      Sweet. Lovely. -reminds me of licking on a red brick. Wow! What a mouth-full, gentle with sand-cookies. Real waxy, oily, with a touch of tira-misu.

    Nose: 24 years in ex-bourbon did this liquid good: A lovely sweet fruity nose on this one, with lots of vanilla, oak – the good kind (Bert mentioned in his presentation that when the whisky has nice wood notes he calls its ‘oak’ and when it’s too woody, he calls it ‘Wood’, a rather nice notion which i quite agree with). Banana on top of vanilla Ice Cream, mango lassi, and baked peaches. When the fruity whiff subsides, there’s also some floral and gentle edge to it, with soft spices.

    Palate: The ABV feels right, it’s not fierce, but very gentle and classy,oily and complex, with more sweet notes of fruit, baked peaches, pears, apples, ripe blood oranges, vanilla custard, and lots of oak as well, quite syrupy at times but also full of spice. very good.

    Finish: Medium-long with the ripe oranges and spices going quite a long way, oak too.
