  9. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A solid, medium heavy spirited, but fruity dram!
    • Nose
      Quite a firm nose with ample cereal and fruit notes. Cinnamon rolls, danish pastry, honeyed cereal, tangerine and apricot. Then influence of the wood, with coconut shavings, and polished chesterfields. In the end, grass and mint show.
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, fruity and cereal driven. Chocolate croissants, apricot jam, tangerine zest, with some mild bitterness from the wood. This is accompanied nu pepper and coconut. Then, these is mint tea in the sun.
    • Finish
      Slightly hot from pepper, but otherwise still quite rounded. The fruit, cereals are still there. The wood tot blogger, but that is not abnormal.
