GlenDronach Allardice Bottling Note

The GlenDronach 18 year old Allardice is named after the distillery’s founder, James Allardice. The Highlander was matured completely in Oloroso sherry casks, and was originally released in 2009 following the distillery changing hands back in 2008. An exceptional fruity sherried single malt.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sherry notes so thick you need a knife to cut them! There's a hint of old rum in there too, with pineapple and brown sugar in tow.

Palate: Christmas cake, rum again, chocolate-coated hazelnut, runny honey and a hint of Sauternes.

Finish: Fresh blackcurrant, blueberry pancakes with a generous helping of maple syrup.

My favourite whisky

Spent a lot of 2020 trying different whiskies, and Glendronach Allardice is the one I keep coming back to. While other whiskies have a time and a place (based on day, weather, locale etc), this Glendronach 18 y/o is one I can sup daily.

There's an autumnal/wintry cosiness to this whisky. I have anosmia (I can smell a little, but not a lot) and maybe that certainly affects the smell of whisky, and even taste. I need rich smell and taste. Full flavours. Something that makes my olfactory sense wake up. Whisky does it, and this Glendronach is a sweet, marzipan sherry dream on the nose, and a christmas cake in the mouth, and a warming, fireside finish. Sense of place is a major aspect of how I rate whisky. Full, is a good way to describe it. Fruity and sweet. It's an ideal dram (for me).

Even at +£100, I'll buy a new bottle once my current one is done (likely very soon).

Excellent single malt

My staff asked my daughter what I would like as a present for retirement. She says single malt 16 years or older. They got me a bottle of GlenDronach 18 yr. I have been mostly an Islay malt partaker for 25 years. But my first dram of your 18 yr old, WOW! Well done. Lagavulin 16 move over. Also love the color.

Great Scotch coming from a Scotch hater

Never liked Scotch/Whiskey. Never understood what other people were tasting. It's always been just a burning bitter drink to me luckily a bartender friend of mine convinced me to try this. Is was free so why not?
First, this is by far more tempered than any other Scotch/Whiskey then I've ever had. Oh it still burns, don't get me wrong. But it mellows very fast.
Second, after the initial burn you really can taste all the different things that people usually claim they can taste. It was amazing
Third, the price is prohibited. Here in California S.F Bay Area it's about $170 before taxes if you can find it. I realize most people don't have that kind of disposable income for alcohol, especially now. But if you can afford it, get it.
Third, it keeps selling out and is not getting restocked. I've been waiting since January to buy a bottle. It's now July 22 and I was finally able to find a bottle.
Fourth, please try this if you can afford it and are looking for a great Scotch Whiskey for your home bar. Made to be savored and sipped. It's not for slamming down. If you can make a way to afford it, this stuff is great.

Not longer value for money

I really love this whisky, its a wonderful sherried dram. But I have to agree with the previous poster - every year the price creeps up about £10. Only last year I bought the 21 yo Parliament for less than this one at its current price. Its a great whisky, but no longer worth the price. It is with great regret that I won't be buying another bottle. There are other whiskies out there significantly cheaper and almost as good quality.

price hikes?

this is one of my top 3 malts, but with the unfeasible price rises seemingly every few months, i won't be buying any more soon as i dont like to feel im being ripped off. The day is coming when the malt whisky price hike bubble bursts, and post covid it may be here sooner than you think, so yes, this is a superb dram, but for the price they are asking i can get 2 bottles of superb drams for the same money.

Yes please!!!

Maybe I don't get the subtly of some of whisky but my god you cannot fail to taste the rum and the sherry in this. When trying some samplers I wanted to be wowed. Many in the box, of my own selection, were just decent - this made me take notice.

This was the sort of whisky I was hoping to discover in a sampler set.

Beautiful dark colouring, oily/syrup finish and a decent amount of marzipan, raisins, sherry and a bit of rum too. Taste lingers too. Very enjoyable.

Immediately on my wishlist.

Quite tasty and interesting.

I have 3 bottles of the 2017 filling. Just got the last two a month ago. I also bought a bottle of the Parliment with the first order and found out quickly that I much prefer the Allardice to it. On the palate is orange, honey, walnuts, dark chocolate, dark berries, and for me, lots of maple syrup at the end, unmistakable. It had a great slightly oily finish, some of those dark berries again, orange/chocolate, and as the review said pancakes with gone of maple syrup. Every time I sit and dip it something new trades my senses, but these notes are there every time. I truly enjoy this one.
