- I tried this sample at the tasting in Yalta, it was the last in the lineup, nepykoy, remembered as an ordinary caramel-bourbon whiskey with the obvious presence of a Japanese barrel.
- A good, simple whiskey, smoothed, soft, slightly slender, but in the aroma - like vodkas were splashed there, spoiling the whole impression.
Discreet, alcoholic, vodka, fresh boards, grain, in the background are furniture-varnish notes, boiled condensed milk.
Watery, saturated, there is pure sherry classics - spicy oak, varnish, prunes, raisins, metallic acidity, sweet creamy shades - toffee, boiled condensed milk; burnt rusks, floral-perfumery flavor, all in moderation, very nice, just watery.
Easy, the continuation of taste, quickly disappears.
Vice versa 75/25 mashbill between this and the Tradition version. Soft
notes of floral, a fat boy without much substance, oily, sugary sweet,
caramel, shy of any notable aroma.
P- Sweet corn, bourbon without the charred oak? Maize sweet, walnut, some light spices, feels heavy and oily.
F- Short, gentle, ordinary with thin candy sweet, easy drinking, flat with weak structure.
