  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Interesting style, relatively light and volatile. Could be the result of having been in the bottle for more than 60 years, but who knows!
    • Nose
      82 82
      Nose: didn't lose its power, but light and lifted overall. There is barley, honeyed cereal, hazelnut and a hint of flowers (flowers in water, lilly). It's just a tad musty on mushroom
    • Taste
      81 81
      Taste: Fuller than expected, with a peppery edge. Still lifted on rose water, lemon and a bit of peach, together with flower stalk / tomato vine, a bit of vanilla and pepper.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Finish: medium, with warming pepper combined with various flowers and orchard fruit.
