One look at The GlenDronach Original 12 Year’s all-natural body of deep amber-red gold, and you can already taste the spirit’s rich, sherried taste crossing your lips. Suffice to say, this single malt whisky definitely delivers on its sweet promise as soon as you open the bottle. At first whiff, expect a robust nose of vanilla, spice, and fruit. You take a sip, and waves of creamy sherry–laced with spicy raisin and soft fruit–roll sensuously over your palate. Sealing the deal is a smooth, dry finish, with notes of sherry, nut, and oak. If you like sweet, layered single malts, then this one has your name written all over it. Of course, you knew that as soon as you saw the pictures.
To achieve its rich, creamy taste, The GlenDronach Original 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is matured for at least 12 years in a combination of Spanish Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks. It’s non-chill filtered, bottled at 43%, and best sipped neat (in our opinion). Also, just a reminder: that beautiful amber-gold colour is all natural, baby. Indeed, this luscious spirit is a sweet dream come true.
