    [April, 2017]  I had this during a charity tasting at Limburg.  The colour is jonquiripe corn and the texture shows a few fast legs and late fat tears.  The nose is a full load of this lovely OBF (old bottle flavour) and vanilla.  Later some hints of peat and cooked fruits pop up.  The mouthfeel is warming, a little peppery but coats just the tongue.  The palate is quite one-dimensional on a bourbon cask-driven profile (vanilla sweetness), just very little peaty/smokey and wooden flavours.  The finish is rather short and adds no new impressions.

    All in all a beautiful dram to nose that needs quite some time to open up.  The rest is nothing to remember by tomorrow night...
