  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Maybe still shy on the nose, but it certainly delivers in the taste and finish. A rock solid Inchgower.
    • Nose
      Very complex. The spirit is still detectable, with a nutty, beefy style (macadamia). There is something green (parsley), mineral and creamy (vanilla). This eventually leads to an enormous explosion of fruit. Unripe banana and pineaple, (ripe) lychee, mango. Nice!
    • Taste
      Powerful but pleasant on the attack towards the end. Medium sweet, not too sour nor bitter. Still on a green-fruity side, with chives and parley combined with clotted cream, honey and loads of tropical fruits. It certainly delivers.
    • Finish
      Slightly woody towards the finish (vanilla, sawdust), but that's pleasant because it's not dominating. Combine this with the creamy fruity explosion and there is a grande finale!
