Povilas

Aroma: apples, pears, some honey, vanilla, aniseed, polished wood. With water I get more vanilla and wood.
Palate: dry wood with ripe apples, almonds and honey. Wood polish, orange jam, pepper. With water - more wood, vanilla and burnt sugar. Finish: dry, with wood, nuts and peppers.
Comments: clean one. I was expecting more vanilla from virgin oak. But wood is really active here, adding much to this malt.

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.
