    Another yummy 'dronach bomb.
    • Nose
      Strong on PX. Almost overwhelming rum-raisin.

      Damp wood and wet soil.

      Sweeeet.
    • Taste
      Prune compote with dark choco topping.

      Thick and oily.

      Light sulphor and dark cured salty ham.
    • Finish
      Long, a little drying as spice develop.

  10. St. Pauli scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The dark side of sherry-matured whisky. Lovely.
    • Nose
      Mainly musty, earthy, and damp. Toffee, dunnage warehouse, oxidising grapes, sulphur, and meat stock. The oak leaves soft spices and vanilla. The fruit is mainly on dried variants: sultanas and dates. Later, also Dutch appelstroop (apple treacle) and plain PX sherry.
    • Taste
      Velvety, jammy and rounded. It ends with a slight bitter note. It's a good combination of fruit and sherried, meaty notes. Think of sultanas and Dutch appelstroop, combined with beef stock and struck matches. Does it work? Yes, it does! Further, fresh orange, honeyed malt, and cocoa. 
    • Finish
      Medium length, a tad dry on nutmeg and pepper, but further fruity and earthy. Tobacco, licorice, sultanas, prunes, acetone, and some vague grass notes.
