  1. Igitor scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    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

    On the nose, wood, spices and sherry
    In the mouth, it is high alcohol level, then the sherry light (cooked apple, cherry, sweet grapes) embalm, then grilled cinnamon level spices appear, back of the young wood, present but not dominant!
    In the end, medium to long with spices in the bottom of the glass and macerated dried fruits!

    A strong dram not to be taken lightly, even if it remains young, characteristic spicy dominance!

  3. 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

  4. tangtang scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    beautiful Glendronach, very intense sherry aromas, not particularly complex, but very tasty.
    • Nose
      strong dark fruits, dried fruits, plums, raisins, grapes, caramel. Nice notes of sherry
    • Taste
      tart sherry notes at the beginning, very powerful in the beginning, dried fruits, caramel, pepper, dark fruits, honey. Then becoming slightly sweet.
    • Finish
      nice dark fruity, strong finish. Intense sherry notes, here, too, the sour notes briefly appear. The strong sherry notes linger on the palate and in the oral cavity for a long time
