    Is a nice whisky but it needs some water, it is a bit closed.

      Malty roasted biscuits and caramel | oats with grated orange peel, but also a bit spicier due to the alcohol. Tannins. Hardly any change in smell with water

      Malty, mouth-filling and salivary. Cherry. Sweet and dry at the same time. Interesting mouth game. Thyme or similar. Ethereal. With water it becomes sweeter and oily, as well as some strawberry jam

      Getting a little dry. Wood gets through more .. Herber after very dark chocolate and coffee. Benefit from the water.
