Aroma: ripe pears with delicate cinnamon and ginger notes. Figs, oranges in honey sauce. Sweet milky toffee, milk chocolate even more. Some buttre and hay.
Palate: sweety, I can fell wood and spice, butter and bitter chocolate. Liquorice and caramel. Ripe pears with cinnamon. Finish: sweet, bit dry and spicy. Bit weak.
Comments: interesting, gentle mal. Lacks some punch and expressiveness. Gentle, daily dram. Should go well with milk chocolate. Nice aroma and really nice quality for the price.

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.
