The GlenDronach 15 Year Old Revival

GlenDronach 15yo Revival Bottling Note

The Revival has been revived! The GlenDronach's 15 Year Old Revival was a much-loved expression, though was sadly discontinued in 2015 by the distillery, citing lack of maturing stocks. However, stocks have been replenished and The GlenDronach 15 Year Old Revival has returned to our shelves! Matured in Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks, this stuff is hugely flavoursome, aromatic and complex.

Please note: We're afraid we can't guarantee which vintage you will receive. It'll still be yummy GlenDronach no matter the vintage, mind!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Coffee beans, sponge cake drenched in sherry, mint leaf, slightly buttery, sultana.

Palate: Oily walnut, new leather, blackberry and apple crumble, toasted brown sugar and a touch of liquorice root.

Finish: Fresh ginger, waxy orange, caramelised dried fruit and a hint of cigar box.

Reviews for The GlenDronach 15 Year Old Revival
Very good
There is a lot of criticism around this bottle due to chill-filtration, etc. but let's be honest: for an intermediate whisky lover, this is still a very very good presentation. It is a bit pricey, but if you are a sherry lover you can't go wrong.

Love this
An amazing, complex and pleasing whisky. There have been some changes in the taste but not enough to warrant a bad review. This is a great whisky with all the notes required for a sherry cask fan.

A shadow of its former self
Very sad that this whisky is now chill filtered and is made with different casks.

excellent value against modern competitors
Everyone knows that this isn't the whisky of old. They've changed a few things here or there apparently that takes a fair bit of character away from this bottle, or so I've read. Since I've not had those older bottlings, I can't speak to that. What I can tell you is that I enjoy sherried scotch more than any other variety, and I enjoy this bottle more than Macallan 12, more than Dalmore 12, more than Glenmorangie LaSanta and yes more than my Glenfarclas 25. Not as much (though it's a different ballpark) as Signet, but to me, someone who hasn't had the original bottling, this is an excellent bottle. Good legs in the glass, dark fruits on the nose, medium mouthfeel, sweet, dark, rich finish. Very solid 4 stars.

a shadow of itself
checking back on past orders, i used to buy the old bottling for £38 in 2014, which was my go to scotch, but fast forward to now and it's a pale imitation of it's past glory, with different casks, chill filtering, and you can tell there isn't the more aged and mature scotch in there that they used to be, and although i would'nt expect the price to stay the same, the huge % increase for an inferior product living on past glory reputation is really out of kilter & a con, so i sadly won't be buying again, and i never thought i would give it the measly rating i have

Was 5 star but now 1 star since chill fitration bought in.
Unfortunately this whisky has gone through two downgrades in flavour. One in 2015 and the other now that Glendronach is chill filtering their whisky. A very big retrograde step. I have enjoyed Glendronach 15 (and 18 & 21), but will not be buying any more bottles until the distillery stop chill filtering their product - it just takes all the flavour from the whisky (and I notice the difference).

A Has been
Before it went out of stock in 2015 the 'old' revival was my favourite scotch, but this new variation is not a patch, it's much 'thinner' than before, yet at a huge % price hike, & it uses the same name and label which is a con really, so I won't buy it again. it's not 'bad', dont get me wrong, but for £60+ you can do better.

Not for me
I’ll stick with the Glendronach 12 and the Port Wood version. The Revival has too much of an overpowering alcohol bite for me, and if I add water to it, I might as well just buy the 12 year original.

My go to choice of malts
A superb whisky for the decerning drinker, this is my go to choice for something special. Personally I find some of the older more expensive malts too intense but here at 15 years in the wood, price point, complexity and intense flavours are to my mind in perfect balance. Only downside it's just so drinkable it never seems to last very long

Good, but not the Revival we loved.
If you have the original Revival, I will buy the bottle from you regardless it is that good. Perhaps better than the Parliament which is still top 3 for Cherry Scotch's. This version of the Revival is not as well done, it does not feel as well aged or produced, it honestly is not as good and I wish they had changed the name and kept the mystique of the "Original" Revival rather than used it for marketing hype. Still a good drink and for the price an amazing Cherry Whiskey, sweet and light, but not what I hoped for which is a shame. Back to the Parliament or the Allardice if it is not available.
