This is finished in first fill Bourbon casks (#313972-83). It is extremely pale, but you should not judge a book by its cover. White fruits and light peat in the smell. Vanilla sweetness.

A bit more ‘umf’ in the taste. Nice and simple, with a punch of peat, and white fruits and vanilla on the side. The finish is a bit simple, with the peat and sweetness staying behind.

Unfortunately, the smell is a bit weak. The rest of the experience is actually quite nice. A simple whisky, that otherwise delivers what is it supposed to. Goes great with a dark beer! I will give this 83/100 (20/21/21/21).
