Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

03. Mar 2017
Pedro Ximénez cask maturation holds a certain magic that is hard to pin down, and combined with some fine Oloroso butts you get a true sherry monster of a Single Malt! On the nose, there is a nice interplay of intense sweetness and fruity acidity with pears, melons and hints of eucalyptus. After a rich brown sugar arrival, the taste gets more aromatic and slightly dry, featuring a pleasant oak complexity. The finish of GlenDronach 12 is lasting, delicate and chocolaty bitter. This malt is a keeper of consistently good quality and a better value than Macallan.
