  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nice and rounded. A friend to a lot of persons.
    • Nose
      PX influence = 100%. Dried fruit (mainly sultanas), caramel, maple syrup, cocao, honey, apricot and peach. Still a little "fraicheur" of mint. 
    • Taste
      Sweet and coating, with loads of dark sugar, dried fruit, stewed plum, sherry, cocoa, coffee and mint.
    • Finish
      Still syrup-y, with ample dried fruit (this time, more date than raisins), apricot, cocoa, and some pepper.

    • Finish

  10. alectron scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Transferring previous Note (2011.12.29) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      quite a faint nose
      as well. couverture/chocolate, hazelnuts, juniper, old wood, tea
      leaves, mushrooms, dusted sugar, mushrooms, meaty (85)
    • Taste
      chocolate syrup with a good portion of leather, some herbal cough drops, then turning sweeter, the dusted sugar again, (88).
    • Finish
      then even some malty notes next to the complex sherry & malt notes,
      quite a bit of dryness as well but hardly any wood to taste, sligtly
      card board ish, feels somewhat alcoholic in the end at the beginning
      which seems to subside and is replaced by some more syrupy sweet
      notes.(87)
