This whisky is called “Limbo, mambo, bomba” and comes from a 1st fill ex-Bourbon barrel. Only 234 bottles were made. Full of flavours in the smell. Over ripe pears, baked apples and coconut.

If the smell was full og flavours, the taste is a burst of flavours! Baked white fruits, oak, spices, pineapple – and I could go on! The finish is long and turns very sweet, but still with all the lovely flavours just behind the sweetness.

If you just get the right cask, you don’t need many years to make an absolutely fantastic whisky, and this is a living proof of that! So much flavour already at age 9. The name is spot on, and really gives this feeling. I will give this 91/100 (22/23/22/24).
