    A delicious and fine malt from Bourbon Barrels, which is ripe and succeeded.

      Fully ripe juice pear, then a trip to the carpenter workshop: wood dust, resin, citrus-based glaze, then back to the confectionery, pineapple cake, maybe on the tin before a toast Hawaii. Not stinging, yet time in and out helps a little distance from the glass significantly. But does not need water.

      Extremely silky and supple, I now have more fruit, a fruit salad with pomelo, apricots, pineapple and pear, the whole with a dash of lemon juice and honey refined. A few almonds are also included.

      Complex fruity-bitter interplay, which is becoming increasingly sophisticated, because the whole is very fine and balanced.

      Tutti frutti with beautiful oak. There are citrus notes and pineapple and some apple. Very well interwoven with the old oak.bourbon vanilla on tap. No alcohol at all, only if you keep your nose full in the glass. Very nice and round. The Bourbon barrel is clearly noticeable.

      Frutti oak. Super together. Reminds in places to the 29 glenturret. Yellow fruits but with more oak. Brilliant. No alcohol is disturbing. The nose does not disappoint. Something tobacco. A top price performance ratio. Urgent Buy Recommendations for Bourbon Bar Lovers. Very successful composition.

      White pepper from the oak comes through in the finish. No perennial finish but tasty. Not bitter ... just a slightly woody finish. Simply a super dramtic ...

      A bit tingling on the tongue, a lot of sweet and fruit, orange. Creamy structure. Later on some more grapefruit in the body as well.

      Still some pepper and a bit bitter fruity now, grapefruit, orange zest. Honey. Pretty long.
