Glendronach 12 year old Distillery Bottling Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #620112 Whisky Advocate

 Nicely sherried. Rich, with maple syrup, honey-drenched citrus, sultana, and a good dried oak spice finish for balance. Well done for a 12 year old, and definite competition for Macallan of the same age. (Vol. 19, #2)

K&L Notes

Glendronach was one of our favorite distilleries on our recent trip to Scotland and this 12 year is the best whisky that no one is drinking. Soft, supple, rich, and complex, and finished in PX sherry butts for a kiss of sweetness. This is my new house whisky and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's not going to blow your mind, it's just really really really good. It's what you wish every Speyside malt could taste like. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits buyer)

Rich and sherried, reminiscent of summer and winter treats: caramel apples and roasted, candied nuts. The Glendronach 12 has spicy, rum-raisin aromas, roasted nuts--filberts, Brazil nuts--and baked apple and pear notes, which repeat on the palate, so cotton-candy smooth, and the fruit flavors deepen toward the dry finish. A little smoky? Seems so. Similar to: Aberlour 16. More flavor than: Glenlivet 12. Fiercer, less smooth than: Macallan 12 or Glenmorangie 10. More easygoing but in a somewhat similar profile to: Glendronach Allardice, Aberlour A'Bunadh.
