Top reviews for GlenDronach 12 Year Old Original:

— Near perfect bottle-will be stocking my bar with this from now on! The nose has a mulled spiciness to it and the flavor switches it up by being only slightly spicy, very little heat. Medium weight mouthfeel and a good pleasing mouthfeel.

— Really an easy drinking Scotch. Sweet and lightly smoked. The mix of PX and Olorosso casks is perfect for my palette. I tasted this head-to -head with Macallan 12 and was surprised at the results. This beat Macallan 12 easily. (At least according to both me and the Misses). I paid about 150% the cost of Macallan 12 for this. Maybe you’ll think it’s worth 150% the cost of The Macallan 12. It’s a good pour but it should be considering the cost.

— My desert island scotch. The sherry is perfectly weighted - still obviously drinking whisky, but its sweetness leads without being overpowering. This for sherry, Talisker for peat, and I'd probably be set for life.

Greg
Greg,
My introduction to Glendronach was the 15 year Revival, which I describe a scotch with full-flavor, depth and texture. So, I wanted to try their entry bottle, the 12 year. And I’m impressed. Yes, 3 years aging makes a difference. Still, this 12 year is a palatable delight. Flavor rich sherry and sweet spicy heat, it goes down easily. Great addition to my bar.

Drinks smoth, great sherry taste and full body scotch. This is an incredible value and drinks far above its price point.

Spicy and smooth. Very little peat in the flavor, very enjoyable.

Jordan,
Smoother sherry scotch with a bit of spice on the end. Minimal to no peat. Hard to beat at this price point for me.

Kevin,
Come to daddy! Where you been hiding? I just got this, so god knows I might have an entirely different opinion by the time I get through the bottle, but right now it seems a great value, and a bit different from the Speyside whiskey I'm most used to.

Piotr,
Incredible smell - full, sweet, sherried. Dry taste, a little spicy, next vanilla. Quite long finish sweet notes, some raisins. It is a really good whisky. Only spicy taste is stopping me from adding this whisky to my favorites.

Soft. Some more character needed.

Bit spicey . Mild Smokey peat and honey.flavor wheel suggests a more complex whisky than I taste.
