Whisky Reviews for Glendronach 12-year-old
45 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.52 points
- Very sweet and creamy. Alcohol is not noticeable. But has we all Sauternes maturation for me a perfumed Soapy touch. But then luckily after 2-3 sips away.
- Great whisky, one of the sweeter drams, although not typical sherry one. I would say the Revival used to be a bit better, but this one is also very good.
Sweetness, some sherry notes. Pretty solid on the nose.
Fruit, nicely wine-influenced, some sherry-like notes. Taste is fine, just enough heavy, solid and intense. Spices. Delicate in the mouth.
More rough, woody, not as dry as in Virgin Oak 14y. Medium longevity.
Fruits, vanilla, sugar.
Fruit, peach, vanilla, caramel, banana.
Caramel, peach, vanilla.
- The Sauternes taste is pleasantly and not overly integrated.
Honey, citruses, vanilla, herbals, apple compote and spicy oak.
Fruits, spicy oak, marzipan, milk chocolate and dessert wines.
Medium length, spicy.
- Jim Murray has awarded 93.5 points to the 12 Year Old Sauternes. "Superb!"
- White plum, peach, pear, lemon peel, melon, apricot jam, butter, honey, cider, bun, lollipop, green tea, sawdust, vegetable oil. Slightly prickly and lacking balance. I also clearly felt the aroma of white wine from Chardonnay (or even champagne)!
- Delicious. Not really complicated, but delicious. The limit to the range of whiskys that I really like, but he does not quite because of the sour note, which was not unpleasantly strong, but something and I do not need that, 79 points.
Apple and honey. But not too cute. Some grass and a very clear and spicy oak for 12 years. Fresh, yet supple. Something nutty comes along and slightly dry nuances are noticeable. Herbs. After inclusion of the palate comes intensive vanilla.
Tingling and fruity. Slightly sour, green apple, almonds. Oak is getting more intense. After swallowing, it finally dominates. The alcohol is quite noticeable, but does not bother (yet). With each sip it gets spicier, drier (without the sweetness disappears completely) and the oak settles.
Pretty long, but still in the range "medium length". Spicy apple, slightly sour.
