  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A nice standard Speysider, with good quality. Always fun to drink.
    • Nose
      Quite intense for a standard bottling. It's very malty, waxy and green. Sweet barley, beeswax, honey, heather, vanilla, and a bit of fruit (pear, pineapple, orange)
    • Taste
      The same malty, flowery expression, with an extra kick of pepper (pleasant). Cereals, porridge, honey, heather. Next to that, there is a fresh green taste of grass and mint. The fruitiness is leaning more towards sweet oranges, but also a bit of dried fruit.
    • Finish
      Medium, malty and a bit woody. It's all very gentle. The pepper is not disturbing, the woody  taste is also pleasant. Further, the same as on the palate.

    On the back of a Knockdhu Ralfy review, I opened this.

    N: Brora meets Strathmill? – and also a little like a personal favourite Arthur Bell 10yo Dufftown [WB] bottling, yet with far more firmness and fruity complexity.
    T: A delicious honeyed farmy note follows with a nice mouthfeel to boot. Feels like this juice has rolled around a few great casks.
    F: A grumpy bear at times, it flourishes in water, oozing savoury milky ambrosia perfectly seasoned with a pinch of salt.
    C: Scottish? Yep. Japanese? Worth sneaking into an Asian-themed blind challenge. Delicious? Dig!
