Aroma: honey, flowers. Peaches, peppermint, herbs, ripe pears. Hay and cotton. Alcohol is high, needs water - then I get much more fruitiness.
Palate: nice harmony of honey, herbs and fruits. Notes of eucalyptus and mint. With water notes of wood, black tea and pharmacy herbs emerge. Finish: bit dry, bit biter with notes of wood and eucalyptus.
Comment: I was expecting more. Water didn't provide freshness. There are too much dry wood notes. Interesting and poweful malt, but too much wood - if in that place there were fruits, it would be much better.

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.
