Customer Rating
Revival is a rich and intensely flavoured whisky, showcasing the heavily sherried style that Glendronach is well-known for. This expression laid the foundation of Glendronach's current rise, with their sherry-matured drams now spoken of with the same reverance as the other Speyside heavyweights. A must-have for sherried whisky fans.

Glendronach 15 Year Old Revival Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    This one is the brand new version under new owners and Billy Walker’s management. 100% oloroso matured.

    Colour: amber.

    Nose: except for the oloroso notes, this new one simply hasn’t much to do with the old 15, but it sort of kept the best parts (balsamico, mushrooms, raisins, parsley). Much cleaner but certainly not monodimensional, beautifully sherried, developing all on walnut liqueur, beef stock, hints of Madeira at some point (rather than straight sherry), soy sauce, mint sauce, a little camphor, maraschino (very obvious after a while), horse stable, coal smoke… Very complex in fact, and pretty brilliant so far. ‘Wow’.

    Mouth: big, rich, nervous and wonderfully sherried, immediately remind us of some older Macallan 18s (Gran Reservas). Coffee, chocolate, prunes, dates, beef jerky, dried bananas, figs, orange liqueurs… And a very nice rancio in the background. As for spices, we have cloves, cinnamon and just a little star anise.

    Finish: rather long, with the spices getting bigger and just a faint dustiness. Fades away on blackcurrant jam.

    Comments: the fact that some distilleries still have such old style sherried whiskies may well be the best of recent news from the whisky world. Adorable whisky. SGP:462 - 92 points.

    Excellent, MUCH better than the 12. I initially started with the 12 and didn''t know why everyone was raving about Glendronach, but after trying the 15 and 18 I can see why. The 15 is very good, taste like the 12 with more oomph and depth of flavour, the flavours are a lot more concentrated in the 15. However, I prefer the 18 to the 15. This is because the 15 tastes more oaky and nutty, while the 18 is sweeter and fruity

    On its way out........Buy this while it''s still available at a reasonable enough price. This bottling is to be discontinued shortly.

    I can only echo what has previously been written, that This is a fantastic Malt. Its the second Glendronach I''ve tried, having already sampled a bottle of the 18yr Allardice, but the 15yr is absolutely superb. Beautiful!

    As I am currently drinking a Glendronach 15 I feel compelled to add my 2 pence worth .Comparisons with the Macallan range are to be expected. 15 years ago a Macallan 18 was ?40, I bought a 1984 and was underwhelmed, even then. Currently "The" Macca has gone stupid (sherry cask now a premium!!). Enter Glendronach - into the void. This is fantastic stuff and is like buying money. Don''t be fooled by the price, all of the Glendronach stuff is brilliant value and Macallan has moved on to the uninformed (Think Beckham/Haig). As a collector I love Macallan but (and you at Glendronach can have this as a jingle) :- If your thinkin'', Is for drinkin'', Drink Glendronach! (blues accompaniment optional)

    SuperB. As far as sherried whiskyes go ths is the must for any sherry head. it makes you feel kinda privileged when you drink this, assuming you know your whiskies. I had to stock up 6 bottles of this, it just doesnt get any better for this price. Of course there are sherry bombs in form of abunadh ( batches dependand ) and excellent glenfarclas 105 in similar price range. But this have some aura of exclusivity. When I want to treat myself Im coming back to this one.

    Absolutely delicious and it's easy to see why there are so many enthusiastic reviews

  • Anonymous 13 June 2014

    A stunning dram for under £50. So complex, with lots going on it will always be one of my main drinking drams. The 18 Allardice, and 12 are great too!

  • Jonty B 5 February 2014

    It ticks all the boxes more me - a great dram and good value. Bottled at 46% and maturated in quality casks - What more do you want.

  • Keefy, Aberdeen 26 January 2014

    Exceptional whisky, worth every penny!!

  • Andrew Robertson 17 January 2014

    The perfect dram

  • Zoran Avgustin 18 December 2013

    I am extremely disappointed about this whisky. I dont know how can it scores so high with its dirty profile and nasty alcohol bite. Glendronach can deliver lot better editions, Revival just doesnt work for me.

  • ClarkeUSMC 11 December 2013

    Quite simply my favorite of all. Like buttery toffee, Oloroso nose and caramel finish. Best served neat in a Glencairn.

  • Jerry 5 December 2013

    I'm not a snob, I just enjoy a good whiskey and this is simply the best I've ever had. Wish more of it were available.

  • Anonymous 18 July 2013

    Just buy it, best whisky for the price hands down.

  • Paul Bradford, Liverpool 18 March 2013

    Nose, sherry, sweet caramel, winter spices Taste, sweet, toffee, spice, taste of the sherry oak. Christmasy Finish, smooth sweet taste with lingering spice and warming feeling This is a lovely dram. Can't argue with the price and a must buy for all sherry cask lover's. SPECIAL :-)

  • Anonymous 27 January 2013

    This has a lot of great elements to it. Sherry, touch of smoke, dark caramel, fruity, lovely oily mouth feel. There is the right amount of complexity there and the price is right.

  • Anonymous 31 July 2012

    Going on recomendations from online reviewers may be foolhardy but in this case the sheer weight of opinion here tells a stroy. I can't claim that it is peerless in this price range because I haven't tried enough but its certainly the best I have tasted below fifty pounds.

  • Andy 4 July 2012

    A fantastic whisky still one of my favourites lovely toffee notes with a warming malty growth on the palate. I still prefer this over my Glenfarclas 15. Buy it. Buy it now.
