Aroma: strong vanilla notes, lemon zest, green apples, pineapple, mint. Very very fresh.
Palate: lemon and vanilla dominating. Dash of honey. Bit of peppermint, unripe banana, cacao. Finish: medium long, citrus fruits and cacao.
Comment: fresh and lively for its age. No any trace of wood. Citrus fruits are talking. Interesting what it would become in 10 more years, as many younger malts are feeling older.

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.
