So after reviewing the Virgin Oak finish, today I review the Sauternes finish. Sauternes is a sweet desert french wine made with grapes that have been infected by “noble rot” that partially turns the grape into a raisin.
So after a delicious Virgin (oak), my hopes on this one are high.
“Umm... I really don't like the finish. If you like PX Glendronach this one may be worth trying by yourself ”
This dram has a cooper-like color.
Nose (88): more than average. honey, fruits, citrus, spices, plums, vanilla.
Palate (87): smooth, oily. honey, fruits, wood, cocoa, spices, citrus.
Finish (87): longer than average. honey, cocoa, wood.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Glendronach 14 Year Old / Sauternes Finish Speyside Whisky with 87 points over 100.
Do you like Parliament? Not the same thing but something similar, not a bad whisky but I don’t like the way the finish play on the whisky.
