Having a bad nose week , and a bad week all together after catching the flu. Good i have some tasting notes waiting i Queue, as it seems no tasting is happening this week at whisky Israel towers.

A very good example of young PC, that delivers all you can hope for, and will please peat freaks, and PC lovers. Natural and good.

Score: 88/100
