  2. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Simple enough, but saturated with a mellow, astringent, woody-mineral, without pronounced sulfuric and insecticidal derivatives, not very interesting whisky, with time improves slightly, becomes softer and sweeter.
    • Nose
      Open, raw, fresh wood, vanilla, carpentry workshop, thinner, sweet caramel notes, boiled condensed milk, mineral tones - drying plaster, grindstone; light vegetable notes - radish, cabbage; lemon peel.
    • Taste
      Powerful, dense, woody-grassy with mineral notes, slightly astringent, lemon peel in unsweetened tea, creamy-pastry shades - toffee, condensed milk; exploding caramel.
    • Finish
      Spicy, slightly bitter, tart oak, a little grapefruit crust, moderate sweetness, lemon peel.
