  1. Malty-Malt scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A good twelve year old Dronach.
    Not more and not less. Not very complex but what do you expect after twelve years.
    With a spoon of water a nice and easy drinking whisky.

    [December, 2019] A quick review of a small sample only...

    ...which is a modern herbal-driven sherried dram with a nosing profile I do not really like (but this is just a matter of my personal preference, it is not bad at all) and a delicious and interesting taste/finish. If you like herbal-sherried drams this one is probably a good deal these days, at least worth a try...
    • Nose
      85 85
      The colour is amber and the nose offers a slightly soapy (lavendar) and herbal-driven sherry profile with eucalyptus-menthol notes. It seems they used Caucasian oak for the sherry cask because you never find such a profile with Quercus Alba (American white oak) and it is much weaker with European oak. To be honest, I am not a fan of such an aroma profile but herbal whisky lovers will adore it, most probably. The lavendar-soapy aroma vanishes quickly upon breathing, so no off-note after that.
    • Taste
      89 89
      The taste starts bitter-herbal but quickly the sweet barley sugars and sherry flavours join in and soothe this. The resulting mix is delicious and greatly chewable, it releases more interesting flavours this way (among them chocolatey and nutty impressions). I like it much better than the nose, no doubt.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The dram arrives warming and coating on the palate with some hot moments which are not distracting and absolutely okay for 58% abv. The finish is long and turns winey-sweeter without distracting bitter or drying moments. Water releases additional grassy-earthy aromas in the nose and equivalent flavours on the palate but be cautious not to add too much because the dram flattens quickly. Actually, I like the neat dram best.

    A spicy and fruity glendronach. Admittedly, Glendronach is not really my focus, I only drink Allardice and Parliament, if at all. For a 12-year-old Glendronach, I find this bottling very interesting and extremely tasty, even if I lack a little depth and complexity here. Great filling, 88 points with a tendency to 89 points.

    • Nose
      Light amber rests in the glass, an oily streak sticks to the glass wall, from which you loosen a multitude of oily and viscous drops and pull your webs back into the glass. Dark and dried fruit aroma oozes from the premium snifter, sweet caramel and toffee are added immediately, sugar and cinnamon fall on sun-ripened raisins. The extreme sweetness dominates at the moment over the individual fruit components, only now and then do mandarins and oranges appear alongside a hint of dried herbs and hints of milk chocolate. The alcohol is wonderfully incorporated, the increasing sugary sweetness gradually stimulates the saliva ...
    • Taste
      The first sip flows sweetly and mildly over the tongue, honey and liquid toffee leave a sweet film on the tongue. A hint of vanilla dissolves from caramelized sugar, raisins and other dried berries come into their own. A hint of sour cherries passes by, the alcohol slowly numbs the tongue ... The second sip spices over the tongue, this time dominated by meadow herbs and a dried spice mixture. Plump warmth sticks to the tongue, subtle sharpness arises, creamy milk chocolate and a handful of crushed hazelnuts follow.
    • Finish
      Dark and dried berries with voluminous warmth stick to the palate, voluminous dark wood elements appear, as well as a handful of freshly picked herbs. Every now and then I make a subtle smoke note .... The aftertaste is not particularly powerful and fades away relatively quickly.

    He surprised me positively. Certainly no sherry bomb, but the Oloroso comes out well. The alcohol is well integrated. Long finish with oak, Oloroso, slightly nutty and spicy. 89 points
