Comment:
This is classic sherried dram. Not very different from Glenfarclas similar ages. Same profile I would say, same spicy character to it. PX not to prominent.

Nosing: Peach Sherry Vanilla Blackberry

Taste: Sherry Orange Honey

Finish: Almonds Oak Ginger Plum

Comment: There is a great deal of complexity in this whisky - but only across a range of fruit influences, rather than crossing into bitter or savory territory. The Oloroso sherry is more prominent in this whisky than are the Pedro Ximenez casks. There are some hints of spice, but they come and go quickly. Even the presence of oak is merely a soft edge marking the threshold between 'Taste' and 'Finish'.

The GlenDronach 12-year old is as-expected in a very good way. It distinguishes itself from other 12-year old standards, and fits well in The GlenDronach's range.
