Description

It would have good qualities about it, but may be lacking in less detrimental aspects such as complexity. Sherry sweetness, dark fruity leather, cocoa, citrus peels, vermouth and some orchard fruit and spice notes.

I’ve made a Godard reference with GlenDronach before (with 15YO Revival), so I’ll continue with that theme since there’s a title that fits with this sherry matured whisky. If you pour it directly from the bottle to the glass, it is very tame and actually doesn't taste like much at all. The result is a truly unforgettable whisky, characterised by its sublime richness and deep sherried profile. Remarkable flavours of stewed fruits and all-spice marry together with classic aged Oloroso sherry and toasted walnut bread combined with chocolate Conclusion Tremendously complex and long. In the event of any safety concerns or for any other information about a product please carefully read any instructions provided on the label or packaging and contact the manufacturer.This is the kind of whisky that’s hard to get sick of and something I’d put in my top whiskies list. Something about sherry finished scotch is like glue to the inside of the mouth, especially combined with a slightly high 46% ABV. The mouthfeel is exquisite with the sherry helping to entirely coat ones palate in sweet, dried fruit flavors alongside a mellow vanilla from the oak. I honestly don’t doubt that Driscoll ever did anyone a good turn, the problem for me was that he reserved the right to do a bad one as part of selling someone something.

Being a big Islay drinker, many of the more delicate whiskies escaped me when I first started getting into scotch, but this bottle immediately struck me as something special when I first tried it. The impact on the palate is rich and powerful yet smooth and creamy with a long aftertaste of spice and dark chocolate. Based on the logic above (and on the exact closure date of the distillery, which I don’t know), the GlenDronach 18 Years Allardice I’m reviewing today should be 23 years old, and maybe even 24 years.

Vanilla and caramel mingle with the dark fruits and chocolate to create a wonderfully complex backdrop for the peat and salt to sit atop. That means this particular GlenDronach 18 Years Allardice I’m reviewing is actually a lot older than you might think, maybe even 23 or 24 years old. It is a stunning good whisky, not only to my palate but everyone who tasted it and many are fussy with their whiskies.
