  1. LukasJakubDrabek scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The smell is beautifully noticeable smoke, but gradually disappears and it is replaced by dried meat and freeze-dried fruit (I know a strange combination). With a few drops of water appears tanned marshmallow.
    In taste I found a clear influence of the barrel after the port, sweetness, wild strawberries (or other red fruit) with pieces of charcoal and chilli. With a few drops of water, plums and some mint will appear.
    Finishing goes to chocolate and ash, lightly but pleasantly sour.
    Beautifully drinkable even in barrel strength. Totally different type of smoky whisky. (Based on sample.)
