From what I hear, the 18 years old is worse and contains some plain sulphur.
I can't compare to the older bottlings.
I have indeed tried both of them.
Both are very well made whiskies, but I have found the 18 YO more complex and subtle. The quality of the sherry cask is excellent, and not too rubbery or sulphury.
If I dare to make a comparison, I would say that they are cleaner and slightly more peaty than a Glenfarclas, with some additional fruitiness too.
As always, it is a matter of taste, but I enjoyed the 18 YO very much. In addition, Glendronach is one of the few distillery with such a high proportion of sherry cask in their warehouse.
