Glendronach

Postby Elagabalus » Thu Oct 09, 2008 4:21 pm

You know I think I wrote an article or inquiry about Glendronach a while ago. I can't really recall. Anyway, I really didn't like this dram. Too sweet in a fruity way. I don't really appreciate any whisky that tastes like truffle.

We all have different likes and dislikes, but maybe this would be better in the Tasting forum.

Ela,
we may discuss the 'where' but I think I agree with the taste. I find it tastes a little too much of orange for my liking. A bit like Cointreau or Southern Comfort, but not as sweet or syrupy.

I had a bottle back in 2006 and found it way too winey.

Lawrence:

Glendronach may be an unremarkable whisky but when blended with Ardmore, the result is Teachers which is proof that sometimes blends are an improvement of single malt.

C_I wrote:Maybe the current 12yo might not be a spectacular one, that does not mean Glendronach is an unremarkable whisky. Maybe due to the fact that the 12 is the only widespread bottle currently available might give this impression. I have tasted Glendronach 15, 18/1972 and 33, and these were *much* better than the 12 (though 15 has some variable results). Although not tasted, the 25/1968 and Signatory 1970/1990 appear to be legendary.


Point well taken C_I. I was just refering to the 12.

Best Glendronach I've tasted was a 22-year old (distilled 1977) from the Douglas Laing Old malt Cask series... Much livelier, crisper and precisely delineated than many of the OBs I've tried, with the fruity sweetness ably held in check by drier, spicier flavour aspects.

The Original 12 is a triple-cask whisky, which puts it in the same company as Glenfiddich Solera Reserve and The Macallan Fine Oak series (though I believe the Fine Oak uses a different cask combination than the other two). I didn't mind the Original 12 at all, but I think the Solera Reserve is a much better-balanced example of combining multiple cask types.
