Aroma: really closed and very alcoholic, begs for water. Some malty notes with wood, pears and lemon with baked apples. With water style is more maritime - seaweed and wet stone. But still lots of baked, sour apples.
Palate: bit dry and spicy, with notes of eucalyptus, grass and lemon zest. Full of sour baked apples notes. With water I get the profile that is more malty and grassy. With some oak spice and coffee notes. Mineral and salty, with almonds, sea salt, motor oil and herbs. Becomes more and more maritime. I like it. Finish: salty, with lemon drops and herbs, trace of coffee. And really grassy in the end.
Comment: needs time to breath and really accepts water well for my taste. I like it's salty grassy side, but that sour apples notes doesn't help for better balance.

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.
