    Simple, but not the usual whisky: a pleasant friend. Sparkling selz will tickle your tongue, while fruity notes take care of your spirit. High proof helps various scents to persist without side effects: the high ABV will not bother you and will not smooth over scents’ spectrum. We could describe this whisky as a gifted but lazy student, so that speaking to the latter’s mother we would say: “well, your son is very talented, but he lacks in effort”.
    • Nose
      An important phenolic character slowly leaves the stage in favor of sherry. Intense fruity scents like ripe yellow apple and baked apple follow each other in a never-ending run. Notes of lemon will persist in your nostril.
    • Taste
       Salty scent rules the roost; later, it turns in being a little bit sparkling, like selz. Sherry, after a fast start, gradually loses strength in place of walnut.
    • Finish
       Salty scent returns again, along with iodine and selz. Sherry continues to completely vanish as scents of yellow fruit and pistachio begin to arise.
