Sherried Scotches are special to me. Whether it’s the Macallan, Glenmorangie Lasanta, the Dalmore, or even my personal favorite Ardbeg Uigeadail, these whiskies hold a special place in my heart. That said, I’m always looking for new sherried Scotches to try because I know there’s a good chance I will enjoy them.
The Glendronach’s label proclaims that it is “exclusively matured in the finest Spanish Oloroso sherry casks“. That’s good enough for me.
There is a very noticeable scent of sherry followed by a hint of leather. Glendronach is sweet and bitter smelling at the same time – very pleasant. There’s also a touch of caramel to round things off.
The taste is very nice; even more pleasant than the nose (taking all of the aforementioned qualities and magnifying them). There’s more leather present, with absolutely no peat or smoke. Big sherry in the mouth, and a good amount of oak.
Glendronach has a smooth finish, which is suitable for such a well-aged whisky.
Rating & Recommendations
Glendronach 15 Year Old is an excellent sherried whisky, earning a high rating of 89 out of 100.
This is a delicious, well-aged Scotch that I would recommend to any fan of fine whisky (granted they can afford it).
