    Nose: Chocolate orange cake, honey lemonade, maltose, moss, green smoke, moist wood, with white daisy painting dotted with yellow powder. In the crowded venue, I spent a lot of time to enjoy the smell, as if I was in the forest after the rain, hungry and thirsty to purify my sense of smell and breath.

    Palate: Pan-fried butter, ginger flakes, condensed milk, jelly, fruit jelly, xylitol, oatmeal porridge with sweet corn flakes, hazelnuts, and millet rice, a little smelly seawater, the strength is slightly weaker.

    Balance, Body: Light oils that are more greasy and less deflated, a moderately lighter body, a medium complexity, no alcohol strength, and an excellent drinkability and balance.

    Finish: Medium and long, clear and fragrant, back to the fragrant route of light-colored flowers, lemonade, fresh wood, cereal, marmalade are responsible for the solid part.

    Top, a must We lose in aroma by adding water while we graze peaty aromas of a caol ila
    • Nose
      A very pleasant nose, very sweet in alcohol one feels dry fruits, a small floral perfume. Moss and smoke come out pretty quickly. In the background we feel a slight smell of malt with honey. I can spend hours just feeling it.
    • Taste
      Very creamy and light in alcohol to taste, it is taken in very nice butter taste accompanied by smoked, and boiled cereals. In a rather light way I think to feel dried fruits or almond and a small side of leather. In a second time the time disappears in favor of a very nice grilled wood
    • Finish
      The nose and the taste are very pleasant and not at all aggressive, although very rich in the palate it remains perfectly balanced. The length in the mouth is shorter than I could expect but is still very nice. The retro-olfaction remains a little on its hunger with just a slight malty smell.
