Glendrostan Blended Scotch Whisky

A humble review of a scotch whisky that is blended from a recipe prior to 1790

Item Description

Tonight I am going to do a quick review on a mixed Scotch Whisky that was given to me by a nice fellow. Glentrostan is the brand and the label shows a connection to New Jersey - Northvale specifically.

Poured a decent amount into a tulip glass with a touch of water to open it up.


Initial smell is of rubbing alcohol, as opposed to what some online reviews state. A follow up smell to ensure I was not being too rough was undertaken with the result also being rubbing alcohol. At this moment, my expectations plummeted and I felt my nostrils had been violated. However, much to my surprise, this really came through on taste and texture. It is on the lighter (Highlands) side - a bit sweet with a changing scent after sipping of almost honey. A second sip revealed a bit less of a pleasant surprise, but not too shabby. I would not put it in the league of the JW Blender's Batch I have been slurping lately, but it is not a bad scotch for the price.

Overall, I'd give it a 6/10. The packaging leaves something to be desired; the smell (prior to tasting) is not great; the taste and texture is surprisingly light and sweet; and the price, from my research is reasonable.
