64.56 - 64.58 - 64.61 - 64.67
N: Creamed coconut and caramel, coconut husks, vanillas & limes with an aged tequila woodiness and some leathery maltiness. The wood seems far maturer or at least more controlled in comparison to cask 64.56 WB, another first fill 13yo.
T: Works neat at first, but soon gets too large. It works just fine with water however. The maltiness is equal to the fruits with a moderately chewy, sugary mouthful. Theres plenty of hot black pepper sprinkles from the cask here at the apex.
F: Candied notes, vanillas, more caramel, soft toffee, single cream and white butter with a little sugar, butterscotch and aniseed. There are more vanilla and cashew nut butters at the last.
C: Rather controlled dram for a first fill with more cooperation between it and the spirit than the 64.56. The thorn is at the top end of the palate, but again - this cask should reap more rewards next time around.
