Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Sweet, rich and spicy fruit, with sugared lemons and limes, granny smith apples, honey and caramel.

    Palate: Toffee sweetness, apples, a hint of vanilla and a rich dark fruit background. Water lightens things with more orchard fruit, but without diminishing the richness of the dark fruit hiding underneath.

    Finish: Dusty wood, raisins and sweet fruit leaves

    Comments: A solid sherried whisky sitting at the bottom of the Glendronach range but punching above well above its price-point.

    Really good sherry cask whisky, and comparing prices with other similar drams, good value for 12yo, 43%, unchillfiltered and natural colour. Yes, the 15 and 18 are better, but with this whisky, you do get what you pay for and this is well worth the money.

    The descriptions on the box make it sound way better than it is. Its good, but i expected more. Im on my second bottle, since so many positive reviews I'd thought i give it another chance so I got another bottle. It disappoints again. I mean its not bad, if you want a medium bodied sherry scotch for the price, this is probably the best you''re gonna get. Personally, I like the macallan 12 better, its richer and has more body. If you can get that, get it instead. Overall: Its a good sherried dram, but i was expecting more. The nose is sweet, and you''d think the palate is going to carry what the nose is telling you. Its just on the palate its not that thick and creamy like the notes that are on the box what woud lead you to believe. I probably wouldn''t buy another bottle, If you want something easy drinking thats sherried get the Macallan 12. If you want something like this but sweeter and heavier get the glenflarclas 105

    What a lovely drop! Heavy sherry beauty product with fantastic dark berries flavor and aftertaste all the way. From the first sniff till the last after taste drop. Lovely Good Night cup... ??

    This is very good for a heavily sherried whisky. A fantastic nose of figs and prunes!

    Excellent. Son of friends attending University of Edinburgh brought a bottle back to New York as a Christmas present. This has become an annual gift. I will be sorry when he graduates.

    17 year old? Someone told me that due to the distillery closing from 96 til 2002 all the whisky that is marked 12 year old is actually 17 or 18 year old as none was produced til march spril 2002. So by that logic this is a v good value 18 year old if bottled in jan 2014. Its a nice story anyway and a lovely drop!! 21st October 2014
