Glendronach 15 Years Revival

For years the 15-year-old Revival had been one of the most popular bottlings from Glendronach, but it is now discontinued because the distillery had been mothballed from 1996 until 2002. Stocks are dwindling, and prices have already gone up.

If you are on a malt treasure hunt, watch out for the word 'discontinued'. GlenDronach 15 was easily the best whisky of the distillery's core range. The nose is overwhelmingly complex with balsamic vinegar, overripe berries, raisins, maraschino cherries and a touch of mint. A rich and powerful sherry arrival underscores the caliber of casks been used in maturation. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cinnamon and walnuts mingle with dried fruits, herbs and tannins. Substantial, savory and pleasantly spicy in the finish, this bottling is a real beauty of a Single Malt!
