Matured for nigh-on two decades, this is a fruit-dominant Bw bottling from a pair of ex-bourbon hogsheads. Perhaps the best Bw so far.
Five refill hogsheads, two from 1995 and three from 1996.
Equally balanced between fresh lemon and orange notes and smoke. There is some smoked-fish aromas, too, along with savoury olive tapenade and pineapple.
Lime zest and citrus fruits merging with light peat smoke and more tropical fruit. Strong emphasis on the fruit with this dram.
The fruit outweighs the smoke, with a dry note right at the death.
