedonist.MY scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Your typical GlenDronach: Dense and syrupy sweetness from dried preserved fruits. Dried nutmeg, hints of ginger, and nice coffee aroma. More overripe fruits, and more dark chocolate as well.
    • Taste
      Fresh and soft, dried fruit sweetness as promised by the nose. Raisin, candy, sweets, liquorice. Some nuttiness appears. Slight hint of mint on the back.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate, espresso. Medium long finish. Refreshing and mouth watering.

    straight up sherry bazooka!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Sherry! Raisins, toffee, oak perfume. After a sip, the nose is very cognac like, with perfumy woods and dried fruits all over the place!
    • Taste
      91 91
      Wow, sweet sherry, toffee, raisin conquer the palate! In the middle oily, minty, oakiness took over and dark chocolate mint with coffee at the end! Mouth watering, tongue coating, sherry bursting!
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long with minty christmas chocolate and oakiness~

  12. Mannix65 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    nice round sherry bomb - best to enjoy pure, if you do not stand on wood
    • Nose
      Dried plum, rum pot, chocolate raisins, sour cherry compote
    • Taste
      rich sherry, dark chocolate, sweet tobacco, furniture polish - with water appears the expected bitter, dry woodiness
    • Finish
      sweet sherry, red grape juice, dark caramel - medium long

  19. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very generous on sherry, very greedy, but also very awaited, without surprise and especially without added value compared to the 19 years that I tasted last year. (The memory is fallible, I know)

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  24. aby scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    nose: notes of ginger cake drizzled with wild honey combine with rich prune syrup spiced with a touch of cinnamon

    appearance: rich cherry wood

    palate: fresh candied peel and stem ginger syrup give a clean crisp edge to the stewed dark fruits infused with rich vanilla and cedar wood.
