Nose: vanilla, tropical and citrus fruits.
Palate: sweet and creamy, bananas.
Finish: quite long, mouth-couting, somehow reminds of Irish pot-still whiskeys, a little bitter at the end.
Comments: delicious! Even though the rating does not reflect this, I would consider buying the whole bottle. And I do not consider that very often.


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.
