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.

Starts promising, but shows multiple flaws/problems.
Initially musty, with brown sugar notes and Cognac-like perfume. With water, more vanilla, raisin, but also strong cardboard note.
On the palate, sweet, round and rich caramel flavor.
Very short finish due to excessive use of caramel coloring.

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.
