And to finish my review of finished Glendronach whiskies, today I review the 15 years old Moscatel finish dram. Moscatel is a kind of Spanish wine doing with grapes from the Moscatel variety. They are very sweet and most of them are half-grape, half raisin.
So let’s review this Glendronach 15yo Moscatel Finish.
“That's a pretty interesting whisky. Not as great as the 15yo Revival but quite quite drinkable. From a man that doesn't enjoy sweet wines finishes”
This dram has a gold-like color.
Nose (89): more than average. honey, citrus, vanilla, raisins, wood, toffee.
Palate (90): powerful, oily. honey, wood, citrus, spices, wood, leather, chocolate, sultanas.
Finish (89): longer than average. honey, spices, raisins.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Glendronach 15 Year Old / Moscatel Finish Speyside Whisky with 89 points over 100.
Quite interesting I say, if you enjoyed Parliament go and give it a try you will enjoy this one.
