  1. Alexandr_Zhurov scored this whisky 65 points Expert Junior

    Soft, dessert, wine, oak, but I would not buy such a bottle, there is something superfluous in it, some kind of imbalance.
    • Nose
      Very soft, white wine, creamy, creamy, fresh, sweet grapes, vanilla, wildflowers, flower pollen, wood, a lot of honey.
    • Taste
      Sweet, creamy, slightly tinged spices, honey, herbaceous, floral sweetness, full-bodied and oak.
    • Finish
      Pepper and bitter, woody, the first impression spoils, it seems to be softer and sweeter.
