Aroma: fresh polished wood, roasted malt and toast, bit of lemon and nuts. Needs water badly. With water I've got more maritime notes and fruit. Bit of honey also.
Palate: ginger, citrus fruits. Honey, butter and pepper. Queit sweet. Grapefruits. With water comes more honey, lemon and pepper. Finish: spicy, with lemon notes.
Comments: more pleasant with water. Fruity and marimite. I would love to get more complexity, as it is not the young malt.

The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
