[edit: The nose has improved *a lot* after the halfway mark. This one loves air.]
Orchard fruits at first, mainly the typical Glenfiddich apples & pears, followed by darker, oakier notes: nutmeg, fudge, oiled hardwood, and a bit of barrel char. Simple and easy but very expressive and fragrant, not shy at all.
[Edit: went from 85 to 87 points after a while in the opened bottle. Exposure to air makes the bourbon barrels – and I guess the virgin oak as well – stand out more with extra creaminess and oiliness.]
Full-on fruit (see above), almost like an Irish whisky, with a spicy kick from the oak that makes it seem more like 46 than 43 percent. The virgin oak really is making its presence felt. Coriander, cumin, cinnamon: quite a few spices with „C“.
Wood spice and naturally cloudy apple juice, basically. Perhaps simpler than you would hope for in a 14-year-old, but nicely balanced between marzipan sweetness, zingy oak, and fruity acidity.
