    The Grain rating comes through brutally, but it's a very good grain. I also feel a bit of smoke. Maybe the first barrel was an ex-Islay. The finish is not overloaded, though the color suggests it. That's a good thing. Otherwise you would not notice the Grain, even if you just feel like it. My best grain until now. Just a bit too peppery on the palate, as is often the case with young intensively matured grains, otherwise it is better than the 30 and 40 year old grains that I know. In the foreground you have the blackberry, which is usually found in old ex-bourbons. Here, the blackberry is sweeter.
