    Those who estimated a complex taste, when they read the story of „project XX“ will be disappointed. Mixing 20 favourite casks of 20 connaisseurs led to a quite simple dram.
    • Nose
      78 78
      Closed impression. Homogenious aroma that is something between milk, nougat and some flowers. Behind that probably pears.
    • Taste
      76 76
      The taste shows more nougat. But there is still the milky-cheesy impression. By adding some water it improves a little and shows some flowers. But overall no surprises - it remains non-complex.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Medium to short lingering taste that tends more to light chocolate/nougat.

    Room temperature when drinking: 25 ℃

    Viewing Eyes: golden smell Nose: fermented cheese, expired old yoghurt, while the milk smell is obvious. Then appeared fresh cream + heavy cheese cake, milk ice cream, half-cooked cheese. Alcohol is a little disturbing, and the smell is relatively simple. Palate: the slight acidity of lemon juice, it seems to be the fresh cream brought by American oak barrels, fresh milk taro balls, wood stubble and bitter bottom, as if nibbling a whipped cream stick Finish: long, obvious tannin, sweet milk diluted one to ten, wood body: light, medium fat, bitter bottom, slightly tannin

    Nose: 83.7 / 100
    Palate: 80/100
    Finish: 80/100
    Body: 83/100
    Overall: 82/100

    an exceptionally successful, tasty and balanced release ... despite the fact that the release is age-free ... it was with great pleasure that I drank a bottle and bought another one at the bar ...
    • Nose
      88 88
      From the very beginning, the aroma of roasted chestnuts, the aroma of sweet muffin, chocolate notes, hazelnuts, "oily" dried fruit theme - selected prunes, dried apricots, black raisins ... vanilla and malt tones are present ... the theme of sweet apples is included. .. Porto’s motives are quite clearly felt ...
    • Taste
      85 85
      In many ways, the flavor is largely repeated by the aroma - prunes, chocolate tones, Porto flavors, small oak tannins ... then malt notes ... honey, shades of sweet apples begin to prevail
    • Finish
      85 85
      More than average ... soft and velvety ... chocolate-nut-vanilla ... a little malt and pastry muffin ... slightly burnt bread crusts ...

    Somehow, the nose has already relatively artificial, sweet notes and also does not seem too old. In the mouth then very sweet. But not quite so artificial. Then there is the oak with.
    Overall, but a whisky that I do not need again in the glass.
