GLENDRONACH 12 YEAR OLD: A 12 year old from the Highlands distillery, GlenDronach, a very heavily sherried single malt. Nose, rich cereals, struck match, raisin, cinnamon, caramelised sugar. Opens with some sweeter PX and lots of delicious raw ginger before becoming creamier with hazelnuts. Palate, fruits, peels, buttery. Pain au chocolat, a little marmalade on toast before becoming firmer and nuttier with spiced raisins. Finish, smokey toffee and nut brittle.
