    Color
    Dark amber.
    Nose
    Open, bright, with tones of raisins, prunes and dried fruits. A little peat, smoke in the background. Spice. Vanilla. A little floral aroma with notes of citrus. Disclosed by the waves, the development of aromas is very interesting.
    Taste
    Bright and open - Fruits: mango, orange, plum. Chocolate. Nougat. A bit of peat with oak. Oak is normal, does not stick out. Nuts and cardamom. A little cherry jam. Sweet enough taste. Developing and multifaceted.
    Aftertaste
    Very long and warm. Lots of dried fruits and a bit of salt. There is smoke, but not much, in the background. Notes of blackcurrant and cherry. Gradually, sweetness decreases, warm tannins come. On the aftertaste, you can hang for a long time. Charming whisky.
