    Smell: the smoky sensation, then dissipated, there are also some light mango and green apples, oranges, pork smell, fat, fur, green apples, green mangoes, very interesting smell, blue cheese.

    Taste: waxy and creamy, rich in grease! Rich small oranges, rose salt, chest tuberculosis, green apples, mango and pineapple oils, sweet original mint, non-chemical soapy water, smooth and oily taste, complex layers, excellent flavor, thick body, very good whisky .

    Aftertaste: It leaves the aftertaste of small orange water, woody tannins, and slight yogurt. Dip roasted green peppers in plum sauce.

    General Comment: As one of the representative works of Cat No. 1 Factory, this bottle of cat was sold to the Italian market in the early seventies for five years. The characteristic is reflected in the traces of smoke at the moment of entering the cup, with a fruity and creamy taste.
