Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 1995

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.43 points

  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A truly great GD expression. Very well matured. I have to admit that after my visit to this distillery, the charm and sympathy I felt for their whisky, was damaged. They do know how to make whisky, but they also know how to create a hype and ask astronomical prices for them. What they don’t know is how to offer visitors a great experience when visiting them. But aside this rather poor experience, this is a perfect example of what a great product they are able to make. Taste this blind and you will be blown away.
    • Nose
      Loads of very ripe, candied red fruit. I would almost think a big pile of very ripe red fruit is on the tabel, ready to stick your nose in. There is also a very present layer of vanilla in it. It makes this a very pleasant nose. It can handle a decent amount of water to get rid of the wee sharp note that is there.
    • Taste
      Full flavored. A tad sharp without water. With water it eases down and creates a great malt moment. It is very sweet, mature and well balanced. It’s oily and very sticky.
    • Finish
      Intens, sweet, soft and long. Very long. Especially in the finish this is covering your mouth with an intens, sticky, sweet sherried flavour which stay with you for quite a while.

    Super light, not your typical thick and oily Glendronach. For GBP105 not a bad price, but you can get better ones for the same $$.
