    [November, 2018] I had this dram during a Cadenhead warehouse tasting that was rather disappointing compared with previous ones. While some time ago they offered real gems during the warehouse experience and you could walk all through the warehouse from cask to cask nowadays all offered casks are stored right at the warehouse entrance. And the selection of casks is rather average only, no real gems anymore but second or even third-tier distilleries and pretty young stuff (like this one)...

    ...and it is what it is: A young whisky from a third-tier distillery that is both flawless and unimpressive. Nothing you would ask for (if you were asked before) and most probably nothing you will buy (after you are asked for that). By the way, this whisky matured in a bourbon hogshead before it was re-casked into a sherry hogshead in August 2017.
    • Nose
      85 85
      The colour is old gold and the nose offers a flawless fruity (apples) bourbon profile with some minor sherry aromas. It is pretty fresh (young) and without any further complexity but still nice to sniff...
    • Taste
      85 85
      The taste is fruity (apples, pears) and sugary sweet with minor wooden notes. Actually, there is not much more - a very simple and straight-forward dram without flaws but without highlights too. Water turns the taste even sweeter and reduces the slight drying-astringent feeling in both mouthfeel and finish. I like it best when reduced to about 40% abv.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The initial moouthfeel is warming but not really coating and shows a minor drying-astringent feeling (plastics). The finish is rather short and adds no new impressions beside a minor plastic astringent feeling again.
