Nose: Ripe with some woodsmoke, mulch/humus. Sweet, rich and deep hints of sulphur.
Palate: Soft and long. Tomato puree, treacle toffee and gravy browning. Deep and intense with grip.
Finish: Long, firming.
Comments: Yes there's sulphur but it's not off-putting for me.
Tasting Notes by Martine Nouet for Whisky Magazine
Nose: Sherried. Dense. Damp warehouse or more precisely cider cellar. Burnt wood. Earthy. Moss. Fig syrup. Coffee and walnut cake.
Palate: Sweet and mellow at start then the wood prevails. Huge wave of liquorice. Eau-de-vie cherries in dark chocolate.
Finish: Lingering, nutty and chocolatey.
Comments: A well balanced sherried whisky. Rich, complex with a beautiful finish.

This Dronach is fantastic. The lingering after taste is intense, goes on forever. Goes great side by side with a dark ale. Its a true king of whisky's for me.

At first like a dream, the sherried whisky I have been looking for. So complex and vibrant that you think you have landed in sherryheaven. But when the whisky starting oxidize, it shows it's nasty sulfur character. The change is pretty drastic. Not let this whisky oxidize, put the whisky smaller bottles and don't leave much air in there.

Without question, the single greatest thing I’ve ever drunk under any capacity. If I were stranded in the desert, seconds from death, I would choose a sip of this whisky over gallons of water.

15yr Revival gets all the glory, but in a side by side this 21yr boasts maturity and depth. It is also the only one in the GlenDronach range without the drying sherry finish that can be a little displeasing at times. I just bought a bottle of this for my fathers birthday.
