Review #706 (2018)
This is from a first fill ex-Bourbon barrel – or two to be precise – with the cask numbers 808846 & 808851. Only 552 bottles were made. Quite a few things are happening on the nose! Creamy vanilla, oak and some tropical fruits.
Wonderful first fill ex-Bourbon barrel notes at first in the taste! Burned oak and vanilla, just like it is supposed to be! The majority of flavours might die out a bit fast in the finish, but you are still left with some great flavours in the end for quite a while!
This must have been some good casks! A lot of flavour for such young whisky! Not very often you come across these low age statement whiskies with so much flavour, and that is fantastic! Age is NOT everything – cask is KING! I will give this 84/100 (20/22/21//21).
