Nose : Starting off very sweet on the nose with honey and golden syrup , a certain waxiness, vanilla and wood chips with some coconuts. Text book Bourbon cask influence, and a marvelous fragrant nose it is! Natural whisky, no sherry, but so luscious.Excellent bourbon influence. Vibrant and inviting. Classic stuff.Palate : Vanilla galore, with fruity yumminess of apples and pear under a chocolate coating. Rather Sweet and fresh with wood spices : cinnamon, nutmeg and hints of white pepper.Finish: A gentle spiciness complimented by wood spices and chocolate / cocoa powder.Bottom line:This is an Excellent whisky, from nose to palate and finish.
