Blisk is said to have a pleasant aroma. It was bred in its native Zalec region of Slovenia, along with Bobek and Buket, in an attempt to create both high alpha and good aroma in one cultivar. Its alpha content is around 11%. Despite its good yield, Blisk is not being commercially produced at this time, likely due to its poor storageability and susceptibility to downy mildew.
