A Quintessential GlenDronach.

James Allardice was the second person to apply for a license to distill Whisky in Scotland, way back in 1826. Them’s some good times, my friend! Over the years, GlenDronach has been owned by a veritable Who’s-Who of the historic lineage of Whisky masters; from Walter Scott, to Captain Charles Grant, and William Teacher & Sons.

The late 1990’s saw some troubled times for the proud distillery, and many thought that the Spirit suffered. But the good times roll again! The BeRaich Distillery Company bought out the property and has restored this Highland single malt to its former glory, and then some. Their entire Whisky line is “Sherried,” meaning matured only in Oloroso Sherry casks. Highland, single malt, Sherry casks, proper aging … We're sold!  

This classy 12-year-old single malt was re-launched in 2009. Aged in a mixture of ex-Sherry casks for a minimum of 12 years. Non-chill filtered, and naturally colored...bottled at 43% ABV, this release is a sweet, creamy dream… err, Dram… with warm, rich oak, and classic un-peated, Sherried notes. This single malt has GlenDronach written all over it. Not to mention it's won a fair share of Gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the World Whiskies Awards, and the IWSC.

Jordan
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.

Wesley,
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.

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.

Joshua,
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.

Soft. Some more character needed.

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