  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Tasted in parallel with 11421. Less aggressive on the nose, but still lacks a bit of the waxy side that I like. More classic too.
    • Nose
      Fresh apple, pear skin, sugar cane, green wood.
    • Taste
      On the palate it's round, on the flower with sugar.
    • Finish
      Finale on yellow fruit, sugar, wood.
