Beautifully balanced between maturity and seasoning on tap, youthful freshness, Bourbon Fassreifung and sherry Fassreifung. Round, harmonious, complex. A dream!
In the finish then spicy and bitter. A full load of tannins and unfortunately nothing more. This is too violent and gives point deduction.
Too bad, without the disturbing departure it would have been an absolutely perfect whisky.
