Aroma: polished wood, orange liqueur, some sawdust, spiced herbs. Smoked ham with herbs and aniseed.
Palate: dance of wood and honey. Tangerines, mint, chalk, aniseed and spice - cinnamon, curry, thyme tea. Finish: dry and quiet short. Chalk, herbs, lime.
Comments: I like wood in my malt. Here's to much. And finish is weak, cause of low alcohol volume? By aroma, it feels like there's more alcohol and aroma is interesting, when taste is bit to agressive - overwhelmed by wood.

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.
