97 points Wine Enthusiast: "The deep amber hue and enticing toffee and cigar wrapper aromas hint at what's to come. The palate opens big and luscious, echoing toffee along with cocoa and leather, drying into an exceedingly long, complex finish that resounds with dried date, fig and cherry plus dusty cinnamon and cayenne spice. Alcohol 48%. (Dec 2019)"

Malt Advocate: "This new 12 year old 'Original' expression is certainly my favorite of the 12s (and the 15). I feel that Glendronach expresses itself best when it is not dominated by the sherry, allowing a greater balance of flavors. This whisky was originally matured in sherry casks, but was then (fortunately) aged in bourbon casks for the remainder of its maturation. The result? A richly flavored, nicely balanced whisky expressing notes of sherried fruit, burnt caramel, light toffee, and nuts, all underpinned by a soothing malty foundation. Yum! (2004 3rd Quarter (Vol. 13, #3))"
