      Peat, Printen in chocolate and apple.

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A quite astringent, moderately peated Laphroaig. Nothing wrong with that, yet not so intriguing as some OB CS bottlings.
    • Nose
      After pouring, it's not overly expressive, certainly not if you consider it's a Laprhoaig. It's hot too, so it's better to wait a few minutes. Yes, that's more like it. Too bad that the chaps of Daily Dram didn't give much info. Smells like a (partly) sherry matured whisky. It's a bit nutty (on almonds), with some effect of oxidising grapes. The peat is surprisingly mellow and vegetal: twigs heather, and not so much the salty ingredients. Then there is lemon and a decent portion of grass.
    • Taste
      More pronounced peat now, but still not at the "in your face" level. Besides that, it's quite dry and mineral, with lime stone, ginger, gentian root, and lime zest. Then there is walnut (the nut and the skin) and grass. 
    • Finish
      Still dry, and earthy with gentian, ginger, ash, peat, lime zest, bitter chocolate and walnut.
