12 Year Old Glendronach selected for the Professional Danish Whisky Retailers, the liquid has been matured in Oloroso sherry casks. The bottle is nicknamed Yoda due to the box colour. One of only 3000 bottles.
Nose: Marzipan, ground almonds, and almost herbal with a touch of fennel. Very warming nutmeg. Orange marmalade. Dried apricots. Citrus notes quite zesty, almost. Mixed peel. All feels unusual (not bad, just different) for a GlenDronach.
Palate: A very nice viscous texture. Almonds. Blood oranges. Sultanas. Turkish delight, though not as sweet. Sultanas. Blackberries. Elderberries. Just veering to the acidic with lingering grapefruit and woody note on the finish.
Finish: Long woody finish. Its particularly good for the autumn/winter months, and an excellent dram to accompany salty fish or even cheddar. There is definitely a place for this on your shelf.
