    Very delicate Clay, it is necessary to be able to catch such a beautiful barrel. Mr. Martin knows how!

    Pleasant whisky, coolly packed flavor, perfectly suited.

      A bunch of vanilla and sweet pastries, fruits and raisins, typical sherry nuances (dried mushrooms, marinade, stain ...), compote, juicy aroma, milk chocolate, milk iris, salty caramel, fragrant field herbs, leather furniture, sweetish tobacco sour, even good cognac showed, dried apricots, wax, citrus, light minerality.

  5. Kuba9712 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Nose: citruses, waxes, lemon tart, toffee, slightly floral in the background, a bit sour
    Taste: it strikes with delicacy, at the very beginning it seems almost watery and then it strikes, fruit - caramel apples, wood
    finish: not very long, dry, coffee,

    In store sample blind.

    Very nice classy and elegant malt. Not obviously clynelish to me, missing the big waxy notes, but regardless it’s very good and even has some old classy notes such as old antique chair, milk chocolate, hazelnut, a little polish even. Very nice indeed.
