Smooth, sherry flavoured whiskey. Not sharp on the nose, or tongue. Just enough zing to it. Vanilla, fruity and very enjoyable.
An excellent Highland whiskey.
This bottle is the definition of smoothness. Sherry nose with cream.
It is not a sherry bomb, but has a lot of its influences. This doesn't bother me because at not even one moment, I am overwhelmed by it, but guided by the sweet, vanilla and slight oaky mouthful along with cream. The finish is not strong, but long, like it should be. This is one of the best price-quality whiskies available.
Upon removing the cork an intense sweet aroma somewhat akin to red wine welcomes you. The sip is honeysweet with a simultaneous "bite" that makes it enjoyable to roll the Wisky along your tongue, providing stimulus from the sweet tip all the way through the bitter rear. That leaves you with both an aftertaste as well as an afterscent, with a strong sherry character. It stands out so much, providing a gratifying feeling after the drink, in the same category as post-copulation fulfillment.
Der duale Sherryeinfluss prägt diesen Whisky massiv und sehr angenehm.
In der Nase Vanille, Rosinen und reife Beeren. Cremiges Mundgefühl mit tiefer, schwerer, sherrygeprägter Fruchtsüsse. Im nicht allzu langen Abgang kommen pfeffrige Noten sowie die Bitterkeit des Holzes hinzu.
Guter und süffiger Malt mit gutem PLV!
Rich and unctuous sherry and more sherry. Honey and butter and nuts. Very good.
Oh that's good. Sherry, oh so smooth, friendly, mild. Wow, I've been missing out. excellent bang for the buck. Would buy again.
All sherry and sherry funk, though mild. Raisins, dates, figs, an amalgamation of dark fruits. Slight carmel.
There are those dark fruits, dusted lightly in powdered sugar. Mild fruit glazed doughnuts.
Glaze remains. Red berries and mineral water. I could live in this finish.
Sherry, juicy, spicy afternote
Toller Whisky mit gutem PLV.
Viel Frucht wir Orange, leichte Vanille und Gewürze.
Würziger Antritt, der einer tollen fruchtigkeit weicht.
Mittellang, nussig und Eiche.
um sherry bastante arredondado, suave e vínico, excelente single malt
frutas vermelhas, uva passa e chocolate
cremoso, amadeirado e picante
permanece o apimentado tendo na sequência um pouco de laranja
A nice smooth sherried whisky but lack complexity and finish.
Sweet, cereals, raisin, nutty and marmalade.
Smooth, buttery, rich orange, macadamia nuts, quite simple on flavours.
A little sherried lift but then quickly leaves.
Rich and creamy sweetness that turns into a sourness in palate, with long and little spicy finish

Beautiful nose & colour, delicate oily glass, fruity warming easy drinking scotch. Sherry & oak on a finish that I wished was just a little less oaky. Will enjoy again in my growing collection. I found this to have a better than Nose than palate. My glencairn, smelt like a fruitcake the morning after.🤫
Chocolate & dry raisins, sherry. Nice.
Instant warmth, nose better?? Rich sherry but overpowering wood!
Delightful, medium finish, peppery spice, winey👍
sherry, sweet, honey.. overall a damn good whisky
Tej whisky poprostu trzeba spróbować. Najlepsza podstawka w kategorii ex-sherry. Słodka, winna, treściwa.
The sherry finish is certainly evident from start to finish. It is easily picked up on the nose and it comes right to the fore front on the palate. Easy, pleasant drinker when you want something on the sweet side.
The GlenDronach 12 year old is a popular entry-level example of the “sherry bomb” style of single malt whisky
Sweet, creamy vanilla, hints of ginger that's the spices are, toffee, green apple and smooth butterscotch.
Warm, rich oak and rich sherry sweetness, soft fruits like raspberries, cherries and pears. Hints of raisins. Full mouth feel and delicious
Medium to long, drying slightly bitter wood end with some nuts
A great Highlands representation and a good introduction to sherry monsters
Bold flavors, but lacking in body and finish
Vanilla. Sherry, lots of sherry. Young oak (spicy) and fruit.
Definitely the best part of this whisky!
More sherry. Toffee. Dried fruit. Oak. Citrus, almost more a orange zest (bitter and spicy) velvety.
Not very long. The sherry, citrus and dried fruits are what linger.

Beautiful twelve-year-old sherry bomb. Not too complex but pretty delicious, especially for beginners. The nose is slightly better than the palate. Great price to quality.

probably in my top 5 Whiskies that I've had, love me a PX Cask and this drop screams it, those sweet Xmas fruit flavours just take you straight to Fruitcake and gets you wanting to go back for more.
on the nose dark fruits, raisins, creamy fruit cake, and some almonds.
on the palate cream with light sherry spice, red fruits and some oak
on the finish mouthwatering, sweet oak
a very nice whisky with lost of sherry influence.
on the nose i get dark fruit and milkchocolat, nice spices and fruitcake.
on the pallet there is a lot of spices and sherry sweetness. finishing with some mouthwatering oak.
one of my favorites
Very gentle and friendly Sherry with sweetness and fruit, lovely dram to relax with.
Heavy dry wood flavor. Tastes like dark and rich fruits without much extra sweetness.
On the second bottle. The sherry blends well with the spirit to give a smooth integration. There is a great blend of spices, fruits, and oak.
easy to drink, very soft and easy whisky to enjoy throughout the week
Hot and boring. Avoid!
My go to "simple" sherry dram. a lovely combo of spices like nutmeg, ginger with a strong sweetness and sherry palate
Total sherry bomb. it starts with Cinnamon and Baking spices, quickly turning to a nuttiness that's almost bitter. It reminds me of raw walnuts. The sherry fruitiness takes over and gives tons of dried fruit and honey, I even get grapes on the nose. The finish is long and warm, much nicer than you'd expect from 43%. I definitely recommend it for sherry fans.
sweet, fruity, rich sherry and hint of honey
fruchtig, Sherry in der nase.
starker Sherry auf der zunge mit wurze.
good sherry type. taste go away quite fast.
clear, oak, fine, fruits, raisins
Vlak van smaak valt snel weg.
Klopt voor in de mond wel maar achterin is hij weg
Very nice all around whisky. The palate follows the nose. The sherry cask maturation gives a lot to this dram.
Sherry notes and spice.
fruchtig / spicy / Vanille
very warm and full, and not at all what I expected...
fruity with hint of vanilla
starts off spicy... gives way to a Sherry and oak taste.. very full flavored for me tasted very thick...
a grapefruit taste slowly faded into almost a nutty flavor that lingered for a very long time
Sherry, fruits and subtle sweetness. with light chocolate notes. GlenDronach is one of the best when it comes to Sherried Whiskies. It is fairly priced and if you have any love for Sherry whiskies, you need to get this one.
Strong, smooth and spicy. Some earthiness and wood, no smoke and not sweet.
One of the best whisky.
Nice. Malty, sweet, some honey, strong & smooth.
milde fruitige whisky
Smooth Scotch, little vanilla taste, short smooth finish
initial nose is slight allspice, ginger, sourfruit candy, taste, honey, vanilla, apple, pear, slight bite and a fairly dry finish.
raisins, fruity, creamy, mild
heavy sherry, wine, raisins, sheep's furr (sic).
wood, raisins in the taste, then spice, long dry finish with bitter wood, marzipan, nuts.
very good whisky.
little to cherry loaded
Whisky très doux idéal après un repas
Volle smaak. Je ruikt en proeft sherry. Mooie whisky.
Dominant Sherry flavor. Great sweet aftertaste.
zacht zoet met tofee en noten.
hinting at the depth of the 18-year, but is a bit chemical for my taste.
Ik kan er kort over zijn: geweldig!! En neus van donker, sappig fruit, toffee, rozijnen en iets als een nat herfst bos. De smaak is zoet, fruitig, sherry en vol. En droog mondgevoel en een bittertje als van cacao tot slot. Wauw !

Warm, dark fruit. Nuts.
dried fruit up front. Nuts behind the fruit
Hotter up front than I expected at 43% ABV. palette and nose match up in regards to the fruit. some sour fruit notes mid and late palette. tofee and hint of vanilla. touch of oak.
pleasant. slightly sour notes but not unpleasant.
fruit and sherry, did not do it justice my first try..had it after Lagavulin. Will need to try again on its own.
very smooth taste of fruit nd anilla, not much smokeynes in it. a really good cherry whisky
This certainly is a sherry monster; packed full of dried fruits, golden syrup and spice.
tres bon. chaud mais veloute
My favorite sherry matured 12 year old whisky. Matured in a combination of PX & oloroso sherry amazing value for money sweet and fruity on the palate nose floral notes the finish is medium smooth and sweet this is a must try whisky especially at this price range.
Wärmend und an Fruchtmarmelade erinnernd. Etwas für die kalten Tage.
fruit, balanced, spice finish
Fruity, vanilla, oak, sweet but not too much, pleasant
Not overwhelming, but very nicely balanced.
Lovely warming fruits over an oak character. Very smooth drink without sacrificing the full body.
Rich fruits, citrus, mulled wine spices.
Creamy, smooth, rich oak, soft fruits & sherry sweetness. Dry finish.
Warmth is present from mid-palate and slowly diminishes.
strong sweet note. crisp finish
At last, the long awaited tasting of my Glendronach 12Y (bottled 2013) which is actually 18Y because of the 6Y distillery closing.
For more info on this topic check: https://wordsofwhisky/glendronach-is-a-lot-older-than-the-label-says/
This dark amber 43% Speysider spent it's years on a combination of PX en Oloroso wood.
It is unfiltered and uncoloured.
After pouring, sweet dark sherry fruit raises from my (with long legs covered) glass. Raisin, prune, blackberry and vanilla lead out but ginger, hazelnut and bakery oven complete this wonderful nosing.
Alcohol is nicely hidden.
Harsh and hefty sherry oak on the palate at first zip. It feels a lot stronger than the 43% at this point. But with every following zip, the palate improves. Until it all ends in a soft sweet and creamy coffee, caramel and spicy fruit.
Nice improvement of the hefty start.
The medium sweet warm teethcovering finish, offers heavy dark sherry and dry spicy oak along with a nutty toffee. Very nice and the best part of the tasting.
Powerful tasteful and balanced I would call this one.
I didn't have this 12Y without the 6Y bonus, so I have to guess that this bonus one became heavier, oakier and darker with every bonus year duh.
I liked this one very much. It's a heavy sherrie bomb that comes very close to the Allardice.
I have to rate this with at least 92 points.
Go get yourself one of this bonus year bottlings.
Lovely whisky to relax with. Tastes like walking through a cherry orchard.
stark Sherry in der Nase, süss, Vanille- im Mund sehr angenehm mit mittlerem Abgang. Sehr schön für den Preis
mooi startende whisky
Sweet sherry, orange fruit, and vanilla on the nose. Very enticing beginning which doesn't disappoint on the taste. Rich and creamy with fruit and honey on the palate. Silky smooth finish with a slightly nutty and slightly bitter orange aftertaste. Really engaging for a 12 year old.
Sherry, orange, vanilla
fruit and honey
nuts and bitter peels
this is my defining meaty, sherried scotch. full bodied, richly sweet, it tastes of ripe red fruits.
Very good for the price. I liked the rich smell of nuts. Didn't like wet ashes in the finish.
I had a very good approach with this whisky. Rich and fruity nose and quite comes sweet taste.
While going deep into it, it revealed a bit flat, especially for the sweet sherry notes. Not bad at all, but you can find something better for a similar price.
Wow! What a strong nose of fresh oranges, or orange zest. Remind me a bit of La Copa vermouth. Sweet and smooth on the tongue followed by a bit of spiciness. Still some orange zest. Longer finish than I was expecting. The only place I notice a hint of smoke is in the finish. I'm impressed.
Fantastic tasting whisky, best for price range, sweet, smooth yet complex taste, giving pleasure determining the various flavours present, medium to long finish
schmeckt genauso wie der glendronach 2004 aber nur ein kleines bisschen schwächer
intensiv alte Fruechte
yeah good, brennt in der Zunge. bleibt lange im Mund
heerlijke volle whisky met een hele volle afdronk. zeer de moeite waard!!
Sehr gute Sherry Bombe
lekkere whisky niet te zoet.
voor mij een blijver
Nice sherry dram
Very, very nice! Pricier than I like, but you get what you pay for with this Highlander. Complex and flavorful, this would be my go-to Highlands whisky if not for my limited budget.
very tasty sherry cask whisky!!!
