  3. St. Pauli scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    No need to say that this is a real gem.
    • Nose
      A delightful old whiskies, in both ways. It's old, but also old style. Perfect how such an old sherry matured whisky is still relatively fresh and hasn't become woody/mouldy. Of course, the wood is obviously there, but it's all balanced. Think of richly polished furniture, old leather, cinnamon, juicy white raisins, plenty of orange, tinned peach and vanilla.  Well, maybe it's not a fully sherry matured whisky, but who cares. It's a heck of a nose. Finally, there is a faint hint of wood smoke.
    • Taste
      Very oily and delicate, with all sorts of liqueurs, mainly orange and dried fruit, polished oak, beeswax, cinnamon and a little bit of pepper. Still, some waxy malt shines through, great!
    • Finish
      Long and pleasant. It doesn't get too bitter, as could be with these old whiskies. There is ample cinnamon, honeyed and waxed malt, raisins, oranges, some cocoa, and walnut.

  6. Sonett scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    A gorgeous dram, probably the best Glendronach I have tasted.
    • Nose
      A powerful nose of raisins, figs, dates and plums in combination with old oak and barrel 
    • Taste
      Enters smooth, then increasing to a powerful taste with lots of dark fruits, all of above. Then slowly increasing warm but mild spices
    • Finish
      Medium long finish going from spicy fruits over to a pleasant wood and oak finale
