  2. Fight65 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    This is already my second disappointment of a Glendronach from the Bourbon barrel. Was definitely a refill and then diluted down to 46%. Once again a bitter disappointment and can hardly call itself more whisky.

  3. Allandale scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Body: Full, almost viscous.
    • Nose
      Creamy malt. Minty leaves. Hint of burnt wood. Cloves.
    • Taste
      Sweet nuttiness. Leafy. Roasted nuts.
    • Finish
      Dry and nutty.

  4. SomeMalts scored this whisky 70 points Member Senior

    Not sure whether it has been a sherry or a bourbon cask. But that it has been a (re)refill is clear to me. Nose must have been the most interesting part.
    • Nose
      Grassy then buttery, sharp and slightly pungent. Some spices but no sweetness/fruitiness
    • Taste
      Here is some sweetness but also turns a bit soapy and a fainty haylike taste.
    • Finish
      Bit dry, not much else going on.

    On the 50 ml miniature the cask type is described as Refill Sherry.
