Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Magazine
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.

A fantastic sherry-focused whisky. To me this is the perfect balance of aromatic sherry intensity, sweetness and complexity. This is a sherry bomb ,with the only criticism I could level at it being that its not really better than the 18 year old, while being quite a bit more expensive. Then again it lacks the "bitter" tannic kick that many people find undesirable (Red wine drinkers like me may find it more than fine) and is a bit sweeter.
Simply unremarkable, to my taste. Bought two bottles at the airport with intent of sending one to a new acquaintance as an introduction to ‘good’ Scotch. Upon tasting from one bottle I decided against it as a present - really not up to scratch.
Great whisky, warming sherry dram that reminds me of Christmas. In my opinion not as good as the 18yr Allardice, which is one of the finest malts on the market.
Wonderful whisky - a delicious, satisfying glass and although expensive, worth the outlay. Not in the least bit overoaked, contrary to what others may think.
I don’t get it. 21 is clearly over-oaked in a textbook way. The nose was almost dominated by plums and cherries, only a tiny bit cocoa showed up and disappeared. Palate was not as good as popular comments either, too sour for a neat whisky. The body was disasterly thin, finish was too short for a 21 year old. Don’t really recommend for those who do not know what they like. Overrated.
Magnificant !! Really wonderful aroma and taste. I love also finish. It is great for that price. No only for that price I've tried many well-known and much more expensive, but for me this one is the best. Now I will make a small reserve !
The 18 year old GlenDronach is my 2nd favorite whisky, right behind this amazing bottle! While I have a large collection and I enjoy many different expressions, I always return to the GlenDronach Parliament.
I love it...fantastic.
Nice, complex 21-yr. old. Rich aromas and great tastes...I like it better neat. Wonderful dram for the price!
Add a few drops of water and you will have the best after dinner dram of your life. Besides the fact that this is a sherry monster the dominant note for me is chocolate. Both Milk and Dark. On the nose I get Dates and Figs too. If you want to have a nice alcoholic desert that is both chocolaty and spicy. It reminds of you Christmas flavours. I highly recommend it.
Rich rich taste, defiantly has WOW factor for me. Ive had a couple of different bottles of Glendronach statements before, & have never been disappointed.
This awesome funky little monster is like drinking a spiced chocolate covered truffle mushroom dusted in light espresso powder.
Bags and bags of character and depth, a Christmas dram if there ever was one but try a few teaspoons of water it really opens up and there is a bit of sulfur but not in a bad way it tends to die away again with a little water and I recommend experimenting and exploring this dram it really keeps on giving with a little coaxing !
The best value for money whisky
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.
Tried it today at The Wee Dram Festival In Cheshire...quite the best sherry matured whisky I have tasted in A long while.
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.
Wow, very good, you won't be disappointed:)
