    the malt has a high quality - strong, with no junk notes, lemon chocobob barrel character just does not quite meet my taste - that's not the malt
    • Nose
      gentle oak, floral light sherry, light metallic notes, subtle sweetness, freshly sawn oak, slightly tart vegetal notes, milk chocolate, deeper into the glass the chocolate becomes darker, after the first sip the oak takes over, dominantly fills the glass, mint and Lemon peel form the opposite pole with some honey, vanilla, baking cocoa
    • Taste
      soft round fresh delicate bourbon oak with quite a lot of vanilla and a beautiful vegetable acidity, lemon peel, citrus oil, light lemon note, mint and wax on the tongue, fresh - cooling a bit tingling, pleasant mouthfeel - not syrupy but quite intense - increasingly intense from mouth to mouth - just the citrus note and the wax note cumulate, the alcohol does not burn - here and there it still flashes through - but does not bother
    • Finish
      sweet lemon, acidity, vanilla - dry mouth, mint and wax remain on the tongue for a very long time

    • Nose
      Light sherry, light peppery, 
    • Taste
      warm alcohol, really sweet and smooth body.
    • Finish
      Sherry finish, the best part of the whisky is the finish.
