    The nose is sour, hmm... The taste is the same... sad... 25 years? no way, sorry ... the working fluid is for a drink, yes, ok, after standing it gets a little better, but ... modern style - barrels washed with sherry ((( you must love it!

    after such whisky, I want to look for the anti wishlist button ((

    London Fog (Earl Grey Tea with steamed milk and vanilla), apple sauce, Peppermint Patties, smoked mild hot peppers. This is a classy "afternoon tea" kind of whisky.

    On the nose, there are light lacquer-perfumery notes, sweet and spicy with a hint of sherry.
    On the palate there are leathery tannins, slightly mushroomy in the cask, and dried fruit in various variations... a bit lacking in body, but the aftertaste helps. It has a very pleasant roundness, the same tannins and mushrooms. Overall, not bad. But still somehow everything is a little diluted, and the nose, and taste, and aroma. Yet in my opinion a pep crisis is on today's market face..!

    Second trial. Although everything is quite diluted - there is too much acid in the taste and finish in the mouth.
