    SMWS.com.au notes:

    Clean and innocent

    Colour: Innocent blonde

    Nose: The first whiff gives loads of carrot cake. Then comes one of the most complex noses that offers up a plethora of aromas, all of them vanilla/bourbon-cask based: Fresh bamboo, pistachio ice cream, almond biscuits, custard apple, and pecan pie. Then the other signature fruit and spice notes emerge: Roasted butternut pumpkin, apricots, kumquats, and the like. A gorgeous whisky to nose.

    Palate: “yum” and “Wow” were such strong convictions, they were the first words we wrote down. Descriptors included delicious oak notes, toasted grain, silky malt, soothing, relaxing, balanced, integrated, and “mellow, but SO flavourful”!

    Finish: “it’s a medium-long finish that is slow and unhurried; relaxing and unwinding. it packages up all the best bits of the nose and palate, and just plays them out for ages in a Classic hits rendition”.

    Comments: “One of the most softest and soothing drams i can remember. Velvet in texture, it caresses your mouth & strokes you to sleep with gorgeous flavours” wrote the Cellarmaster. “A masterclass in bourbon cask maturation” wrote TC, continuing with “one to take on to the Ark”.

    SMWS UK Tasting Panel:

    The nose inspired sweet descriptors
    (meringue, barley sugars, toffee, crème brûlée) and woody references
    (tea chests, sawdust, polished Steinway) – also leather, lemon zest,
    elderflower and vanilla – clean and innocent. With water, some perfume
    and tropical mix appeared. The unreduced palate had clove and nutmeg
    spice, sugar-coated fennel seeds and old-style wooden toys ... more
    perfumed with water, we found orange blossom, suntan oil, guava, mango,
    peach and Cadbury’s creme eggs. The finish was long-lasting – like the
    memory of a first kiss. Made by sixteen men.
