Highland Park Vintage 2001 review – distilled 2001, bottled 2012June 17, 2014
GlenDronach is a well respected whisky distillery, offering quality stuff mostly matured in sherry casks. And so is The GlenDronach 15 year old Revival, matured in Oloroso casks. The distillery was founded in 1826 and is one of the first licensed distilleries in Scotland. Nowadays it’s owned by BenRiach.
GlenDronach 15YO marks as the release of whisky under new ownership. This whisky won a Silver Medal in Malt Maniacs Awards 2009.
NOUVELLE VAGUE – reincarnation of something great!
GlenDronach 15 year old Revival has to be one of the greatest sherry whiskys out there. Greatly balanced, rich palate with sophisticated sherry appeal. Revival is a spot on name, because this dram is like a rebirth of something great.
Movie called Nouvelle Vague comes to my mind. Not because the movie in question is nearly as good as GlenDronach 15 yrs Revival. But because it is about reincarnation and it is a retrospective by Jean-Luc Godard. A look back on his previous work.
GlenDronach 15YO Revival is much more easier to understand than the Godard film. Revival is smooth and easy, yet complex. Far better and more characteristic, than their 21YO Parliament for example.
