The revived Glendronach Revival: a whisky whose original incarnation was so popular that we drank all of it. It's back with a new recipe thanks to master blender Rachel Barrie, combining both oloroso and PX casks into a rich sherry-monster that's packed with spice and fruit. We don't think it's going to disappear of the shelves again, but when it comes to Glendronach 15 Year Old, we always recommend stocking up.Tasting Notes (1)
Glendronach 15 Year Old Revival Sherry Cask
- Dark Chocolate
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Fruit cake for grown-ups: not too sweet, thanks to softly singed raisins, and solidly soaked in bittersweet dark rum. Baked apples with plump raisins, brown sugar and cinnamon sit to the side, studded with glacée cherries and juicy sultanas.
Rich, thick and packed with juicy-but-dried fruit – rum-soaked raisins, prunes and a touch of chopped date. Nutmeg and cinnamon sit underneath along with sticks of black liquorice. It's more savoury than the nose suggests, focusing on fruit cake and bitter dark chocolate.
Damp leaves and a hint of mint. Raisins and dates linger.
Rich, dark and sticky, with very well balanced sweetness. A fitting Revival revival.

To update on my previous review I'm afraid I was a bit harsh. It seems that this whiskey needed a very long time to open up. I/we tried it about a 10 days later and it was perfect?!? The first time we waited for about 15 minutes, but it seems that this whiskey needed a very, very long time to evolve/open up. In the bottle. It actually is what thewhiskyexchange says, rich well balanced and with all the flavors as described above. It is very complex and the finish is quite long. Would buy it again. I give it five out of five.
It was a Christmas present for my husband. Having opened it yesterday I tried it and was pleasantly surprised. It was very smooth and did not catch the back of the throat like some whiskies. Certainly enjoyed it
I bought this online for our after-Christmas-dinner drink and really felt cheated. I haven't tried the older Revival but this one here is terrible. It is one dimensional with a strong alcohol taste. It took two teaspoons of water in a dram to make it drinkable but then it was just sweet. There was some nutmeg, cinnamon and Christmas cake in the way in the background but the strong alcohol taste drowned everything out. It might have just been this bottle but for the money I wouldn't be getting another. I am a big fan of the 18 year old and for the price the 12 year old is a great buy. Likely I had a bottle of Elijah Craig bourbon to the night wasn't a disaster. Just two words to round this up, stay away, much better whiskeys out there for this price.
This is a wonderfull whisky, different to the first Revival but very delicious. I get a much sweeter taste than others find, with stewed raisins and plums and definite sherry-sweetness and an after taste that sticks around. I have stocked up on this just in case.
Super whisky from my favourite distillery,
