  • Excerpt: The taste has a good balance of spices and fruit with apples, honey, and allspice. The finish is long and sweet with Christmas cake and a hint of citrus.

  • Excerpt: When bottlings like this swansong are gone, they shall join the trappings of history – flapping their pixelated wings like rare birds in Internet auctions – the province of well-heeled buyers, collectors, and fowlers’ snares. Happy bunkering!

  • Excerpt: Rich sherried fruits on the full palate, with more pepper, ginger, and plain chocolate. The finish is long, with licorice and oak tannins. Not to be rushed!

  • Excerpt: The chocolate fruit and nut candy bar profile is nicely balanced with the barrels spices and alcohol proof allowing the whisky to be a pleasure and not what I'd call a sticky situation.

  • Excerpt: I used to prefer the Revival over the Parliament, by far. Looks like things have changed and went back to some kind of normality.

  • Excerpt: The growing intensity of the sulfur notes from "present" to "all consuming" are not only off putting, but they cover all of the great notes in the nose and beat them into the ground by the finish.

  • Intro:

    This is a 21yr old, sherried single malt whiskey from our pals at The GlenDronach distillery.

  • Nose:

    Deep sherry, figs, stewed fruits, grapes and honey. Cocoa and tobacco are really prominents as well as some earthiness, some honey and a wisp of sulfur.

  • Taste:

    Medium thickness, no heat. Sweet sherry, sticky honey pastries and vanilla. Earthy pipe tobacco. Swetewd fruits like figs, raspberries, date fruits, and then a massive load of sulfur. Its peppery, bittering and just pungent. It becomes all consuming.

  • Finish:

    Long, sweet but super sulfury.

  • Overall:

    This dram started in a stellar place. The nose is phenomenal. But the growing intensity of the sulfur notes from "present" to "all consuming" are not only off putting, but they cover all of the great notes in the nose and beat them into the ground by the finish. I wish I could score this higher, but unfortunately, the quality just isn't there. Originally I rated this a 6/10 when I reviewed it live in the Discord server but after spending more time with it, I'm knocking it down to a 5.
