  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    This is certainly a RAW cask bottling. It's very powerful but also very pleasant. The spirit and wood have a good interaction, neither of both being dominant but they actually do complement each other.

    That's why I would say that any whisky lover would have to rate this dram quite positively, whether it's to the personal taste or not. I happen to like this fruity and thick distillate somewhat tamed by a cask that added earthy elements to the spirit.

      It's an interesting profile. Where you suspect ex-sherry casks, it's certainly not only the wood that does the talking. There is this leafy and nutty side of Oloroso: snickers bar, forest floor, dunnage, but also a fresh and ruity side on lemon and gooseberry. After a while it even gets creamier on vanilla and exotic fruits. Was it an ex-sherry cask after all? Anyhow, it's a terrific nose.

      Full, mouth-coating, dense. Man, what a power. Reduced: still full-bodied, sugary, and fruity but with an earthy twist. Pear, melon, peach confectionery, vanilla, but also some wood spice (ginger, nutmeg), dunnage and leaf.
    • Finish

      Long, pleasantly drying and warming on pepper and ginger. Still fruity on pear, citrus, melon, and with nice coating of chocolate, peanut, caramel, leaf.
