Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 12-year-old Sherry

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.76 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N: Much like Bunna 12yo's from the 1990's with its old sherry vibe on seriously overripe sherried-fruit notes and a small touch of vegetal decay alongside. Develops with super-ripe apples and a lovely creamy element.
    T: Soft and Mortlach-like [21yo certainly WB] - although a little more focused, yet still mildly hazy in direction. Soft shoe polish=rancio and soft-sponge-mulch ensues.
    F: Becomes a tad heathery before exiting hastily.
    C: Compares far more favourably beside the current 12yo expression [2017]. by some way.

    One dimensional profile, if you do not like heavy sherry do not waste your money.
    • Nose
      Sherry, prunes, figs, dark chocolate and notes of newly treated leather.
    • Taste
      Basically it does exactly what it says on the tin so to speak, loads of sherry but it is nothing of quality in my view. Simple profile nothing more to say really. There is also a little blackcurrant jam and a few dark treacle notes
    • Finish
      Quite short, on er would you believe sherry.
