Aroma: gentle, quiet weak one. Lemon, maritime notes, iodine and smoked ham, bonfire.
Palate: spicy wood, nuts and pepper. Smoked ham and salt. Finish: bit monotonic, with wood, black tea and salt notes.
Comments: you can feel typical LP here, but not that good as their official bottlings. Cask strength should be much more interesting.

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.
