- Beautiful whisky.
- Blenders Glass.
Sweet aroma, vanilla, butter cream, honey, candy (toffee), sweet yellow fruits, slightly spicy 23
Sweet taste, vanilla, pastry, a lot of honey, slightly peppery 23
Medium finish, oak, pepper, honey and mint, with a herbal bitterness at the very end 22
Molt is ready to eat right away. There is no need to dance around him - pour and drink. A good example of modern whisky.
- 24 years in a first fill bourbon barrel is a long time, and even though the expected vanilla and oak are very present there is still plenty of fruitiness to a go around to make this a very pleasant whisky.
This is less complex than I hoped for, but also less oaked than I feared. If you enjoy bourbon barrel maturation this is a classic and very good example.
