      I have a nice back and forth between sweetness and acidity, plus a fine smoke aroma. Flamed pineapple with a nice BURN, that's it for me. Some mango, fruity with malt and also something grassy at the beginning. In the beginning with stronger alcohol, it disappears over time and the whisky becomes more intense in the nose.

      If you take the first sip, you will encounter an unexpected force, a full, thick aroma. The smoke is much more intense, no Islay smoke but nice to see. It lies oily on the palate. The fruitiness remains in the taste and goes into great harmony with the smoke. Very warm and balanced. In addition to the sweetness that it definitely has, there will be fine spices and some white pepper and cereals later.

      Didn't think of water at any moment, he doesn't need it. Goes very well without despite 54.7%. Perfectly integrated.

      The combination is retained for a relatively long time and warms the throat. The palate is consumed by the smoke, and some sweetness remains.
