- Glendronach was closed between 2/1996 and 5/2002 so this whisky is a minimum of 21 years 2 months old
- Sublime whisky !
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.
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.
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!
full; distinct sherry note; Sweet; dark fruits in alcohol (including prune, raisin); some caramel; Oak
complex and oily in the mouth; fruity and sweet; spicy oak noticeable; spices; harsh chocolate notes
long; slightly dry; Sweetness, which increasingly turns into spicy-tart oak flavors; Dried fruit; spices
- Conclusion: Blindtasting Advenstkalender: typically delicious Glendronach, fruit bomb, super overall impression, only a little dry
Sherry, sweet, dark ripe fruit, the alcohol is there but relatively well involved
Strong, balanced, fruity, sherry, slightly dry & spicy
Medium to long, balanced but not explosive, too dry
- Clearly the older brother of the 15er. But more sherry dominating and a little more on tap. The quality is considerable. PLV clearly perfect.

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.
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.
