    Good stuff and also one of the darker ex-bourbon bottlings. Lighly fruity on the nose with lots of vanilla cream and pleasant oak, creamy arrival, substantial oakiness, but not many bitter notes. Rather long finish, oaky with a bit of heather and spices.
    Takes a notch of water very well, but gets slight off notes with a generous splash. Benefits from air exposure which irons out some spikes present at first.
    Trivia: This cask is even a notch darker than the very light 15yo Sherry Single Barrel No. 2035.
