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.

GlenDronach 18 Year Old Allardice Reviews

End of a long hunt!

In the late 90s Macallan's 18 year old was my favourite dram. Sadly the cost of this sublime drop have rocketed, putting it largely out of my league. For years, i have been looking for a replacement for the old favourite, which i remember mostly for its brown sugar and caramel toffee aftertaste. Well, I think I have finally found it in this GlenDronach 18. Sublime, smooth, with all the toffee caramel i remember. A lovely drop!

Highly recommended. Thick n warming...

Update, after two weeks, and 30% of the bottle gone: I like this the more I drink it. The slightly off (minor) back-taste seems to have gone and this is showing tons of deep fruit and malty warmth. It's hard to walk past the cabinet (no doors) without pouring a little one...

Liquid Fudge Spiced Brownie - A classic

Ohhhh this is a wee ripper!! Sweet, scorched caramel, brown sugar and fruit cake and a hint of spice dance all around your tongue. This absolutely beats the GlenDronach 21 which seems to not have as much charachter. Pair with some dark chocolate or a mild cigar. Just gorgeous.

Very good, but not 'superb'

Delicious, moreish stuff. Can't say I agree with the berries in the fanciful tasting notes here. Rich, intense, with a backbone of something I can't put my finger on; want to say 'malt' (don't laugh).
Don't regret buying it, but not sure I'd go for it again. There's plenty of rich intensity out there without having to spend £98.
Still, tasty, rich stuff

Slightly Caustic

Too harsh, tastes more like a Lagavulin and the quality gap between this 18 year old and the parliament 21 (which is lovely) is enormous. My personal opinion is it’s a disappointment that lets the good GlenDronach name down. Just to make sure I compared them both this evening a couple of times before writing my first ever review.

Right at the top of its class and well worth every penny

This is one gem of a whiskey. Subtle and classy , smooth Sherry bomb with definitive highland accents . Usually I’m a fan of Glenfarclas , and this has surprised me in its quality and resemblance

The best sub £100 whisky on the market!

This whisky is superb - if you are a fan of Glendronach’s sherried offerings, this is the best of the lot that I have had. There is much similarity to the 15yo Revival, but this just takes it that little step further. I drink GD 12yo for every day, the 15yo for something a bit more special and this for special occasions. I am now trying the GD Cask Strength Batch 7 and it is not what I expect from a GD - not even in the same ballpark.

Most playful

It’s similar to how Cd tracks are ordered. Your first sip is relief it’s worth the money. It is complex but it’s familiarity keeps you listening to see what’s next. It doesn’t disappoint as you continue to explore the uniqueness that I’ve only seen in this dram.

Buy some!!!

Its wonderful wonderful wonderful . Lovely sweet oily goodness. To the chap who thinks its too expensive...In Cape Town its R1000 (50 quidish) than the also very good Glengoyne 18. I think the price is very fair
