  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    It's quite light as SMWS indicates. The cask was not so active anymore, and this makes the whisky taste considerably younger than it's actual age. Having said this, the spirit that shines through in this dram was rather clean and mildly fruity. Yet, it's not much more than that, and doesn't justify it's price.
    • Nose
      After pouring: quite sickly and a bit salty, seemingly spirit-driven. After a while: Pear, apple, fresh dough, and quite herbal (grass, parsley).The salty edges remains, with tinned green olives
    • Taste
      Hot, not too sweet but certainly not bitter. It's not overly expressive. Lemon, chives, again this fresh dough and white pepper.
    • Finish
      Relatively short, rather on hay, lemon and pepper.

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Flavour Profile: Light & Delicate

    The panel fancied a scene straight from Tess of the D’urbervilles,
    with characters dressed in linen fob caps drinking elderflower water and cider.
    Delicate pollen mingled with light blossom honey and white pepper. A savoury
    spread of salted limes, olives in brine, white wine vinegar, before sweeter white
    chocolate ganache with fresh lime peel and gooseberry. The texture was
    mouthwatering and salving with lemon meringue and a short finish. Water revealed
    breezy warm stubble and wicker basket with some dusty cereal. More zesty
    sherbet, pineapple and dried apple rings with a sprightly finish of pepper.
    Fragile and gorgeous
