Glendronach - 15yr Revival

46% ABV

Snifter, splash of water, bottle just opened

A very sweet very inviting nose leads to a strong up-front sherry/raisin-flavored body, that finishes with a uniquely long-lasting woody finish with a very nice tingly mouthfeel, which leaves behind it a chocolate aftertaste.

The nose on this whisky is a new favorite of mine. The main theme here is sherry and raisins with subtle chocolate, toffee, and wood notes.

Nose-24: Strong raisins, sherry, brown sugar, subtle milk-chocolate, honey

Body-: Thick, syrupy

Palate-21: Strong sherry and raisins, barley, toffee

Finish-22: Long warming tingly oak, sherry, raisins, and molasses. Quite some time after the sip, some cocoa notes linger.

Balance-23: Take your time with this scotch. Everything seems to last just a little bit longer to develop. Just let the flavors happen...

Overall-90: Overall, this scotch is a new favorite. Typically, the Islays appeal to me most, but I like this one for completely different reasons.

Nice review BARutledge! Recognize many of the flavours, which suggest they have been consistent with batch quality. Here's to them!
