  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A good and balanced dram without a doubt. It's the fruity and creamy side of OP. Too bad that it had a slight metallic OBE taste, due to which it lost some points.

      Some metallic OBE, but apart from that it's quite fresh actually. There is white and yellow fruit (most prominantly pineapple and poached pear), cereal (malt) and honey. Behind that there are layers of freshly cut grass, a bit of mint, and vanilla.

      A real fruit basket, with lush and ripe fruit. Both sweet and sour: grape, pineapple, pear, peach en candied lemon. Then there is vanilla ice cream, a hint of aniseed, and soft spice (almost cinnamon).

      Medium long, and nicely balanced: a bit of sweet, a bit of sour, and a bit of bitter (spice). Most prominent are vanilla ice cream, a grassy cereal note, pineapple and pepper. The only issue that I found is that it still has a slight metallic OBE taste.
