    Takes getting used to, but not surprising either.
    As an absolute minority phenomenon, this whisky ONLY matured in fresh Virgin Oak barrels, i.e. without pre-allocation.

    The score of 86 is therefore to be understood very relatively, within comparable Virgin Oak Whiskys, which also ONLY matured in fresh oak barrels without any pre-allocation.

    A comparison was made with, for example

    Benromach Organic 2011/18 43% (predecessor)
    Auchentoshan Virgin Oak Batch 2 46%
    Glen Garioch Virgin Oak 48%

    The Benromach 2012/20 with 46% was my winner from this comparison with regard to the desired expression of the wooden barrel.
