At £40 this is simply a no-brainer. Adding extra wood maturation simply makes the interplay between wood and grains more indulging. However, it’s overly woody and even a touch astringent when on rock.
[78-82] I'll gladly welcome another dram.
Very aromatic, if I hadn’t tasted whole wheat whiskey before I would’ve guessed it was from rye. Dark chocolate. Toasted oak. Rich vanilla pod. Corns dipped in caramel.
Spicer than usual bourbon with more crushed peppercorn and nutmeg. Wood is prominent here and creates a touch of bitterness around the edges. Espresso beans. Toasted corns. Wheat's lovely aroma again. A touch of malt tagged along but slightly masked.
Mid, a bit dry finish. Again wood, vanilla and toasted spices lingering.
