Whisky Advent Day 16

And day 16 is….

Glendronach 15 year old “revival”.

I’m pretty excited about this as I’ve never tasted it, but I’ve heard only good things. Glendronach was restarted by the good chaps behind Ben Riach and so represents an independent distillery that needs our support. they inherited old stock distilled before the place was mothballed, and judging by the awards it must really have been decent stuff.

Here are the dramstats for the revival:

glendronach15

  • Price ~£40
  • ABV 46%
  • Age 15 year

Nose: Tons of rich sherry fruit. Lovely! Chocolate raisins, medjool dates, toffee apples, muscavado sugar, then very malty ovaltine.

Palate: Oh yes! The nose, which promised so mucy rich malty sherry is carried through to the palate with a rich malty sherry fruit explosion! chocolate, dates and malty ovaltine!

Finish: Raisins, sherry and chocolate vanilla with malty ovaltine.

Verdict: YUM! Serious bargain, one I really enjoyed finishing off!
