    Beautiful, delicious ex-bourbon whisky.
    Unfortunately only slightly more intense than the 12 single barrel. I hoped for more. The surcharge is therefore only of limited value.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Soft and gentle, fresh summer start, immediately a full citrus note comes over, plus vanilla and a slightly sour touch of grapefruit / limes. Some malt with fresh bread dough comes through. With a little time, light grassy notes with fruity components come to apple. Alcohol doesn't really stand out.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Oily, soft, creamy, light tingling. Subtly spicy, malty, fruity like apple and light grapes. More vanilla and citrus. Dry with something like marzipan and caramelized sugar.
      A tasteful oak flavor sets a good contrast.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long finish, dry with vanilla and limes and a slightly sweet finish.
