  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    It's always a pleasure to get to taste whisky from a new distillery, yet also difficult as its distillery character is not known yet.
    Having said that, this whisky is a nice surprise as to me, it seems to have the characteristics of a traditional whisky rather than the utter modernist whisky. It's malty and to a certain extent dusty. It's not without the influence of the first fill bourbon, which makes the whisky balanced at this point in time. I hope that Bus has some less active casks to marry with the first fill bourbon casks when their stocks are more mature.

    My interest in Bus Whisky has been aroused and I am looking forward to future bottlings.
    • Nose
      84 84
      The nose is quite interesting to me as it somehow reminds me of some old pot still whisky. It's rather grainy, nutty and dusty: porridge, rice pudding, paranut, burlap, bales. There is also fruit, mainly apple and gooseberry. Then there is a creamy element of vanilla.
    • Taste
      81 81
      In the mouth, this whisky behaves a bit restrained and mostly shows its grainy side. Muesli bar with nuts, plain barley, apple juice, vanilla.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finale is moderate and smooth. Primarily, the cereal still shines through. The texture is a tad creamier now, like a refreshing milkshake. Some baking spices complete the pleasant finale.
