FROM WHISKY FUN BY SERGE:Two casks have been used here. Colour: gold. Nose: more activity, more butterscotch, more roundness, more cakes, more praline, more custard, more preserved apricots, more Danishes… With water: leaves, oils, waxes, little herbs (basil, coriander)… Mouth (neat): I’m afraid they nailed it, and that’s the power of small batches vs. single casks. More complexity, more preserved fruits, syrups, honeys, quinces, bergamots, overripe apples, light fudge, brioche… My, this is good! With water: indeed. Rosehips and hawthorn teas. Finish: medium, rather more herbal. Green fruits (pears, kiwis, rhubarb…) A touch of coconut on the aftertaste. Oh and vanilla and honey. Comments: small batches, big whiskies. Provided those small batches are small indeed (I mean, not like 60,000 bottles, eh).
