  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    It's a tasty whisky for the lovers of sherry-driven whiskies. It's not really subtle, but neither is it agressive. The pleasant sweet-sour character shines through.
    Having said that, it's not a whisky that I find outstanding in terms of balance between spirit and wood policy. This baby could have come from quite some distilleries if you ask me.

    Verdict: one to skip for the purists, one to buy for the lovers of sherry-matured whiskies.

      After pouring, wood is all that speaks. So it's essential to this this dram some time in the glass. After quite a while, some improvement is noticeable but the wood is still rather dominant. On the other hand, the sherry-influenced notes are - despite being not so subtle - nice: balsamico, cola, treacle, dunnage, toffee, orange zest and forest fruit. The distillery character is not really present anymore.

      In the mouth, this whisky is much more appealing. It's less woody, with nice acidity and much more fruit-driven. The fruit is not from the distillate but from the maturation: dark cherries, caramellised apple, fig, ripe bramble. Further there is polished, waxed wood, toffee, dunnage warehouse, and leaf/tobacco. To the end, it gets pleasantly dry with the wood and spice coming back again. There is no agressive edge whatsoever.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is long and pleasant. It gives leather, prune, dark cherry, balsamico, cola, tobacco and lots of moist wood (the dunnage effect).
