Nose: 
Instead of the usual biscuit aroma, we now get moist cake. And my word: is it fruity and spicy!! Love the freshly waxed oak floor, too. Complex and multi-layered with one of the most intriguing sherry-style-bourbon-style marriages on the market

Taste: 
Cracking delivery and entirely unique in form. The structure is decidedly oak-based, but acts as no more than a skeleton from which the juicy sultana and spices drape. Salivating, too, as the barley kicks in powerfully. But the liquorice-orangey-honeycomb bourbon theme quietly shapes the flavour profile; the spices pulse and glow

Finish: 
Quite a chunk of natural caramel quietens the more exuberant characteristics; long and elegant

 

Note: Not For Resale
