  4. St. Pauli scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Must have been a refill cask. The colour is very light, and the spirit is quite powerful. It's rather pungent or even harsh, making it difficult for everybody to love. For me it's a bit too much. As I am somewhat sensitive to fudge and toffee, this is not the most pleasant dram I've come across lately.
    • Nose
      Quite restrained directly after pouring, with just caramel and grass notes. Can't say it's too pleasant yet. Gets fresher after a while. the grass stays, is accompanied by mint. Furthermore, pears and apples join the party. There is marzipan and a dirty cheesy off note. With water, it's another tad fresher, with more fruit like peach. 
    • Taste
      Powerful, sweet and pungent, with fudge, nuts, honey, barley, sugar and ginger. Gets rather dry towards the finish. Water doesn't help; it just takes off the edges of this sturdy bloke.
    • Finish
      A decrescendo of pepper and ginger, toffee, honey and grass.
