Aroma: lemon drops, orange jam with clove. Wax, cinnamon notes. Bit of herb liqueur and eucalyptus. Water gives more smoked and lemon notes.
Palate: wax and resin start with bit of salt, then nuts and spices. Orange jam with pepper and clove. Chocolate notes with raisins. Water gives more salt, almond notes. Finish: salt, almonds, walnuts and wax.
Comment: very nice, robust malt. Similar to Batch #2, but moe salty and less sherried. Less wow, because I knew what to expect. Anyway, good one.

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.
