Glendronach Allardice 18yo (named after the distillery's founder) has been 100% matured in oloroso sherry casks. It has been at the centre of the distillery's range since its 2000's relaunch and remains one of the best sherry-focused 18-year-old whiskies on the market. Chewy and fruity, with layers of soft spice, and rich raisins and dates.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting Notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Big sugary raisins, dried cherries, dark chocolate, beefy edges, butter, cream, coffee, almonds and toffee. ‘Like a Starbucks Double Tall Cappucino, with fruit’ my more flowery note reads.
More raisins, Eccles cakes, sour plums, dates, cinnamon and allspice, with a big dark woody middle. Water brings out more sweet and sour fruit, with a hint of Worcester sauce, as well as more spice, and simplifies the flavour.
Sugared almonds and butter, with a bit of grainy wood leading to grape-skin tannins.
A filthy whisky, and I mean that as high praise.

Yet another really nice Glendronach, love sherry cask malts and this was up with the best, lovely finish and will definitely buy again
Sweet raisins and spice, with just a hint of a smoky, woody finish. Really good. I thoroughly enjoy it.
I cannot fault this one at all. This is a sublime whisky. The price is intimidating but go for it if you love a typical Speyside and an Islay. It is the middle ground between the two and not in a bad way. Sweet, full-bodied, complex but not overly complicated.
In a word exceptional
Exactly what you'd expect from a good whisky aged in sherry casks
