Review #285 (2016)

This is bottled in 2014 and is matured in American oak barrels. First in the smell I get some sweet vanilla and some honey just to make it extra sweet. Some light fruity notes in the background. Mostly like sweet caramelized desert pears.

Sweet again in the taste but with the fruits standing more out. In the finish, which is sweet but not too long, some more oaky notes appear. It tastes very young, but it doesn’t matter in this whisky. It delivers exactly what it is supposed to do!

This is just a nice sweet gentle dram. Everybody can enjoy this one. Do yourself the favor and add some water. Lot of things happen in both the smell and the taste. I will give this 84/100 (21/22/21/20).
