    Some kind of strange aroma, like a chimney, but there is something indistinctly incomprehensible in the aroma. But in general, it's simple. Tiny in the aroma, young, so far, most of all pleases the design of the tube / bottle) Although the aftertaste is pleasant, palpable.

  4. thijs100 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Delivers on strength but a little less on complexity.
    • Nose
      Surprisingly approachable with notes of vanilla and marzipan accompanied by vegetal peat, green olives, brine and almond paste. Soft whispers of raw oak and lemon peel too.
    • Taste
      Certainly more aggressive because of its higher ABV, but not by much considering. A sweet arrival highlighted by vanilla, quickly followed by lemon pith, but also rubber, vegetal peat and shoe polish. Touches of black pepper too.
    • Finish
      Lingering smoke. Fairly long.

  5. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      At the top - prominent green grass, middle - sweet meaty, salty, smoky peat
    • Taste
      Cream, alcohol bite, black pepper, salt, meaty sweetness, and sunflower seeds
    • Finish
      Long, dry, ashy resin
