N: Sweet & easy on fruity > dunnage, the fruits & barley abundant and integrated.
T: Expecting it to be richer, it arrives thinner than expected [40% !], with a coppery barley thinnish chew. It is again, well integrated with firm bourbon-cask action, though it’ll be a cask mix no doubt.
F: Lifts-off clean.
C: Strong form throughout, though it tells a common story of nose over palate over finish. At the time, £176 [MoM], but now you’re looking at an alarming £430 from WDF [Jan ’19].
