Aroma: maritime character, burnt wood and nutty notes. Wood polish and walnuts. With water comes more lemon and quince. Nice zesty saltiness..
Palate: dry wood with salt and smoke. With water more lemon, pepper and caramel. Finish: oily wood, pepper and salt with lemon.
Comment: water is necessary. Than CI character shines. Needs some time.


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.
