  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    What a whisky. Perfectly balanced and complex. One of the best I've tasted. 
    • Nose
      Very delicate and complex. Sweet dark cherries, blueberry muffin, mushrooms in a forest, chocolate, coffee, and soaked wood. Some distant smoke. There is a hint of sherry, despite this whisky was matured in a sherry cask. This is the best example that whiskies that are matures in sherry casks shouldn't taste almost exactly as sherry. 
    • Taste
      Thick, syrupy, but with enough punch. Now we are more in the vinous part of whisky, the taste of sherry speaks louder. Raisin, dried fruit, prune, and rancio. We are in a sherry warehouse. Next, there is sevilla orange, moist soil, gravel, ground coffee and bitter chocolate. At the end, there is spiciness of clove. 
    • Finish
      Long, with a nice level of acidity and mild tannins. Smoke, Moist wood, Dutch appelstroop, dried fruit, chocolate and clove.
