  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, sweetness of spices, macerated and sweet black fruits, all embellished with a feeling of old grimoire.
    On the palate, various noble spices, macerated dried fruits and others cooked like an orange marmalade (the scent), the woody consequent, a few dried and fragrant herbs and vanilla stick.
    Older leather in return!
    In the end, medium to long on the wood, then fruits and spices!
    Very good, finally the best Glendronach tasted so far.

    Careful with this one, I see at least 7 marketing professionals rating this a 96+, what's left?

  4. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Disappointing dram, Glendronach’s aged core range easily ranks higher than this “rare” expression.
    As Flavor Flav said: “Don’t Believe the Hype”
    • Nose
      Reserved nose, not big and in your face sherry. Light cherry notes with some classic Glendronach oranges. A touch of chocolate wafer and some slight alcohol prickly.
    • Taste
      Touch spirity, nuts and raisins with oak. Plenty of woody notes with it quickly turning bad towards sour oak.
    • Finish
      Short to medium, chocolate and a little raisin.

    Glendronach 1991 Kingsman 48.2%

    Colour: Dark AmberBody: Medium/Full

    Nose: Cherry and crushed mint, Sherry isn't too in your face, it's restrained, a little sharp alcohol though, nicely woody with some nutmeg, some cinnamon, but there is a sour vinegar note that I feel I’m sensitive to.

    Taste: Sharp then soft, woody, lots of oak, cherry, artifical cherry, cinnamon spice, Euro oak, sour red grape.
    It is quite sour and woody to start, then it gets even more sour. 
    Finish: Short/Medium length. Malty, lots of espresso, dark chocolate.

    A really disappointing Glendronach, especially for the huge price point.
