- Tasted blind
Mild and balanced. Vanilla, sweet fudge, mild wood, soft leather, pleasant fruitiness in the background.
Unfortunately not as fine as the nose. Sweet - sour, you could call it immature oranges. A decent portion of wood, which is mitigated by the low ABV. Corn, a little herbs, caramel from the charcoal and leather.
Long and dry, slightly fruity with caramel and leather.
- Had the chance to try this today, fantastic! Went to let the owner of
this liquor store try the Balvenie tun 1401 #3 and he pulled this out.
He said it was given him to try from a friend from Scotland. I Liked it
and haven`t tried any of these before, well done!
