    2nd fill ex-bourbon 15yo

    Really goes to show an independent bottler can pick a great cask from a crap distillery.

    This is one of the best whiskies I've ever had. Beguiling. So intense. The finish is magnificent, the transition from sweet to slight bitter over time, what a journey.

    I've bought every bottle I could of this (5). I've got one unopened, and I treasure it. 
    • Nose
      Super, sun cream, sweet tobacco, fruits
    • Taste
      Terrific, grapefruit and tobacco 
    • Finish
      Magnificent, long lasting, intense, evolving.

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Flavour Profile: Sweet, Fruity & Mellow

    Colour: Bronzed Gold

    The nose was all over the place – which made it interesting – Crunchie bars, sweet balsamic, sun cream, tobacco, eucalyptus, scented smoke, furniture shops and lumber yards. The palate was certainly unusual – starting with sweet exotic fruits but quickly shifting to menthol and tobacco, pepper and fresh cut logs – earthy, sweet and hot. The reduced nose was a builder’s tea break – Daim bars, custard creams and bourbon biscuits with wood and silicon sealant in the background. The palate now returned more emphatically to the pleasant tropical fruits, summer cream sweets, grape juice, grapefruit and watermelon, with peppery salad leaves on the side.

    Drinking tip: When you fancy something different or slightly enigmatic.
