  1. penumbra scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    It is a pity to smell such a good-bodied wine. It seems that it is safer to drink high-grade old wine.
    • Nose
      Pleasant, greasy, dairy, and fruity. There are salted butter, wax, cheese slices, honey, wife cake, fresh apricots, brine pineapples, lychees, green apples, yellow fruits. A few seaside reefs, mountain springs, very light peat, bacon, olive, brass.
      Less peat, more moving.
    • Taste
      A pinch of salt, enhanced peatiness, ash, minerals, tasteless nuts (lotus seeds, ginkgo), less fruity (orange, lemon, watermelon, melon), vanilla, oak, maltose.
      I feel that the preservation state is not very good, slightly watery.
      Normal, normal oil, slightly sweet, no acid, no astringency, no bitterness, no pungency, no alcohol, no irritation.
    • Finish
      Medium, wheat aroma, charcoal fire.

      Long and sweet
