  1. GlenPiWi did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Glendronach was closed between 2/1996 and 5/2002 so this whisky is a minimum of 21 years 2 months old

    Sublime whisky !
    • Nose
      A deep agreeable sweet nutty smell is coming out the glass while slow fatty tears are going down. Coffee and chocolate together with sulphur and tobacco ashes.
    • Taste
      Strong coming in for a 46% but a rich full body filled with sherry and oak, walnuts and malt in a light smoky environment. Not creamy or oily as expected from the tears in the glass but more like a light syrup.
    • Finish
      Long aftertaste, drying out nicely but not too far. Oak and light warming spices. Light smoke and tolerable bitterness.. Sweet sherry.

    Excellent full and intense sherry keg-aged malt. Wonderfully complex and interesting with a pleasant tart note on the finish. Oak clearly pronounced. Is something for me behind the GD 21 years, PLV is great!

    Conclusion: Blindtasting Advenstkalender: typically delicious Glendronach, fruit bomb, super overall impression, only a little dry
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sherry, sweet, dark ripe fruit, the alcohol is there but relatively well involved
    • Taste
      87 87
      Strong, balanced, fruity, sherry, slightly dry & spicy
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium to long, balanced but not explosive, too dry

  7. mosesumike scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Clearly the older brother of the 15er. But more sherry dominating and a little more on tap. The quality is considerable. PLV clearly perfect.

    • Taste
      86 86
      As a special one has immediately the red wine notes and the well-known matchmaking effect. I like that. Then the whole Christmas market with good espresso in the air. Gentle woody spice notes in the background.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Rather long and with cough syrup like mouthfeel, he slowly leaves the stage. He stays wonderfully sweet. In the background still a woody menthol taste. Has something.
