  1. Alexandr_Zhurov scored this whisky 75 points Expert Junior

    Seems older than 12 years old. In general, I liked the aroma the most, not as wine as 12FO, more mature and tastier, Glenlivet 18 recalled but not as rich. Cognac whisky, soft.
    • Nose
      Sweet oranges, apples, tangerines, jam, pollen, honey, sweet wood, cinnamon, vanilla, liquor sweetness like in cognac.
    • Taste
      Light sweetness, very creamy, dates, barrel bitterness.
    • Finish
      Simple, the sweetness quickly leaves, the smack of oak aging remains.
