Glendronach 12 Year Old Original Reviews

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.

    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

    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.
