Tasting Notes From The GlenDronach Website:

NOSE: A delicate mix of ripe autumnal fruits – notably blackberries and red plums. Rich Oloroso sherry and candied orange segments. Spiced oatmeal biscuits and toasted oak fragrances bring excellent weight and balance.
PALATE: Resolute flavours of fine Oloroso sherry and bitter chocolate sauce, which has been spread liberally over homemade plum pudding. This is all infused with fabulous spicy notes – cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Full bodied with smooth tannins.
CONCLUSION: Long and lingering.

Colour: non-chill filtered and natural colour

TransparentSmoke: This is a 21 year old Whisky by age statement, but based on the going theory on the internet, it could be as old as 26 years based on the bottling date on your bottle. https://wordsofwhisky.com/glendronach-is-a-lot-older-than-the-label-says/

My bottle had a 2020 date stamp making it 25 years old whisky. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done sharing this with my whisky club.

GlendDronach Parliament drinks like a dream. It’s easy and the sherry sweetness if very prevalent. This is one expensive bottle worth every penny.

Our Score: 97/100
