Aroma: interesting tango of smoke and flowers. Good balance - lilacs, lavenders, smoke, smoked ham. Some sweet ripe fruits, tropical ones also.
Palate: very sweet at the beginning - tropical fruits, pepper and lemon zest. Fresh and alive.
Comments: Good balance of violets, smoke and fruit. Very interesting and I believe it falls into category "love it or hate it". I love it - multidimensional and remarkable.


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.
