    I just bought a placket for the exam and I did well. Part I drank with Króća and Nethar, I smiled now and I do not know what to do with the rest.
    • Nose
      Very light, slightly fruity, vanilla, with a touch of slivovitz, pecs. (71 b)
    • Taste
      Taste between the walnut blend and a touch of slivovitz, plus those pecs. (70 b)

    Gold Cock 3 yo (40%, OB, Czech Republic, 2003) A weird bottle that I had kind of won for some odd reasons at some kind of whisky festival organised by some kind of friends in western Belgium. It’s distilled by R. Jelinek, out of Moravian barley. Please don’t laugh, the Scots have been distilling ‘Danubian’ barley for centuries. Colour: straw. Nose: how would I describe this. Let’s say it’s very, very light, with a bit of vanilla and flattish notes of flat fruits. Not talking about their shapes here. Sugar syrup. It’s not bad because as there isn’t much happening, we couldn’t really complain. Mouth: not bad either, and there is something happening. Some sweet spices from the oak, a little ginger, some sugar, maybe ‘ideas’ of tinned pineapples, a few spicy herbs… We’ve seen worse. There’s always worse. Finish: short, on notes of apple liqueur (yep, like they make in Spain). Bitter sawdust in the aftertaste. Comments: almost drinkable. I’m not joking. They’ve added stuff, I think. SGP:430 - 45 points.
