Nosing:
Fruity, apples, pears.
Taste: sweat but spicy, apples pears, flat taste

Finish: very short, a little oaky

Comment:
This whisky is delicate and flat. Not to much taste, alcohol not well hidden. Two good things I can find there is oak aftertaste which I love and oiliness, but this oilness don't bring too much taste with it. Can be for begginers but I would say for very begginers.
