    T
    Little sweet floral
    Nice spicy balance
    F
    Short finish. Not to bitter so it was good

    Mild for its abv bit milky not to hevay sherry nor floral. Overall esay enjoyable sip. Not to much of complexity.

    Bit of time is needed

    87 regardless of its price

  2. penumbra scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    As long as 1100, 20-year OB barrels hugged home, the same is Xinxing Island wine, I do n’t know where it is better than Klichoman 10 CS.
    • Nose
      Milky.
    • Taste
      Then plum, ebony, pit, sweet and sour.
    • Finish
      Long, milk, oil, plastic.

  3. ConvalRen scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Somehow the 18 is still very much better than this 20.
    • Nose
      Pepper, all spice, grapefruit.
    • Taste
      More pepper, spices like cloves, cinnamon, cardamon and star anise. Grapefruit, jackfruit and pomegranate. Earthy soil and rock dust.
    • Finish
      Short ending, light. Good for having after dessert. Lacking in complexity, doesn't evolve. Slight pepper and red fruit at the end and just dissipates eagerly.
