...that is a perfect mid-summer night companion, greatly balanced and full of harmony - but no "oompf" or taste sensations, just a brilliant composed drinker's dram. So enjoy it without "analysis paralysis" - that's what is was made for...
The colour is jonquiripe corn and the texture shows slow legs and fat tears. The nose offers an old style barley-driven profile which is pleasantly against the current heavy (virgin) oaky bourbon-ish trend. I really like that (and to me it is much more quaffable than the bitter and astringent modern "woodsky" style).
The taste is barley sugary driven with nice fruity and floral flavours. No distracting or unpleasant notes, but more wooden structures than in the nose. Really nice, and as expected water is not needed as it flattens somewhat this beautiful composition.
The initial mouthfeel is warming and instantly coats the whole of the mouth - great spirit! The finish is long and without any bitter or astringent or drying moments, simply adorable...
