Aroma: pleasant enough without water. Lemon, honey with wax. Bananas. With water more lemon and wood.
Palate: fresh, bit pungent. Ginger, aniseed. Lamon, wax, honey, ripe banana. Bit of malt and soap then. Polished wood also. Liquorice. Finish: powerful, spicy, with notes of lemon, wax and chalk.
Comment: good quality, very nice without water. Pungent. I salty waxiness this time a lot. Long finish.


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.
