  1. Igitor scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A tasty whisky that needs water. Unfortunately one-dimensional
    • Nose
      85 85
      Tangerine, leather, slightly floral, pepper. Not particularly complex
    • Taste
      86 86
      Sweet, light leather, peach. Quiet, but not very complex
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium-length finish that carries the taste on without change

  2. spigray scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    very good stuff in my opinion. head to head with batch 4 I find this still better, although Batch 4 was better than I had rememberred it.
    (will have to go up with it)
    89/100
    • Nose
      lovely, very straight sherry nose on rum raisins and spices like allspice, cinnamon. the oak  brings out hints of lapsang souchong tea and quite some leather. there is also some toffee and freshly ground coffee. roasted aromas that remind me a little at glenmorangie signet.
      find this nose very good, after the last two batches that had disappointed me a little.
    • Taste
      very good. even with water it has quite some punch and the whole mouth is covered with a big spiciness and dried fruit. the oak is strong but very pleasing and still there is this signet feeling.
      I think they used older casks in this one, I find it really astonishing
    • Finish
      very long, spicy, warming

  9. Pulteney83 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    I really liked the old revival 15 and 18 year old. This CS is a little different but also very good.
    • Nose
      88 88
      sherry, little bit closed, leather, oranges, marmalade, chocolate, dark fruits, cinnamon, typical glendronach, sherried whisky.
    • Taste
      86 86
      This last note develops in the taste, with a meaty bite, wood, not only dark red fruits, but also some lighter notes behind the high abv.
    • Finish
      87 87
      fruits, blackberries, spices, not that dry like the 15 and 18 years old, sweeter.

  10. Pyromann scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Wery good dram. I was impresssed by those spicy notes in both nose and taste. I was discovering interesting hints thoughout whole tasting of this whisky. Really good.
    • Nose
      Soem mysterious spices dominate, there are also fruity notes - bananas and something more fruity. The nose is whole based on the sherry sweetness and softness.
    • Taste
      Tasete is very robust and intense. Cask strength lets us know about itself - there is some sharpness related to higher ABV, but nothing unpleasant, more like heavy and solid. A combination of heavy chocolate sweetness, sherry, some mysterious spices from the nose. Then there are some overripe fruit of course. Would go well with a drop of water imo
    • Finish
      moderate, mix of sherry and chocolate sweetness and spices
