    Not bad but somehow I have expected more
    • Nose
      89 89
      Intense, dry hay, paraffin, plastic, yes, varnish, hints of vanilla, honeydew, shoe polish - not bad
    • Taste
      88 88
      Punchy, lots of old newspaper, little sweetness, fresh sawdust, hints of toffee and sugar cane
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium short, zesty, cold cigar ashes, a tad bitter

    You like honey ? I don't like honey that much. But I enjoy the flavor in my whisky. Great nose for sure, simpler palate. Palate and finish are maybe a bit unidimensional but that's nitpicking. Excellent and quaffable whisky.

      Vibrant. Honey, old dusty books, leather, more honey, herbal and resinous notes, caramel. Whiffs of varnish, pencil shavings, smoke and tobacco. And honey.

      Waxy, coating. Honey, herbal liqueurs and spices from the oak.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long, honeyed, herbal and spicy.
