In the mouth: oily, sparkling, pricklig-sharp onset, then sweetness, behind creamy-almond-marzipanig, Ferrero Raffaello, light spice (hazelnut, nutmeg) in conjunction with floral notes, exotic fruits (almost in the direction of Madeira, like at the Teeling Single Malt or Bushmills 21) and a touch (actually only a hint) of coconut. The last three points closely intertwined, probably owing a considerable share of first-fill ex-bourbon barrels.
Finish: light oak with almonds and sweet cream. Medium long, definitely longer than one would expect at ten years (and without smoke).
Conclusion: Refined and robust at the same time. As a metaphor: a light summer dress under which a surprisingly muscular body hides.
