    Kingsbury's Celtic logo has always been responsible for the appearance and level of this series. Every time I see it in a bar in Japan, I can’t help but order a drink. "Wine Kings" often appear in this series, such as Pomeranian in 66 and Abbe in 1973. Kingsbury has also appeared many times on WHISKY+, a series that is very worth trying.

    The feeling of this Clynelish kitten from smelling to entrance is still relatively classic flavor-oriented. I personally like the sweet and heavy taste experience of waxy texture + honey. The oceanic atmosphere of the Northeast Highlands is still different from the oceanic feel of the west of Scotland, at least not so salty (and reminds me of the Bomo that seems to have been added with sea water...). The only fly in the ointment is the bitterness at the end...Although the bitterness will diminish a little after waking up for a while, um...bitterness is not on the flavor plate I appreciate whisky after all, this is a deduction item.

    Speaking of Celtic symbols, I have been playing Assassin’s Creed Hall of Valor recently. The British are really influenced by the Nordic culture. At first I thought this font was quite interesting, but later I saw the various totems and patterns of their Nordic people, let alone, it really became more pleasing to the eye~~

      Smell: coffee beans, lemon tart, lime, waxed leather, honey;

      Entry: the taste of very tropical fruits, nuts, hot alcohol, nuts, with a little saltiness, and the feeling of sea breeze;

      Ending rhyme: medium-length, with a sense of minerality, with a bitter bottom.
