    • Nose
      Initially smelled like a glass of bourbon, all vanilla and caramel and very rich. With time, the fruit arrives, with hard fruits like apples and pears along with the soft stone fruits like peaches and apricots. There is also some nice sweet citrus in there. A little more time brings some floral elements and some grassiness, all tied together with a lovely dairy element, think butter and cream cheese. This one needs some time in the glass to reveal its secrets.
    • Taste
      This really shows off what a wonderful ex-bourbon cask can do, the caramel and vanilla is fantastic, but not overwhelming. Worther's Originals, lightly toasted marshmallows, vanilla bean gelato along with some darker notes like Mackintosh toffee and some milk chocolate. Like with the nose, time brings out other elements, with freshly cut hay, apple cider, some prosciutto, ricotta, peppercorns and cinnamon hearts. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with only a tingle of alcohol to remind you you're drinking whisky. Everything is very well balanced and perfectly integrated.
    • Finish
      Very long and nice and warm. Things cycle through the sweet, savoury, and spicy before settling in on a nice mellow caramel sweetness that lasts a very long time. There's a nice underlying minerality throughout that ties everything together and keeps things integrated. Everything is in balance and working in unison, it's really a wonderful experience.
