  1. Nelltec did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Thanks for the sample. I know more beautiful blends from the 80s
    • Nose
      Beautiful light fruit notes of yellow fruits, light vanilla and honey
    • Taste
      The alcohol is not well integrated despite drinking strength of 43% Vol. Alcohol and oak wood go directly tough on the tongue.
    • Finish
      very dry, the wood notes stay in the mouth for a long time (unpleasant) - who likes it.
