Simple GlenDronach, not very interesting. In this price category the 12 'Original' is a better choice.

N: Zunächst scharf-alkoholisch, nach 10 Minuten steht die Jugend noch im Vordergrund und man verbrennt sich leicht am Alkohol... Getreide und Malz, Traubensaft, süßer Akazienhonig, Zitrone, frische amerikanische Eichennoten (wie von Virgin Oak Casks), Vanille kommt später, mit Wasser wird der Honig noch deutlicher


T: Süßer Traubensaft, frisch, lebendig, wieder Honig, alkoholisch, aber weniger als die Nase vermuten lässt (kleine Schlücke sind angebracht), eher flach und dünn

F: Kurz, Getreide, Honig, wird leicht trocken und zeigt Spuren von Eiche, auch hier immer noch deutliche Jugend

Die Honignoten sind schön, das war dann aber auch schon alles. Mit Wasser angenehm, süß und easy-drinking, aber ohne Facetten, Tiefe oder Reife. Hätte auf weniger als 8 Jahre getippt.
