  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.

  3. IIIZIII scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Milk chocolate, stewed fruits, prunes, figs, dates, vrey intense, lots of overripe fruits. No sharpness and alcoholic note to it. Only the overwhelming amount of mellow fruits with brown sugar and chocolate
    • Taste
      Big arrival, complex and integrated oaky development. A little chocolate, and the dark fruits from the nose.

  5. LeChiffre scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Excellent full and intense sherry barrel matured malt. Wonderfully complex and interesting with a pleasantly bitter note on the finish. Clearly pronounced oak. For me there is something behind the GD 21 years, but PLV is great!
