Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whisky displays an inviting, deep amber hue, suggestive of the Spanish oak sherry casks in which it has matured—a visual promise of richness and complexity.
The olfactory experience is both nuanced and opulent. Initial impressions are greeted with aromatic layers of dark fruits—primarily figs, prunes, and raisins—augmented by undertones of oak, nutmeg, and a waft of warming spice. The nose is further enriched by hints of leather and tobacco, adding maturity and complexity to the profile.
The initial sip brings forth an intricate blend of flavors. At the forefront are the dark fruits that were hinted at in the nose, but now they are enveloped in a lush tapestry of spices—cinnamon, allspice, and a touch of clove. A delicate interplay of flavors unfurls: bittersweet chocolate, aged leather, and toasted almonds create a rich and complex yet well-balanced profile.
The finish is long, satisfying, and leaves behind a delightful marriage of sweetness and spice. The oak influence is not to be ignored, as it leaves a lingering complexity that evolves, revealing layers of fruit and spice even minutes after the sip.
Robust yet velvety, the whisky's mouthfeel enhances its intricate flavors, wrapping them in a creamy, almost oily, texture that fills the mouth and extends the flavor experience.

The GlenDronach 15 is as good or maybe better than Macallan 18, and costs less than a third that Macallan costs. The first edition sold out. Stock up now while you can. Third Base is great to deal with.
I’ve had the 12 and now the 15, both are great. Very smooth with a little sweetness as expected with the sherry barrels. Would recommend to anyone looking for this taste profile and I will be buying again!
Great nose, great taste and smooth beyond belief.
