  1. dRambo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    very concentrated, very intense, very fruity, very cool, that at the age - if I had blindly estimated at least 18years, like with very good
    • Nose
      lush, fragrant plum compote with cinnamon - passed raspberries and redcurrants, concentrated cherry candy with menthol, oily sweetness with vanilla, tobacco with honey, sherry notes that are very waxy, pouring out of the glass, a pinch of nutmeg, slight seldom sparkling touch of rotten old wood / Damp cellar, complex spicy, spicy wood notes, with some time - oranges, juicy intensive oranges, sprigs dough
    • Taste
      tingles fruity voluminous explosive on the tongue syringe as high-quality Crimean (like effervescent powder - non-alcoholic - entertaining, exciting), the aromas unfold cascading, heavy fruity grape must, dates, roasted caramelized almonds, chocolate, leather, grape seeds, sour cherry jam, iced coffee with cream, Roasting aromas, vegetable bitter substances, pepper, chili
    • Finish
      fruity, peppery, spicy, some mint, darkly bitter-creamy medium-long vanilla and oak are very long on the tongue

  2. Vince' scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Initially strong Sweet with roasted candied almonds, an association of crème brûlée and vanilla followed by plums and a slightly earthy note combined with something that reminds me of wet cellars and tobacco. Light gunpowder, pulmoll cherry and with more oxygen an association with sherry-infused, rotten, wet wood with typical tartar accents and sparkling orange. Taste: Short sweet, caramelized but burnt sugar, raisins, plums, sweet cherries / cherry jam and chocolate accompanied by a pleasant tingling in the mouth. In the course comes a whole torrent of roasted aromas and slightly spicy oak tones that let me associate old leather couch and tobacco combined with a very elegant acidity. A finish with a light residual fruit in the form of cherry, dark chocolate and sweetened coffee. Conclusion: A delicious GlenDronach, which in any case looks older than he is. The variety of flavors is excellent for a 12-year old whisky.

  4. keizerjos scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The nose is great, promises wood, vanilla, pineapple and caramel. The taste more than fully meets expectations; the alcohol is secondary (it burns a bit, but well, I'm a wimp) while the festive Christmas cake rages on your taste buds in full glory. Dried apple, currants, apricot, plums, cinnamon, a tasty little acidity and pepper in the dry aftertaste that continues to chant for a long time. 89 points, every day.

    Typically Glendronach. Very sherry, very tasty (not too dry: a PX?)
