  1. Ostap scored this whisky 77 points Expert Junior

    A good distillation, but ... to whisky is still very far away! Just so primitive. Drinks are good, but whisky is not very perceptible. Another work in progress.
    • Nose
      76 76
      Immediately very young, sour, fresh distillation, rye croutons, white grapes, dirty standing blooming water, peppermint, some salted cucumbers, mineral, dusty. A little while standing, giving out a bunch of fruits. Cute, but it's still not whisky (maybe that was the kind of whisky in the beginning?).
    • Taste
      77 77
      Fruit, meat, bread, oatmeal cookies, sulfur, strong and fatty, muscular.
    • Finish
      77 77
      Durable, warming, spiny, thick, bread, raisins, meat, apples.

    Balance sheet (18) Sadly (73)
    • Nose
      Sweet kefir! Alcohol and anise ... despite the apparent not maturity, the mole does not cause disgust ... toffee ... milky notes ... grass ... raw vegetables (19)
    • Taste
      The taste of sweet-herbal ... marinating (17)
    • Finish
      Finish burning, sugar and fruit ... oxidized metal (19)

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Suddenly, a rubbery young speaker, in general, rather, a curious combination of sweet confectionery motifs with luscious rubber in the style of Ladyga, boring certainly was not, good work with the fortress and the product is quite one-piece.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, wet rubber, coated tablets, rusty iron, mineral notes - raw stones, drying plaster, chalk; vegetable tones - boiled potatoes and carrots; lemon peel.
    • Taste
      Powerful, oak-grassy with notes of rubber, sweet, astringent and astringent oak, underserved persimmon, confectionery tones.
    • Finish
      Dry, warming, sweet rubber, light tart oak notes, medicinal herbs - yarrow, motherwort; lemon in sugar, plastic shades.
