    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.
