    My sample is from a bottle that was handfilled in March, 2019 by a friend. Since there are various bottling years (2015-2019) for this cask, I wonder if the cask was at the shop for all those years... I can't imagine a good cask like this would last that long at the shop.

      Fresh, vibrant, and full of fruits. A bit spirity though, but we are off to a good start.

      Yup, lots of fruits here. The mouthfeel is thinner than what I would like, and it's slightly wild and spirity, and somewhat less refined, but at 57.5%, it provides a real punch in the face. It's also spicy, perhaps from combination of high ABV and also too much oak.

      Lingering fruits and spiciness. Not sure what the price is at the distillery shop. Would have purchased a bottle or three.

      Score would have been easy 90 points if not for the oakiness. If this cask was first made available at the shop in 2015, maybe it would have been less oaky back then. Would love a try the 2015 version of this cask for comparison.
