7 ery harmonious. The dense, fruitiness of the spirit gives it weight and it's not one dimensional.

Ardbeg Kildalton
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 If only the palate had the intensity of the nose and the finish, which is when it sprang to life!

Old Pulteney 1990 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A complex malt with the American and European oak spirit working in harmony.

Triticale Whiskey A Rye Wheat Hybrid
Rye - U.S.A. - 44.00%
7 A lovely, complex nose but the oak gipped the palate a little too much.
