E Highland   85Slightly harsh, young nose but has an interesting fruitiness; opens up w/ water and loses the harshness; quite nice palate w/ an unusual candy-like fruitiness with grape fruit (pink? hehe)
Glendronach (Sign) 56%Pic1970
E Highland  883Rich, fruity nose with a hint of peppermint; rich, fruity and spicy palate; somewhat one-dimensional and a bit too spicy for my taste
GlendronachPic12Speyside70781Nice, fragrant nose with dry, spicy sherry, dried fruits and a note of turpentine; rich yet surprisingly dry palate, quite spicy and disappointing after the nice nose (the oak and dried fruits remind me of Spanish brandy)
