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.

Glendronach 15 Year Old Revival Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: 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.
Palate: 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.
Finish: Damp leaves and a hint of mint. Raisins and dates linger.
Comment: Rich, dark and sticky, with very well balanced sweetness. A fitting Revival revival.

Damn Good! This is a rich, beautiful dram. People should not compare it to the previous Revival as this is a completely new recipe, as we were told on our recent visit to the distillery. It is packed with flavour, with a silky caramelised finish. Top notch whisky!
