    A sample as result of the Glendronach tasting.

    Nose is fabulous; nice and sweet.

    Initial taste is a bit creamy and "thick".

    Finish: long and nice

    Price: probably the only negative point: prices for Glendronach SC whiskies are sky high.

  9. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Good stuff! I especially like the combination of earthy and fruity in this whisky.
    • Nose
      If not from the colour, the sherry influence is immediately noticeable from the nose. Sharp initially, but that vanishes quite quickly. What remains is a friendly nose of dried fruit (sultanas, dates), fresh plum compote, orange. Next, there is honey, a slight cereal note, wet wood, some mint and nail polish remover. With water, darker aromas like dunnage warehouse and gravy emerge.
    • Taste
      Rather sweet associated, but with some acidity and hardly dry. Extremely jammy and fruity (mainly sultanas, but the plum and pineapple are noticeable). Water brings more balance, with a meaty note, earthy tobacco, cocoa, coffee, and honeyed cereals. There is a slight grassy undertone that works as a "fraicheur".
    • Finish
      The finish gets spicier (pepper, clove, cinnamon), and drier than on the palate. It's still within boundaries. The fruit mellows down, the earthy side remains.
