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.

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.

    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.

    My only regret in purchasing this bottle is that I shared it with to many people, leaving to little for myself.

    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, 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.
