T: Its one of those modern, green-woody numbers. but with the peppery, vibrant beginnings soften over time. The 1st fill ex-bourbon cask maintains the spirits’ rawness but given time, nice creamy, bitty caramel develops. with mocha. To be clear however, its never that sweet and the fresh oak continues to depart its activeness without the complexity or depth of field from older vintages.
F: Creamy, fresh, nutty caramel as expected. Finishes savoury and a little Scapa like.
C: Its ok. Reminds me of the Linkwood 1998 WB, but hopefully without the headaches.
