    Look at Eyes: Deep golden smells Nose: wow, I love this smell. Rich and complex, deep and winding. A little fermented sour, spicy ingredients (rosemary / thyme / celery / crushed sage). Behind the mouth of the knife are tofu heart, cream cake, cherry jam, dried raspberry, red berries, oversized chunky grain bread, honey glutinous rice cake, condensed milk, fresh cream, and extremely reduced cheese sandwich. Desserts are mixed with pepper, gingerbread man, hay, and even a hint of milk and red bean cake tastes at the end. Palate: glucose syrup, sweetness, toast, toast, nut cake, food flavor, butter snack. Accompanied by spiciness, ginger, cinnamon, spices (sage, lavender, rosemary), gingerbread man, maple sugar toast, caramel bree Finish: long, sweet toast, cinnamon bun, raisins , Ginger, a little diesel, relatively dry, with dry longan to end.
    Body: Medium, rich, warm and full, sweeping the entire mouth

    Palate: 86/100

    The price is okay for a rye, but I wouldn't buy it a second time, there are better ones at a cheaper price.

    Tasting in Yalta, one drum, I didn’t even finish it, well, I don’t like rye whiskey. I will not say anything bad about the sample, everything is so good in it.
    • Nose
      Very rich, very soft, corn, popcorn, sweet, caramel, cocoa-cola, some laconicity is present, herbal balm.
    • Taste
      Powerful, alcohol tingling receptors, peppers, tasty enough, again the taste of some grain, liquor bitner.
    • Finish
      Herbal, liqueur, sweet.
