  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A nice aperitif style whisky. It's not very complex, but very good.
    • Nose
      As naked as an 11 year old whisky can be. Light in colour, and light in style. Icing sugar, pear drops, sweet lemon, mint and vanilla. 
    • Taste
      Not so far away from the nose. It has a bit more body and appearance, with a bit of pepper. The fruity pear is most dominant on the palate. 
    • Finish
      A tad grassier now, and a bit more on vanilla. Later, the fruit becomes zesty (bitter lemon zest) and is accompanied by ginger and pepper.

  3. retlaw did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Imperial 11 yo 1996/2008 'Lime Pair' (46%, The Nectar, Daily Dram, 303 bottles) Colour: white wine. Nose: a very fresh and clean whisky, blending notes of clean grain and mashed potatoes with rather delicate notes of lemon pie and fresh butter. Simple put most pleasurable, a perfect summer malt as far as the nose is concerned. Mouth: sweet, clean and fruity, more on pears this time (butter pears) with just a slight zestiness. Pleasant oakiness coming through after a while, that spices up the whole. Finish: medium long, clean and fruity, with a little pepper. Comments: this one reminds me of some young Bladnochs or Rosebanks. For summertime indeed. SGP:631 – 85 points.
