Glendronach

Glendronach 14 Years Old Virgin Oak
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Full and rich.

Glendronach 15 Years Old 1995 Moscatel
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Soft and easy –and sweet –but all in all a little bland.

Glendronach 15 Years Old, Tawny Port
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 We all know ‘Dronach is capable of better. This is a relic of an old regime. Better things will come in the future.

Glendronach 1995 Cask 4681
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.20%
8 A style of whisky which has its fans. But that oak infusion masks the distillery character and the essence of whisky for me. Sad, as the nose is interesting.

Glendronach 20 Years Old Tawny Port
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Balanced and integrated.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glendronach 33 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 To be enjoyed like a glass of port. Bring walnuts and blue cheese.

Glendronach Cask Strength Batch 1
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.80%
8 Despite its appearance in a youthful, trendy overcoat, this has some developing, interesting and complex under garments.

Glendronach Original, 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A very enjoyable whisky, but somewhat lacking in liveliness.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glendronach Parliament 21 Years Old 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.00%
8 A well balanced sherried whisky. Rich, complex with a beautiful finish.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

GlenDronach Sauternes Cask Finish 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Simply stunning. Powerful, superbly balanced. A malt to savour.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glendronach Special Cask,1993
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.10%
8 Probably a little too long in cask, but if seriously mature whisky is your bag, you'll love this.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glendronach Tawny Port Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Elegant, feminine and flirtatious. Gives you the wink and easy to drink.

Cadenhead's Glendronach 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.40%
7 Drier and less rich than the distillery bottlings.

Signatory Glendronach 1976 Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.10%
7 An enjoyable malt, but Glendronach is capable of more.
