  1. diamond2000 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: thick, liqueur, apple peel, dried apples and pears, walnuts in caramel, salt, hints of spicy pickle, minerals, coal dust, braised fire. Having drunk, aroma of sweet fruit lollipops, exotic juice, even more brine and salty sea aromas, wood, varnish appear.

    Taste: sweet and mineral, slightly caustic spices, burnt caramel, roasted walnuts, minerals, ash, dried fruits - apples, pears, dates; slightly smoked, pleasant tannins barrels.

    Finish: dry, mineral and salty, echoes of spices, not sweet compote of dried fruit, a lot of ash, activated carbon, light citrus hints. Longer than average, oily.

    Rating: 87

    The bottom line: undoubtedly the luck of the bottler, Ledzhik and a barrel very well fit each other. The smoke as such at all stages is minimal, there is a feeling of smoked and ash, and I somehow did not catch the branded rubber. Enchantingly cool, developing flavor and a little bit inferior to him. Regarding the finish, here, as in the two Ledzhiki I recently tested, it is longer than average and very saturated, it looks like they have a very strong common feature.
