Aroma: dried fruits, wood polish notes. Strong one, begs for water. Ripe fruits, cereals. With water honey and malt comes in.
Palate: sweet, spicy. Wood polish, eucalyptus and orange jam with spices. Bit too dry. Peanuts, liquorice. With water becomes very sweet and it overwhelms other notes a lot - just a bit of honey and spices remain. Finish: dry, bit dull, with spices and peanut notes.
Comment: water makes it very sweet. Aroma is nice, body is bit weak and needs bit more of maturatity.

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.
