  1. DenisLeonov scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Balance (22.5)
    Wonderful molt. (90)
    • Nose
      The aroma is lollipops, pineapples, vanilla and ice cream on the floor of the cowshed ... a faint aroma of warm marmalade with a dead mouse. Wax and butter with salt. Dry wood with banana peel (23)
    • Taste
      Watery fruits, vanilla, smoke, wax and minerality (22,5)
    • Finish
      Fruit, smoky finish. Fruits with cream, dark chocolate, spicy, spicy ... a little dust from the fireplace (22)

    23/22/22.5/22.5 90!
    • Nose
      (N 23) rounded but at the same time sonorous, crunchy, I would not think that it is a barrel. The aroma is reminiscent of the Arran brothers, the bourbon barrel worked well giving off the aroma of maple syrup, Floral, slightly soapy aroma, flows into green apples, canned pineapple. It makes you feel that the holiday is coming soon and you bought canned pineapples, and when you get in the fridge mom will give you a shout: do not touch it for the guests! Light polish, lemons in a cellophane bag. And you leave the store and chew a mattress from Roshen, somewhere in the neighboring village brought smoke from the gardens.
    • Taste
      (T 22) grilled pineapple (did not eat? Very tasty thing) smoky, plastic, candy, iodine light, nut peel, almond macaroni with vanilla meringue
    • Finish
      (F 22.5) a subtle moment that should not be missed when milk chocolate with a dose of perfume flows into nut praline, dry finish, slightly smoky, oak vanilla.

  4. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 86 points Newbie

    Tried only 25ml.
    Aroma - rich, elegant flowers and then light fruits (melon or peach?)
    Palate - right upfront candy sweet but immediately switch to light smoke and dry finish.
    For me - just really nice whisky overall.

    not easy to evaluate with 25ml, but I liked it) 22.5-22.5-22.5-22.5
