Just like the 15yo, Glendronach Allardice 18yo (named after the distillery's founder) has been 100% matured in oloroso sherry casks. We're delighted to welcome Glendronach back from the wilderness – Billy Walker and his team are doing outstanding work here.

    I bought a bottle of this today; fantastic whisky. My usual preference is a peated/smoked Islay whisky (Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Caol Ila). I often find that Islay fans find it difficult to get as passionate about other styles of whisky (myself included). If this is the case for you, I’d highly recommend you try GlenDronach 18. This is a wonderful sherry flavoured whisky. On the nose, I got Christmas cake, raisin and cherry bakewell. The taste is wonderful and complex with flavours of almonds, raisins and sherry. The aftertaste gave me a warming richness. I also sampled this whisky with a Romeo y Julieta wide body Churchill Cuban cigar - a match made in heaven.

    This is such a laid back sherry monster that I always chill with this one. Just chilling and having great time. I call this one the chill out dram

    If you imagine what noble sherry malt whisky would be, this one will exactly give you the answer. Though i love amazing single cask 1993,1994 , i often miss this silky and fluent sherry malt whisky. In one word, 18yo is bible of sherry malt whisky

    I have tried this wonderful W. over christmas. I am impressed by the complexety and the balance. The sherry is so pressent yet the sweetness is not overwelming.

    Fairly new to scotch, normally a bourbon drinker. This one is magnificent, dried fruits, rich chocolate...many layers and lovely color. Will definitely revisit! Cheers!

    A Regal Scotch. While its certainly on the pricey side it tastes exactly like a 100 dollar bottle of scotch should. It has an extremely rich punch of dried fruits, both in nose and palate. I've always been more partial to Islay and Island scotches myself, but this one demands your attention in a similar manner, though with overwhelming richness instead of smoke.

    I have been drinking Gelndronach for three years now. At first I bought the 15y/o, the 18y/o,the 21y/o and the cask strength. 15 was good. 21 was too sweet and the cask strength needed diluting and was just never right. The 18 I got at the time was the best scotch ever. When the 15 disappeared it was a clue that maybe the 18 would not be as good. I have bought several bottles of the 18 since and while it is not as great as the 18 two years ago it is still my favorite. This scotch is only for the neat drinker. It is like a fine cognac.

    This is among the best scotches I've ever tried. I had purchased 2 bottles of the 15y.o. on the recommendation of personnel in the Scotch Whisky Experience in Edinburgh and was disappointed upon returning home to the USA in that the 15 was no longer available. I was excited to find the 18 and delighted to find it a superior scotch. Smooth, multiple layers of complementary flavors so subtle...not inexpensive but well matched with much higher priced whiskys!

    Oh the flavours in this is just what I want. I don't have to taste hard for them to come. They're just there. Will definetly have this again, and again... If you do like tasty, sherried Whiskies, this is it.

    Melted chocolate in a bottle. After 2 drams, put it away or it magically disappears!

    Not a fan of this to be honest. The finish is quite sour and has that cabbage/asparagus note which I have experienced a few times before in Glendronach single casks. The whisky itself just feels a bit thin and pretty dull in flavor. Not one I will buy again and with the price of their single casks releases getting more overpriced every batch it looks like Glendronach will be just be a distant happy memory from now on. This distillery has had its day in the sun in my opinion, one to avoid for me sadly

    Yes hard to get. I found 5. Grabbed them. For sherry, I've yet to find better. A gem.

    Another very well done whisky, one of my favourites together with the fantastic Glendronach 15 Revival, Glengoyne 21 and in different style but also with wine influence, Bushmills 21. I like very much both 15Y and 18Y but I feel the 15 is for less-sweet whisky lovers. If they give me the two versions to pick one, it would be a difficult choice but I would certainly want the 18 because is more fruity and sweet.

    Excellent whisky, very dark coloured sherry cask whisky for a decent price. Chocolate, toffee, plums. Just two drams back and finish is still open for me but atleast chocolate. Very nice purchase.
