  1. Ostap scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Considering the status of this release, I was a little worried. In principle, it turned out very well. Whisky is for thoughtful, slow, meditative consumption. The scent takes time and then it is beautiful, thin, with a bunch of tones.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Immediately quite spirited, sponge cake, salty, sea minerals, iodine, sulfur, restrained, silky flavor at the beginning. Next are sour-sweet berries, mint, dried tomatoes, varnish-colored notes, cucumber salad, oak, spices notes, cookies, metal, canned tomatoes, plum, apple jam. Even further, the aroma continues to unfold and recruit (in intensity and marks), it becomes noticeably heresy, heather, peat, tobacco leaf, dried apricots, inks, and nuts in sugar.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet, peppery, some kind of pill formulation (it's hard to explain, but this association arises immediately, it was this taste that had pills / vitamins that stroked in childhood), herbs and roses tincture, pectinus, a little bit of meat, and oak.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Heats up, even fires on the receptors, again herbal tincture, pectusine, long, quite ascetic and a little bit constricted.

    Tasty, cute, a little out of balance, but it's quite good to drink, albeit youthful in taste ...
