  1. huangshantong scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    As a very basic ration wine, this ease of drinking really needs to be improved, and it is somewhat unsatisfactory. The first is that the stimulation of alcohol is too dramtic, and the second is the astringency of the entrance and the bitterness of the end rhyme. Some regrets.

      Bright yellow fruit with tartness and pronounced sweetness, passion fruit and banana pineapple, cream and vanilla also perform well
    • Taste
      85 85
      The sweetness and flavor are online, the wine is a bit astringent, and the taste of the entrance is almost meaningless

  6. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Appearance: Bright amber-orange. Lovely.

    Nose: Sea air, apple, apricot, oak, vanilla, touch of sour fruit, vinegar, very unique.

    Palate: Oak, dried stone fruit, vanilla, brine.

    Finish: Vanilla, caramel, salt.

    With Water: Soft and salty, more sweet vanilla.

    Overall: A unique and lovely whisky. Rich dried stone fruity by the sea side and a touch of sourness.

    very disappointed!
    Acidic, modern sherry (((, then the taste is young and scalding, 18 years old? Yeah, right now .. it's more like 8 ...
    In general, Sadness and Melancholy is complete.

  9. TsiAI scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Eyes: golden smell. Nose: vanilla, salted prunes, Korean spicy cabbage, salt, a little black vinegar on wood, some grilled fish, Calbee oatmeal, tap water. The smell is mediocre, with some sourness that is characteristic of custom barrels, which is annoying.
    Taste Palate: Milky taste and saltiness are equally eye-catching, milk, limestone, grape jelly, a little fat powder, white peach bread, coconut meat, fresh milk taro balls, salt, tonic water, some smoke and cheesecake, the taste is not very A stretched, shrunken final rhyme Finish: white pills, sawdust, coconut milk, sliced baguette, and at the end appears a realistic and ripe apricot body. Body: light body, good fat, and some wrapping feeling

    Nose: 84.5/100
    Palate: 85/100
    Finish: 85/100
    Body: 84/100
    Overall: 85/100, although I can see the figure of the single barrel in 2004, but how do I feel about it, the leftovers that have been cold overnight
