Aroma: hay and vanilla, some cereals, wax, pepper.
Palate: oak and vanilla, some oranges and tangerines, spices and bitterness. Lots of wood. Needs some time.
Comment: interesting aroma, but taste was not to my liking. Needs lots of time, or maybe just not my taste. This is high quality malt, but suffered from comparison from sherried Karuizawas tasted at the side.


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.
