    big fat oily Pultney that needs a lot of water to open up - 20 drops in a 5cl sample -

    Tint: Orange amber Aroma: Happy to be balanced but thick sweetness & sour, honey, sweetened lime juice, Valencia orange, Milin. As time goes on, fresh and rich fragrance like Nutty & Vanillic & Mizuno peaches comes out. However, the alcohol feeling is quite strong. It looks delicious normally, the recent fragrance of plutony cask. Taste: If you think that you have felt citrus & syrup drop type of esthetics, vanilla, sweetness of good wheat series, Nutty & Oily, honey, fresh ripe plum and even barrel of barrels, From there a long lingering finish. Oh, fruit is good. A fresh, odorous feeling can not be with an esthetic who is not like it. http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=19924

    Aroma: varnish, old tans, sugar-free yogurt. . . Fresh scent feels the solvent-like and acidity of the New Pot system. Over time honey, vanilla, prunes, sweet scents. Although the early stage is not a well-balanced fragrance, it is multilayered with the flavor coming out from the back, the alcohol kick is strong, but it is a fulfilling scent that I like to like. Taste: Oily, but powerful, there is a sense of fruit like red wine or sherry for a moment, but vanilla, oil paint, wheat feel spread steadily soon. Is it a minor astringent derived from a barrel material? The lingering finish is oily, raisins, tidal air, faint spices remain long. Strong nose escape, the merits of sherry barrels combine to the goodness of alcohol quality and it is really rich in concentration. Characteristic of young sake as well, living well, it is finished in a satisfying worthy cup. Summary: Squid plutonies. A drinker may taste like a taste better. I also hear the story of young expectant, plutoni 's shortage of sake is serious, but I definitely want you to keep releasing this kind of thing. http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=19924

    The first impression is fun, but in the finish and at the end unfortunately very bitter notes dominate. The barrel quality was not 1st class !!
