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.

Comment:
This is a typical sherried whisky with strong cake flavor and ginger. I think this isn't too much linger drum than they say. Medium after. When adding water, I feel more adhesive material in it that I can't catch before.

Color: deep amber
Nose: Sherry, honey, raisins, cloves, advocaat
Palate: sweet, slightly winey, orange zest, prunes, malted barley
It tastes a little bit like a semi-sweet Sherry with coffee liqueur. Very tasty
Finish: egg liqueur, matchbox, stewed apples, sweet-beery bitterness
Natural color, non-chill filtered, delicious... what more would we want?
Price I paid: 34€

Deutsch
Farbe: tiefes Bernstein
Nase: Sherry, Honig, Sultaninnen, Nelken, Eierlikör
Körper: süß, etwas weinig, Orangezest, Trockene Pflaumen, Gerstenmalz
Schmeckt ein bisschen wie ein halb-süßer Sherry zusammen mit Kaffeelikör gemischt. Sehr köstlich
Finish: Eierlikör, Streichholzschachtel, gebackene Äpfel, süß-Bier Bitterkeit
Natürliche Farbe, nicht kühl gefiltert. Lecker. Was soll man noch möchten?
