Aroma: fresh lemon with notes of pine resin and trace of smoke. Sea salt, wax, bit of wall paint. Pleasant without water. With water it gets even more interesting - sea and smoke notes are opening more and more. Freshness is here too.
Palate: lemon with peppermint, honey and ginger. Ripe fruits and beeswax. Grapefruit, green tea. With water notes of wax, grapefruit are even more bright. Finish: fresh, peppery, bit bitter.
Comment: waxy, bitter, but fresh. Just fine for me. Perfect choice for wax and power lovers. Goes well undiluted.

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.
