I like the Glendronach 15 Y which is taken out of production by the distillery, as you all probably know. I posted tasting notes of the 12 year from the following source:

It's a nice whisky site with a lot of tasting notes. The site is originally in French, but has a version in English.
Glendronach 12 Y OB
The nose is exceptionaly sweet. The first nosing is very discrete, but later a kind of diluted sherry smell becomes obvious. This comes from the special maturation process this bottle has had: long years in sherry casks, and bourbon as a finishing cask. The exact contrary of most of the sherry finish whiskies. The palate is discrete too, with a kind of bitter vanilla which is rather unique. A relatively short finish, with honey hints. An very interesting bottle.
This tasting notes makes me curious. Think I'm going to try one myself in the near future.
And please keep giving granny a bottle of sherry for her birthday, so good sherry whisky's can also be produced in the future
