    Simple GlenDronach, not very interesting. In this price category the 12 'Original' is a better choice.
    • Nose
      Pear, almond and caramel.
    • Taste
      Pear, almond, caramel and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Pear, apple and caramel.

  10. irrerelevant scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    N: First, spicy-alcoholic, after 10 minutes, the youth is still in the foreground and it burns easily on the alcohol ... Grain and malt, grape juice, sweet acacia honey, lemon, fresh American oak notes (as from Virgin Oak Casks), vanilla comes later, with water, the honey becomes even clearer
    T: Sweet grape juice, fresh, lively, honey again, alcoholic, but less than the nose suggests (small saps are appropriate), rather flat and thin
    Q: Short, grain, honey, is slightly dry and shows traces of oak, even here, still distinct youth
    The honey notes are beautiful, but that was already everything. With water pleasant, sweet and easy-drinking, but without facets, depth or maturity. Had typed on less than 8 years.
