  1. vojt466 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very good and complex drinking.
    • Nose
      Right from the beginning, smoke slightly. Substantial doughiness and caramel candy, dried fruit and fruit salad combined with honey and a distinctive mint.
    • Taste
      Significant oak tones, chocolate, latte. Initially very pronounced spiciness, which gradually passes into a combination of fruit marmalade, oranges and cream dessert. It is lightly dried for a while and the acidity of lemons and vanilla / chocolate is added
    • Finish
      Again, dubiousness, light sweetness, a good dose of mint and jam. Creamy and finally malt.
