  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Seriously good, yet not the best Oloroso matured GD I had.
    • Nose
      Rather closed for a GD. Yet, it's the friendlier side of oloroso matured GDs, mind you. No real sulphuric nor meaty smells, just dunnage warehouse and oxidising grapes. Further, there is orange juice, prune, date, treacle, coffee and cocoa.
    • Taste
      Now we're talking! Full-bodied, with nice acidity, and initial dryness as oloroso matured whiskies can deliver. The taste is full of clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, treacle, prune, coffee and the most dark chocolate you can imagine. Water is recommended, as it edges off the dryness. 
    • Finish
      A nice warming, spicy aftertaste (cinnamon, clove), with dried fruit (date, prune), coffee, and dark chocolate.

  7. Ikkakumon scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Really very good.
    • Nose
      Classic Sherry, ripe red fruits, grapes, milk chocolate, hazelnuts and almonds, some oak and smoke.

      With water: a bit of tobacco in addition.
    • Taste
      Mix of fruits (cherries, blackberries, oranges, grapes ...), coffee chocolate, a lot of spices, medium drier mouth on the oak.

      With water: syrupy side more intense.
    • Finish
      Long enough on wood and spices.

  8. j j scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    If the finish had more intensity, this was 92 points
    • Nose
      Interesting nose, typical dronach sent with a bit more polish and smoke. fruity touch appears.
    • Taste
      Nice cinnamon and dark chocolate mix,

      herbs and spices. raisins and pear.
    • Finish
      Delicate, a bit too short for my liking.

      lovely fruits appear, bramble and prunes

  9. markjedi1 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Holy crap, this is a grand
    sherried whisky. Still around for 125 EUR. Recommended! Thanks, GlenPiWi.
    • Nose
      The nose starts on the classics:
      plums, figs, rum raisins with an underlying layer of roasted nuts. Then some
      almond paste, freshly polished saddle, milk chocolate and sniffing tobacco. A
      touch of woodsmoke. Quite wonderful.
    • Taste
      Nice attack with a mouth filling
      creaminess, almost syrupy in fact. That makes for a nice bridge to the 
      Sirop de Liège. Orange marmalade, chocolate with a hint of espresso. Nicely
      spiced, too. Black pepper and cinnamon. Mildly drying from the oak, but far
      from oaky. Very nice and complex. Layered, as they say.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long and sweet
      with a great spiciness.

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Great nose, but the taste is less exceptional. Still a very good whisky though.
    • Nose
      Sweet fruit candy (pink Tumtums). Prune, cherry, almond paste, date, raisin, fig, caramel fudge, hazelnut, malt, oak, cigar and eucalyptus.
    • Taste
      Prune, date, raisin, hazelnut, caramel and spice.
    • Finish
      Prune, cocoa, raisin, caramel, date, mocha, chestnut, malt and a whiff of smoke.
