    That's how barrels did that, but I do not complain. Of course, as a patriot, I'm throwing an extra point
    • Nose
      Uaa, so this is a very difficult matter - Exotic wood, old furniture, old skin, chocolate, nougat such a total mournfulness, but in a good sense
    • Taste
      The taste is oily, chocolate, vanilla and gently spiced with traces of tea and light salty
    • Finish
      In reverberation, it is mainly about woodiness, and again the oakiness of this oak

  4. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Phew that's not mine. The works not at all round and balanced. The nose is still pleasantly exciting but the taste and finish are characterized by a superficial "scratchy" taste. By age I would type in under 10 years. Fassart: no ex-bourbon or sherry. Alcohol 46-50%

    What the 20 years in the barrel has done, is a mystery to me.
    • Nose
      Blind tasting:
      The color speaks for ex-Bourbon or a light finish
      Nose:
      Nuts, grape seeds, wine, sugar, gooseberries, honey, rather fresh and light-fruited, grapes, that smells of a white wine finish, light vanilla on top, it does not smell of old age, the alcohol is gradually more noticeable. In the second sip more sweet and vanilla
    • Taste
      Very racy, scratchy, oak, a lot of spice, but somehow unbalanced, looks young, a bit sprightly, again grape seeds and vanilla
    • Finish
      First unpleasant, oak, spice, later a little more pleasing with chocolate
