Taken from an active 1st fill bourbon barrel, this has a deep gold colour with mild beading. A surprisingly mellow nose for one so strong, reminiscent of sun-kissed, peeling yacht varnish and bath salts. Overall, a very fresh and rounded nose. Extremely sweet to taste, with a buttery and herbal complexity. Smoldering moss and scented fires on the open moor give way to dried herbs and sphagnum moss. The fragrant smoke continues with the addition of a little water, and a thick mouth texture, both smooth and rich, finishes sweet and long.
