    Here you get exactly what you would expect from a first-fill bourbon barrel: vanilla, caramel, fruit and floral notes. The finish is very oak-heavy, for some it could be too much, I personally like this tangy-tangy contrast in the finish.
    • Nose
      Immediately very strong vanilla and caramel, with coconut and almonds. Behind it floral notes reminiscent of flowers and grass, as well as green bananas and floury apples. The oak spice can also be guessed at in the nose. The nose offers exactly what you would expect from a first-fill bourbon barrel maturation, very pleasant.
    • Taste
      Mild and extremely creamy on the tongue with vanilla pudding and a little orange and apple. Shortly afterwards, the oak comes through with a lot of flavor, which means that the malt does not appear too flat or watery despite the low alcohol content.
    • Finish
      Nice, oak-accentuated spiciness with apple and almonds and again lots of vanilla, caramel and coconut. The spice remains on the palate for a long time together with dry, bitter tones.
