- Light, sweet, vanilla, coconut. In the mouth, however, a beautiful substance, oily, mouth-filling, sweet, creamy. The finish is a bit graining, but clearly single grain. Summer dram, simple but not bland. I like it.
- 33 days after unscrewing and first tasting. It shows a clearly positive development, is now more full-bodied, smoother and more interesting
lots of corn, sweetness with vanilla and caramel, notes of glue alongside. Very bourbon-like, which should also be due to the five-year maturation in first-fill bourbon barrels
Clearly the best: creamy and oily in the mouth. Sweetness, corn, bourbon influences, caramel. Then there is also a bit of peppery seasoning that goes well with the corn sweetness. Easy and good to drink
Short to just medium. Sweetness and spice, but now the alcohol influence and the grain bitterness come out clearly.
Whilst beer is the most consumed alcoholic beverage in South Africa, whisky is the most popular spirit with brandy coming in second. Andy tells me 80% of the whisky produced in SA is consumed there. [Apparently cider production & consumption is also extremely lively too].
C: Very clean, quality bartender-friendly spirit.
