    • Nose
      Sweet and VERY fruity. Cherries at the forefront, but also honey, stewed apples, and pear skin. There's peach too, as well as apricot, and a hint of fudge.
    • Taste
      Follows along the same lines as the nose does, with a bit of an added spiciness. So we've got the fruitiness and the sweetness, but now with some nutmeg too, as well as a hint of white pepper.
    • Finish
      Bitter, and on the shorter side.

    For me an excellent bourbon cask matured version. Only thing which leaves something to be desired is the finish. It's short and with little to give, a pitty, but the nose and taste are excellent.

    Beautiful whisky, soft and yet firm. Smell just a little better than body and finish.
    • Nose
      Very fruity, peach, some citrus, vanilla, honey. Very fresh and full of rich scent. Slightly also some glue.
    • Taste
      Very soft and yet very full taste. Tropical fruits, honey and vanilla. Peach. Also a bit of fun, and gradually also some coffee. Slightly stimulating now
    • Finish
      Slightly tingling now, bit bitter, grapefruit. Toffifee. Fairly long. Wood tones. Peach and tropical fruit gradually again.
