Aroma: orange syrup, pineapples, honey, nuts. Oak is very present, wood polish. Toast, roasted pine nuts, dry seaweed, beeswax.
Palate: dry, but pleasant. Full of mint, citrus fruits with peels, honey and spicy wood. Toast with orange peel jam, ginger and eucalyptus. Finish: spicy, bit dry with notes of green tea.
Comment: nice to see that elegant side is very present, and distillate character is fading - only traces of maritime, smoky character. Wood is not overwhelming and malt is elegant, pleasant and sweet.

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.
