Connoisseur St. Pauli Tasting note

St. Pauli gave this whisky 90 points
Color
Mahogany
Nose

Dark notes of nutty oloroso sherry descend from the glass into the nose. Roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, meaty malt, oxidising grape, but also red fruit and orange. 

Taste

It's thick and chewy, but pleasantly drying on lots of spices such as pepper, clove, and cardamom. Next to that, there is this typical meaty, nutty and dark oloroso, along with red fruit, dark chocolate, coffee, and marzipan. 

Finish

Long and lingering, with warming cinnamon and cardamom, clove, coffee roast, marzipan and hazelnut, and stewed plum and orange marmalade. 

Comments

Just perfect.

Cheers! Paul

Nose

Big and rich sherried nose with deep aromas of prunes, dates, raisins and sticky treacle. Delicate flavours of marzipan, luscious oranges and cinnamon emerge, accompanied by a whiff of leather (horse saddle), tobacco leaves, tender herbal notes, earl grey tea and a whiff of pencil shavings in the back. An absolutely gorgeous nose!

Taste

Oh boy - this is rich, intense, sweet and creamy! Raisins, dates and figs nicely mingle with lots of Demerara sugar on the palate. This is immediately followed by a warming and lovely spiciness of pepper, cloves and some ginger. Fine notes of marzipan arrive, lingering with subtle bitter orange peel, dark chocolate, espresso and tender almonds and walnuts towards the finish. Very accessible and perfectly balanced. Simply perfect!

Finish

A very long, sweet and spiced finish with Demerara sugar, marzipan and delicate cinnamon. Slightly bitter notes of oranges, expresso beans, almonds and walnuts deliciously mingle towards the end. Stunning!

WITH WATER: A few drops of water slightly enhance the fruity and creamy character of this beauty on the nose. Subtle notes of flint stone and a few more herbs are added to this gorgeous nose. Sweet, creamy and less spicy on the palate with herbal tea, blackcurrant, marzipan, raisins and delicate walnuts. The finish is long, creamy, sticky sweet with oranges, cacao and lovely walnut flavours.

Comments

A full-bodied traditional sherried character. Multilayered, perfectly balanced with depth and complexity. Tremendously creamy, spicy, sweet with lots of dried dark fruits and chocolate aroma, followed by a long and nutty aftertaste. GlenDronach spirit and Oloroso sherry - a fantastic example of a perfect symbiosis! This is whisky making in total perfection! If I had to choose only one bottle of GlenDronach from the fabulous year 1993, it would be cask #33 - NO DOUBT!

Nose

The definition of dark sherry bomb! Tons of dark chocolate, molasses, coffee, mocca, leather. Pronounced wood, but not overly loud. The fruity side is a bit masked here, but it's very good!

Taste

More of the nose plus tons of spices, cardamon, ginger, cinnamon, some almonds, nuts and dried fruits showing up.

Finish

Very long, but also quite drying and bitterish. Wood notes spoil the overall great impression a bit.

Comments

This one really shows why 1993 is considered to be a stellar year for Glendronach!
