The GlenDronach 15 Year Old Revival

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.

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.

GlenDronach 15 Year Old Revival Reviews

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.

Fabulous whisky

I've had several bottles of this now and it has become my favourite. If you like sherry cask whisky to my mind this is the best at the price point. Lovely oily texture with chocolate orange and burnt sugar flavours. I'm no expert and I've never tried the pre-2015 bottling but this is a superb whisky.

A tribute to the one and only Revival

Some character has gone, the direct-fire stills will be missed. However, it impresses me how well this iteration matches the 'original' spirit. Lighter, smoother, and slightly less of a woody-tang.

Very Very good

I have been a single malt drinker for several years, The twelve year old Glendronach is very good, I was reloading my stock and my local scotch expert suggested that this was his favorite.
I must certainly agree that this is a terrific scotch. Is without a doubt my favorite. It has all the attributes of the 12 year original but smoother and more refined albeit at a bit higher price but well worth the pleasure of drinking it.
We are talking Aberlour, MaCallan, Dalmore, The Balvenie, Talisker and Oban.

Good stuff.

Best ever tasting malt

Rich dark malt, with a taste of heaven

20th August 2020

Great product!

Really good liquid, easy to drink and enjoy.

A marvel and a huge step up from the 12

Very smooth, sherry is everywhere; like a mad sherry trifle. Brown sugar, and a bit of orange in the finish too.. A marvel and a huge step up from the 12... has to be 5 stars


12th July 2020

Still good

The old 15 I thought I heard it had 20yr blended in it. That explains why this new one is lighter and thinner than previous expressions.

6th March 2020


I've just opened my first bottle of the 15 and I'm already considering buying another bottle. I've wanted to try the Glendronach 15 for a while now, having experienced many varieties of whisky and knowing my palate, I've tried all the main expressions of Glendronach and loved them all. This one, however, is my favorite. It is very similar to the 18 with big sherry notes, but there is something almost sugary about this whisky, everything is chocolatey, coffee beans, cocoa, with a punchy vitality to it, full of life. I rate it a clear 9/10. For sherry enthusiasts, this is a must-have in your collection. Don't think about it. Buy yourself a bottle.

Amazing and delicious!!!

Last bottles of the original found

The whisky club in Australia found the last stock of the original in Mexico and are selling this now!

5th July 2019

Still an excellent dram, have another bottle coming today enough said

I bought the original and loved it, bought this new release when it came out. I cracked the bottle and shared the first tasting with a fellow whisky enthusiast, i think this is still a fantastic whisky, my friends comment," This is one smooth dangerous whisky"

13th June 2019


Compared this side-by-side to my 2013 bottling... new version is much lighter, much thinner, much sweeter, and far inferior. Aside from that, the fact that they changed the recipe but kept the name is deceitful of Glendronach's new management.

16th March 2019


...they will never be reached! You do not praise the new things

27th February 2019

A top quality 15 year old sherried dram!

I would say it is still a top quality sherried dram, the old revival was slightly better but wasn't that older than its 15 years age statement. This is new revival is simply a top quality 15 year old sherried dram and I am just waiting for it to come back into stock again.

1st February 2019

I hear what other people say by saying pay that bit extra for the 18.... HOWEVER they are completely different whiskys. If you have the 18 then defo buy this to see what Glendronach also offer with a mix of Olorosso and PX sherry casks. For £62 it's money well spent

5th January 2019

$AU135 is damn bang for buck!

NO product is ever going to be the same as its predecessor or successor over a period of time. It stands to reason that there will be variances - some time for better - some time for worse. In this case, I cannot personally make an assertion as to the providence of the previous offering of this article.What I can say is that,this particular incarnate is, I daresay, blooming moreish!

4th January 2019

Old revival much better

yes, its very different from the old version. You can really tell the dufference when you compare them side by side

22nd December 2018


Time changes, I never got to taste the old bottling but this is a damn good 15. Torn between this and the Glenfarclas 15, definitely depends on mood between the two but if I'm being honest the Glenfarclas 15 is a tad bit ahead.

28th October 2018

Damn Good!!!!!

This is a rich beautiful dram, people should not compare it to the previous Revival as this is a completely new recipe, as we were told on our recent visit to the distillery, it is packed with flavour, with a silky caramelised finish, top notch whisky, damn good!!!!

25th October 2018

Well worth the wait

Waited for this for a long time. And it’s delicious

23rd October 2018

A very good dram

Different from the older version but still very good

23rd October 2018

It’s A great Whisky!!

Too many people are trying put this on the same pedestal as the old 2015 version before even trying it. As with all Glendronach this is a very pleasant dram in its own unique way. Those that care that it’s not as old as the previous bottling are just or as rich and full are just talking Huff!! Those people are just moaning that they are not getting age for the money anymore. Not true whisky connoisseurs if you ask me. Appreciate it for what it is and stop all the whining. Great whisky!!

23rd October 2018

Not much of a revival

What has happened to the revival? I have been counting the days until I got to drink one of the great whiskys again. Even with the £20 price increase I thought it would still be worth it. What a disappointment. It's not in the same league as the revival of a few years ago...

22nd October 2018

Didn't try the old one, this one is ace

Having never tried the previous version that is so fondly looked upon, this is a fresh review with no prejudice of the older one.

I find it excellent for a 15 year old, it drinks much older than the label regardless. Rich PX and chocolate notes, some nuttiness and Christmas pudding.

I would highly recommend this to any fan of the sherried, highland or speyside profile.

19th October 2018

Amazing whisky!

Wonderful whisky. Make sure you grab a bottle while they are around

18th October 2018

Not living up to expectation sadly.

Decent dram. Not a patch on the old one sadly. Oh well, we will always have the memories of 2015.

18th October 2018

Nice dram. Very different to the older cult version

Pleasant whisky. Completely different to the old cult bottling of <2015 mind. Don’t expect great things.

I recommend the 18 year old Alladice over this.

18th October 2018


Buyer Beware. Not the same whisky as the old <2015 bottling.

Much younger and not as full as the last old bottling.

Still a pretty decent whisky but £62 is taking advantage of the formers reputation.

My recommendation is pay the extra for the 18 year Allardice.
