    Wow just after 443 this one is much more on tropical fruits and almost equally brilliant

    Very impressive! These Local Barleys from the Bourbon Oak are much different than the ones from the Sherry Casks (441, 442, 443). It's more comparable to the Local Barley 1967 (648 bottles) or 1970 (Cask 1766). This one is much drier and cleaner than the others, means not grassy and not dirty.
    Because of the cask strength it can take much water which unleashes its full potential. This is really great stuff!
    • Nose
      So fresh, rich, complex, tropical fruits, ripe bananas, pineapples, mangos, passion fruit, vanilla, toffee, little citrusy too - Great!
    • Taste
      Punchy, punchy, punchy - wow! After the first attack it is very oily, thick and creamy. Shoe polish, furnitures, citrus fruits, nice oak wood, subtle sweetness.
      With water it gets a much nicer sweetness, with sweet fruits like pears and strawberries and there is now also a clear Bourbon vanilla note. Excellent!
    • Finish
      Long and burning, it's just little zesty and there are green bananas. With water it becomes very smooth in the end.
