    Elegant and rich, surprisingly old-fashioned.

      Pine needles, intense and floral, perfumy, rich, very hot.

  7. InbhirNis scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet-but-sharp, slightly bitter, dusty, citric, fizzy.

      With water, the sharpness mellows, becoming earthy with wet leaves
    • Taste
      Creamy, mainly sweet but with a nice sour note to balance.

      With water: swims very well, notable scotch mist, sour apples and bananas, chalky and bright
    • Finish
      Medium, sharp at first but mellows to sweet, vanilla, chocolate emerges late on

  9. Vladimir Ziryanov scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    First of all, a catchy drink, yes, there aren’t any very light shades, but it’s powerful, assertive, varied and pleasant
    • Nose
      91 91
      initially some dark notes (even remotely even sherry extract seems strange), strong tea leaves, later turning into menthol-pepper tones, the degree is felt, presses, but does not bother, some dark fruits like cherries and cherries, and again black tea with green leaves tobacco
    • Taste
      90 90
      the same profile, but additionally light fruit skips
    • Finish
      90 90
      bright, long-lasting, spicy, juicy, alcohol pleasantly irritates the receptors, causing them to swallow saliva and arouse appetite :)
