Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1990

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.91 points

  1. Vince' scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    The drop is extremely oily in the glass and the color is reminiscent of very dark amber.
    Nose: Full load of PX Sherry at first: Milk chocolate, baking vanilla and sweet mint, which combines with sour cherry and old sherry notes. I associate with the old sherry gods an old long-abandoned wooden house and something earthy-muffiges (positively meant), unlabelled tobacco, hot old sawed wood and old leather and walnuts. Lovage and balsamic underpin the spicy character of the drop. With a certain amount of oxygen, the initial sweetness fades into the background and the nose becomes more acidic, wine-like and tart with a hint of vanilla and some gunpowder. Generally, the alcohol is not felt. Oxygen also does good for this GlenDronach. Taste: Short sweetish like speculoos then quickly strong but pleasant vinous sour and spicy dry with many roasted aromas such as hazelnuts, walnut. In addition, old leather and tobacco are involved.
    Long story short: An old Sherryfasseinfluss as it stands in the book.
    Reminiscent of the palate to a splash of balsamic mixed with lovage, old sherry, espresso and a small pinch of sugar. A very pleasant balance of old sherry flavors and oak. Alcohol is not felt. Very old leathery, spicy sherry stays on the tongue. The tongues will be relatively dry in the finish. Sweetness is slightly lower than the nose. Residual acidity, spice and coffee with old wood define the long finish which has a cooling effect on the tongue.
    In short, the finish tastes just like a warehouse smells of old sherry casks. I like it very much! Conclusion: Very tasty, in comparison to the 1989 also completely different. Of course, more sherry impact but also very good. So good that it is also something before the 1989 for me. But it always depends on what you are looking for. Here you get the full load of old spicy sherry. The 89er Batch 14 gets a bottling with subtle sherry flavors and other flavor spectrum, which also requires some experimentation with water. Something else you would expect less from Glendronach.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Unmistakably PX, sweet, bright, lots of coffee, milk chocolate. A slight bit of sulfur, but definitely not egregious. As is most glendronachs from the early 90's, not very complex but damn good. I had two bottles, but after opening one, I sold the other. Again, good, but not great. Gives me the same pleasure as many other good 90's glendronachs.
