Whiskey Vault Ep: 111 Glendronach Peated Scotch Review/Tasting with Glendronach Original Cameo

An episode of The Whisk(e)y Vault hosted at Whisky Marketing School in Austin, TX.

Today we do a review/tasting of Glendronach Peated Scotch from the Glendronach Distillery. We also try the Glendronach Original and somehow Buffalo Trace makes a short appearance.

BTW, I said Glen means river. Glen means a small valley with a river in it. It’s the location of most rivers in Scotland. So “Glen” “Dronach” would mean a small valley with the Dronach river running through it.

Also. It’s Richard Patterson. Not Roger Patterson. let’s just say I was tired and my brain was hazy. Yeah. Let’s blame it on that.

Another Emmy worthy performance from Rex.

I do have a request, I love the Glendronach 18 Allardice. I was wondering if you could suggest some other Whisk(e)ys on the same notes. By the way, I love this channel.

degmar says:

Where do you order whisky from? I thought it was illegal to mail whisky in Texas?

Troy Mousaco says:

Hey Rex and Daniel! First of all Love the show! A group of friends and I have fallen in love with your videos and have basically binged them all. We are all new to whisky and want to explore it more, So I’ve decided to host a whisky tasting night. I’ve decided to go with 4 whiskys and some snacks so my question is. What whiskys would you recommend and what food do you think would go well with it. Thank you for your answer and make sure to open the whisky marketing school in Australia so I can do it :). keep it up and may your crazy stay this side of legal!

Jimmy Leg says:

A glen is a secluded and narrow valley.
abhainn (pronounced something like – aveen) is a river.

As in the new distillery on the Outer Hebrides: Abhainn Dearg (Red River) aveen jerag


The lady giving the tour pronounces it at 2:30.

Mateusz Blocher says:

Guys, Glen in rather an u shaped valley – with or without a river. Am i wrong? Great whiskies here. Best

Cindy Liu says:

Hi Gents! 100+ episodes and getting better and better!

REALLY appreciate more details about the taste/smell, etc of the whisky’s and for reading my comment in one of the episodes.

I have watched y’all from the beginning and it seems that with each episode, your beards have gotten longer and longer and here it comes – a dare.

Daniel, what would you give Rex to shave his beard??

Rex, what would give Daniel, if he were to shave his beard??

OR, perhaps, shave a beard and raise you a Man-Bun?


Keep on, keep’n on!

“Chip the glasses and crack the plates, that’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!”

Raj Singh says:

India has a very hot climate.. So drinking without ice here is unthinkable.. So are there any Scotch that are suitable for these kind of climate..?? Or is it same like any where else..??

Clone 42399 says:

what is a Somali?

trinityzaku says:

I have a request in which to see the way something would react and change. Any whisk(e)y that you feel this would work best with. Done four ways being neat, chilled, w/ water and chilled w/ water. To be clear I’m not saying with ice either but with whiskey stones or bullets or what have you.

ThatsKrazee says:

Roger Patterson? Really Daniel? You mean Richard Patterson. Level 3 whisky sommelier my ass! lol

Artificial Frequencies says:

Tip 🙂 ad a little peated GD to the GD original 12, it’s still a single malt but ads a little more (the GD peated also works nice with the GD sister Benriach 12 Sherry cask)

Fiona Beazley says:

I was wondering if you’ve done any of the new world whiskies? Walsh, Taiwanese, Japanese, Australian etc?

Liam Rockford says:

Thank you guys so much for presenting my comment, y’all are awsome

Drew Mason says:


Michael Funk says:

Would you consider doing some Highland Park whisky’s? Like maybe that bottle of Sigurd behind you on the shelf?

Justanotherparatrooper says:

Two peanuts were walking down the street. One was a salted.”

ZX6Warrior says:

Have gone back and binge watched all the videos. At what point do you feel you get diminished returns tasting because your tongue is toast? I’ve had fights of 5 seem like too much and prefer 3 most times. Based on Rex’s shirt and all the bottles piled up on the barrel behind him it would appear you done way more than 5 at times. Are you giving the whisky it’s due?

Drinking Caveman says:

I hope the charlatan whiskey you guys start making is a sherry cask. seems fitting

charlie.g.hague says:

Roger Paterson? You should be ashamed of yourself.

Ryan Whiskey Wine Dane says:

I always chew my whiskey, that’s what our Whiskey and GM and my store told me I should do. Really does give out more flavor.

Harley T says:

Loving the info, keep it coming. It’s the little tidbits like the Kentucky Chew that satisfy my inner nerd.
Most importantly, we don’t care about ratings here. It’s all about the whiskey, The Somm and The Mooch… preferably in that order.

Mitchell Gillett says:

so I turned 19 a few months back here​ in canada and I was given a bottle of Auchentoshan 12 for my birthday, what would you recommend I get next? should​ I try a bourbon?

Dex Smith says:

Hi just wondering when can we expect the new channel to start up. And I’m wondering if you could look at a whiskey you would classify as a summertime whiskey. Keep up the good work. 🙂

ChrisC says:

Glen doesn’t mean river, it means valley, like a river valley. Rivers usually run through glens, but not all glens have rivers in them.

William Wall says:

great video

Nathan D says:

Daniel have you ever tried adding saline (salt water) to whisky. As you may know salt is a favour enhancer and is currently popular with mixologists. What are your thoughts on using it for whisky tasting?

Dane Ainokea says:

Glen is also the name given to every japanese boy that comes out bloody (Hawaii joke).

Guys, can you do a review on OYO? And are you able to get your hands on OYO Rye? Would love to see a comparison to one or two other whiskies that are high percentage in rye.

charlie.g.hague says:

I thought Glen was Pete’s friend? I think he’s also Doug’s cousin. 😉

Yong Hun Shin says:

got to your channel through modern rogue and been loving watching your videos on whisk(e)ys wondering if you guys have done a review on any canadian whiskies? I recently bought one called “Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye.” There was a huge hype about this one and finally got my hands on one. I like it quite a lot, but I would like to know what you guys think of it!

Great job with the vids though! Keep up the great work!

Jo Chang says:

Time to open my own distillery: GlenJose.
