    Good Body

    2015 bottling...Extraordinarily balanced. I've a preference for older single malts, but this 12 year old truly realizes the potential of its class. Heavily sherried, yet the lovely imparts of P.X. and oloroso casks do not drown out the very high quality of this single malt. Attention to detail is evident. Well refined, and full of character at 43%, this is one for the connoisseurs.

    A Great Staple

    This isn't a bottle you reach for on a special occaision. This is the bottle you reach for on week nights when you just want something nice to sip while watching Netflix. It's a great expression of the style for a very good price. I think you'll find it disappears pretty damned quickly.

    This One Needs Time

    Overall a reasonably complex and finely sherried single malt - but this one needs some time to "air out" and breathe a bit. The first few glasses from my current bottle seemed a bit harsher than some of the GlenDronach whiskies I've had in past years. The finish initially had a rather unpleasant smoke character, akin to sucking on a charcoal briquette. After drinking the bottle down to the top of the label and letting it rest for a week or so, the charcoal aftertaste noticeably diminishes and the real character of this whisky really shines through with its fruity/sherry flavors. If you like sherried whisky, give this one a try.

    I'm on the fence

    it's okay! I don't think its exceptional nor I do think it is that smooth. The finish was a bit rough. would I serve it to guests? Sure. But I don't think it would get 5 stars. In fact, I might just have talked myself into going to the ABC store and getting some Glenfiddich 12 😜

    Great start, terrible finish

    This is smooth and gentle scotch, the kind that non scotch drinkers can enjoy. You can definitely taste sherry/wine and smell it. However, for me, after drinking, the most important part of a scotch is what i get when I breathe out my nose. This scotch smells like a wet dish cloth. I enjoy the initial flavor but the after taste/smell is such that I can't drink Glendronach 12. FYI, My Favorite scotches Glenmorangie 18, Glengoyne 15, Highland park any, Ardbeg Auriverdes, Laguvulin 16, Bowmore 18

    Not bad at all

    Very nice whisky if you are on the sweet side, sherry infused with a smooth sweet and sour fruity taste. I didn't pick up any chocolate and hazelnuts like described above but I'm just a novice. Definitely a sweet toffee lingering finish. Worth the money!

    A great single malt

    Wifey picked it up for me. She's got good taste and so does this scotch. Smooth

    17 year old?

    Someone told me that due to the distillery closing from 96 til 2002 all the whisky that is marked 12 year old is actually 17 or 18 year old as none was produced til march spril 2002. So by that logic this is a v good value 18 year old if bottled in jan 2014. Its a nice story anyway and a lovely drop!!

    Best 12 Yr GENERALLY speaking

    I am personally a fan of the peaty smokey stuff, but sometimes I love a smooth dram. I have purchased this as a gift. We cracked it open at a friend's house and tried it out. He runs into the dining room brings out a new decanter with a little Balvenie 17 in it, pours us two good size drams and says this is going into the decanter. Brought another bottle to a bachelor party and everyone (including the non-scotch fans) commented about how smooth it is. If there is a perfect daily dram, especially with a nice Italian meal, this is it. And it ~55$US, you can't beat it. I highly recommend it to rookies, sophomores and veterans of single malts.

    No peat what so ever.....Almost sweet/syrupy.
    If it were wine I say it was corked.
    Very disappointing.
    I'm going back to Oban & Dalwhinney. Even Singleton.

    Quality and Value

    My favourite whisky so far. Absolutely wonderful. This is why I like whisky.
    Great quality for a good prize = I will surely buy another bottle.
    I can't wait to try the 15yo.

    23rd July 2014

    Needs to breathe

    The first couple of glasses were a little rough around the edges, with clear notes of maple syrup. As the whisky has mellowed since I opened it a few months ago, the sweetness has become more powerful with strong brown sugar notes on the nose, transitioning to a much crisper syrupy body. Definitely hits the sweet tooth.

    An absolute gem

    In a perfect world this expression is what every scotch single malt should be like. This release is WHY I drink whisky.

    27th April 2014


    Plain and simple comment here. Great, sweet, smooth, Sherry infused whiskey. Tastes very nice. Great for the collection, and wonderful for new whiskey lovers. Enjoy my friends :)

    18th April 2014

    Well rounded

    I taste a bit of peat hidden somewhere mixed with in the fruit flavors. Not too sweet, good length finish, nice grainy bite.

    11th April 2014


    A wonderful Sherry malt. Super sweet, very rich. If you want to suggest glenlivet 12 or the Glenfiddich, consider suggestion this one. A great intro scotch, and a great light, rich dram.

    5th April 2014

    Quite nice

    Very drinkable sherried dram; go for the GelnDronach 15 year which is much more intense

    28th February 2014


    It has been a long time since I had a GlenDronach, last time in 75cl bottle, and it is just as delightful as I remembered. Definitely going to order some more.

    3rd February 2014

    Great Performer

    I love this Sherried Speysider. I have yet to taste a better 12 year-old of this style. IMO better than Aberlour 12 and Macallan Gold. It's just a pity that MOM have added an extra £5 to the price since I last bought it.

    19th December 2013

    New Favourite

    After being a long-time fan of Macallan, but sorely disappointed with the last few bottles of their Sherried offerings I've had, I decided it was time for a change. Tried a dram of this and ordered two bottles. Looking forward to a bit over fire-side sipping over Christmas!

    One of the best scotch whiskeys around

    Whilst not going to threaten the whiskey podium... this is a lovely lovely whiskey. A fan of sherried and port finishes... this is one of the better ones. Jason Breen

    1st November 2013


    A go to Scotch for me. Nice value for the buck. Heavy Sherry with a raisiny...Christmas pudding thing going on.Some toffee and spice with a medium long finish. No peat...yeah. A touch better than the Macallan 12 for me.

    25th September 2013


    Nice stuff....definate must have

    16th September 2013

    Beautiful stuff.........

    Medium to heavy sherry influence. Nutty and christmas cake taste. Touch of chocolate and peat. Awesome stuff and a must have. Love it to the MAX.

    13th September 2013

    Read the reviews now I have a bottle :)

    I agree with all the comments. This is a good whisky to drink, sweet but not too sweet, nice after taste too. Would I buy another bottle? Yes

    30th August 2013

    Get the 15 year old Revival

    I bought the 12 and 15 Revival. I would suggest the 15 Revival for a few more $.

    12th June 2013

    Yummy stuff

    A great choice for an everyday sipper for the Sherry Scotch fan. Awesome fruity nose, big flavor and lasting finish. 3 and a half stars, maybe 4.

    6th February 2013


    Quality stuff for fans of sherry monster Scotch fans. Big interesting nose and a full creamy mouthfeel. I will have one in the cabinet at all times when the mood strikes.

    6th February 2013

    Real nice treat

    Enjoyed it very much! Great sherried whisky with a little punch. A nice desert...

    27th January 2013

    Very good

    At the moment number one for me!

    19th November 2012

    First foray into single malts...

    This is beautiful - the sherry leaves a lovely aftertaste and makes you want ot get stuck into this amazing world of single malts even more!

    1st October 2012

    Juicy joy of sipping

    Very drinkable, quite complex nose with lots of well integrated sherry, great palate giving a juicy sensation (a bit like Highland Park) with satysfying finish. With a great quality for value I really recommend this dram.
