glendronach LN31286 2019 18 Year. i rly RLY like this one! smooth and warm and i’m happy. apparently it’s 24 years becUse it’s actually 18 plus 6 that weren’t counted in the sherry casket june 7 2020 - i’m already pretty tipsy but i dint love this one as much as i did last time. it shows context counts

Brendan,
A very good scotch, but I feel it gets lost between the 15 and 21 year Glendronach expressions. The Revival is arguably just as good as the Allardice in my opinion, and if you’re going to splurge on the 18, I think it’ worth paying the extra to step up to the Parliament.

Jeremy,
This is an amazingly sherried dram. Beautifully balanced with the right amount of heat, sherry, oak, plums and black cherries. Extremely smooth and drinkable with an everlasting finish. Wonderfully leathery woodsiness as well. Great complexity, balance and full bodied flavor

Lots of sherry hint of peat. Dark rich color and long finish. My favorite so far.

Richard,
It's been a long time, I remember it being delicious, but not that much more delicious than the 15 year revival, given the price difference.

I quite like this, smooth sherry bomb. Almost nothing on the nose, but everything in taste, works with water, it got strength

Chris
Chris,
A heavily sherried 18, and a good buy if you're looking for that age, but Glendronach hit the Goldilocks zone with their 15...which might have ruined my taste for this one.

Michael,
This is the second bottle of this fine single malt I have had the pleasure to drink and share with friends. Very nice
