I recently got an opportunity to order a whiskey taxfree. So I chose one that normally is not available for me to buy (in Sweden).
But I haven't found any information about this whiskey, Glendronach 15 y o.
It is not even mentioned in the Tasting Room.
Anyone out there who can provide me with a little information about this whiskey?
I hope yours will be much less horrible, Popup!
Actually, it IS available in Sweden. You can order it from "beställningssortimentet" and it'll take 5-8 days normally.
I'm a die hard Islay fan, so this wiskey might not be what I had hoped for, that remanes to be seen. But it's always nice to have different kinds of whiskeys to compare between. And it will look nice in my whiskey cabinet anyway!
r0b, yes I know it is possible to order. I had to decide quickly and didn't have time to find out the procedure for ordering. And the price I would have to pay would be much higher. And since it was "cheap", at least realatively speaking, I thought I would take my chanses with a wildcard.
"I remember when uncorking the bottle and and pouring a dram, I glanced at my cat lying beside me, wondering if he had just farted."
Great stuff , i bet this quote doesn't make it into the next Whisky Mag Review of the Forum!
The GlenJerez sorry dronach 15yo is one of the worst whiskied Sherries i've every tasted . Don't do it !
It's far from my favourite wiskey, although I still think it is quite pleasant. And the cat-fart statement was not even close.
But I do think the bottle will last for quite a while.
However, the very same day I got an Ardbeg 10yo from my girlfriend as a valentines day present (is that true love or WHAT? ).
Unexperianced as I am in wiskey, I had not tasted an Ardbeg before. But it was the next wiskey on my to-by-list.
And I have to say, in my own whiskey score rating it passed Lagavulin 16yo as my favourite whiskey.
I've read the posts about Glendronach 15yo and have to agree with previous posters that this whisky is totally overpowered by sherry. Its impossible to get anything else from either the nose or palate. Its an extremely acquired taste. Don't go there, there's a million others malts more worthy.
I wonder though if there is quite a bit of variation between bottlings. Others have commented on its sulfur (cat fart, old wellingtons)nose, but the sulfur in my bottle was quite restrained, and certainly less pronounced than recent Macallan-12 or Glenfarclas bottlings I have tried. My bottle had a very enjoyable sherry fruitiness.
