Glendronach 15 Year Old Revival Reviews
Tasting Notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
This one is the brand new version under new owners and Billy Walker’s management. 100% oloroso matured.
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.

My Daughter purchased the GlenDronach 15 year single malt for me as a gift a year ago. Me being an avid scotch drinker for over 30 years I was pleasantly delighted regarding its smooth taste with a hint of cherry undertones. I would absolutely purchase this extraordinary beverage again..looking forward to a future purchase !
Heavenly nectar. After experiencing their cask strength 20 year old at the Cape Town international whisky festival I decided to spoil myself on an overseas trip to Winter Park. I can't do this 15 year old any justice. Xmas, snow, skiing, close friends, and Glendronach Revival elevated every moment. Beautiful sherry flavors. I was lucky to obtain a bottle right after they went out of production; 3rd year of waiting for that perfect moment. Buy it if you ever get the chance
Glendronach haven't released any since 2015 so all bottles are from this year or before. Hope that helps.
Wonderful whisky. I have tried several different whisky's over the years and this one is my main choice. Unfortunately it's been discontinued. Hope they bring it back soon.
Is it same as the 2015 edition or a diffetent batch???
This is an outstanding single malt . This is my second bottle and this 1 is being kept safe
I bought this for my husband as an anniversary gift. He loved it!!!
Yes!I like it a lot.
The single malt that started my love affair. Please bring it back.
This is truly a magnificent whiskey. A wonderful glass of goodness.
My only regret in purchasing this bottle is that I shared it with to many people, leaving to little for myself.
For the money, One of the best tasting Scotches I've had.
Glendronach is one of mi favorite single malt and this is one of them .
Great, well balanced sherry monster. It's a 'must try' whisky.
What a lovely whisky.
The best 15 year old single malt I have ever tasted
Smooth, speyside. Wonderfully complex sherry cask finish, which fills it with flavour. This whisky was recommended to me recently and it's up there with the best I've tasted of this ilk
Excellent, very smooth
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.
