Glendronach 12 Year Old Original Reviews
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.

For the price, this is an outstanding whiskey!
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.
I think it is bloody brilliant!!!
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
In a class of its own
GD12 is the very best money can buy at this range. At entry level malt, GD12 far out-distances all other sherry-Speysiders. Yup, best-bang-for you-buck kinda thing. MY DAILY DRAM. (Pls don't raise the price).
It starts with a nice nose, sherry richness coming through with biscuit and cake aromas. Good balance of matltiness, nuttiness, Oak, some spices and berry fruits. The finish is bitter chocolate and dry, but a good entry level Glendronach and a good drinking experience.
A lovely sherried Speysider, almost a 'sherry-monster', and very well priced too. What's not to love?!
A heavy, chewy, Christmas pudding of a whisky: simply delicious. Very similar to Glenfarclas 15yr old, but at 3/4 the price, and arguably better. This is not a subtle dram: it's a big hitter: this is the Big Peat of sherry whiskies.
