Бууум, именно попробовав этот виски я решил завести это приложение. Невероятный мягкий вкус, с фруктами и медом, приятен и на вкус и на запах никак не отдает спиртом, немного прогревает в послевкусии

PL
Whisky zawiera złoto aluwialne, dlatego nazywane jest ,,złotym trunkiem".
Klasyczny szkocki Single Malt z regionu Highland. Miodowy i owocowy. Nuty pomarańczy i dębu, miodu, ciągnącej się krówki, ananasa i delikatny dym w tle. Fenomenalna, lekka i deserowa whisky.

ENG

General description

Nose

Let it sit for some 15 - 20 minutes (with a lid over the glass) and you get a lovely aroma of vanilla, citrus, ripe oranges and orange zest, honey and brown sugar, with a whiff of chocolate at the end.

Taste

soft arrival, a bit (too) thin and watery even. Nevertheless you get chocolate-y notes, honey, a bit of (soft) wood and vanilla. It all remains a bit constrained.

Finish

The finish starts of a bit sharp, with alcohol and is short to medium, with some oiliness that lingers about

Comments

An inviting, promising nose if you give it enough time to breath, but the further development never really happens. This could be so much more and so much better if it was bottled at 46% (or even at 43%). Nevertheless, a good easy sipper, the kind of whisky to warm up the palate  before you dive into more complex stuff.
