Aroma: fruits, honey and nuts. With time I get more walnuts, mushrooms, vanilla. And needs water.Then wood polish, chalky notes. And more vanilla.
Palate: vanilla, oranges, pears and honey. I feel distillery style - light, delicate, clean malt. With water I am waiting more fruitiness, but I get more vanilla, lemon, pepper notes. It seems we have no first fill sherry cask, as more distillate than sherried character we have here. Finish: pepper with hints of grass and lemon.
Comment: clean, simple, delicate. Good reflection of distillery.

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.
