  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

  3. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Close to the 12 years old with a little more spice and punch
    • Nose
      Toffee and caramel, on the sweet side with a note of ginger spice. Citrus oils and delicate hints of chocolate.
    • Taste
      The sweetness is there, the spice and heat us also there. There's chocolate drops with a touch of citrus and orange, sweet and sour mix.
    • Finish
      Finish shorter than expected but still longer than most others on the market.

    1468) The GlenDronach, Cask Strength, Batch 6, Bottled 2016
    • Nose
      N- After Glengoyne, another CS release by the Highland-er. Highest strength to date for their CS series so far. Albeit the lively strength, shows rigidness at first, before the dried fruits emerged with spicy nuance. Molasses and dark caramelized pastry. Whiff of chocolate lead to fermenting soya. Rather tight but do open up a little more after breath with jammy fruits and berries. Much align with the 12YO but at high strength. (87/21)
    • Taste
      P- Creamy bitter chocolate, espresso mocha with treacle, rich and roasted. An unusual for Glendronach, but a nice citrus and lemon candy at retrohale. (87/21)
    • Finish
      F- Long, good staying stamina with firm grips, dry and echoing with dried fruits and sweet spices. Warming with increasingly more lemon come fore...somewhat urging me for a whisky sour now... (87/21)
