Miltonduff 18 yo, ANHA, 58%, 1995, Bourbon Barrel
Color: intense amber, blatant for a bourbon barrel
Nose: Pure: very intense full, ripe fruit, there is blood orange, apricot from the tin, applesauce with cinnamon. Vanilla pudding with honey joins in. A very intense scent! With water: more spices, herbs, the fruit comes back a bit, he is well.
Taste: Pure: pleasant onset, immediately liqueur-like creamy honey sweetness, blackberry jam and afterwards beautiful slightly bitter orange. Fat, and super drinkable! With water: now sharper start, still very fruity, but here also more oak flavors, light soup spice note that is washed by the fruits. Interesting.
Finish: very long and more and more wood, good!
Comment: Pure an incredible fruit bomb, that was a very active barrel. The color is also extremely dark for bourbon ripening. Very tasty and pure better than with water. But you should play with it to tickle out even more interesting flavors! Horny part!
