Nose: An initial blast of butter toffee and sweet honey gives way to crisp oak and barley malt.
Palate: Smoother than the initial nose would lead you to assume, with sweet fruit and blossoms at the forefront. With a small amount of citrus tucked away and solid tones of mature oak breaking through.
Finish: A pleasingly tangy citrus develops, with coffee shadowing the end.
Overall: The bourbon cask does its job admirably here, imbuing a sweetness that makes the oak and bite of the whisky a more nuanced and intriguing affair.
