Review #??? (2015)

It is called ’Posh ladies on the prom!’ and only 209 bottles were made from a Refill Ex-Bourbon Hogshead. Lots of peppermint (like After Eight) on the nose. Little by little you start to get grapes, oranges and filled chocolates. Simply excellent!

The taste is fresh. I would like to say light fresh sherry if that term existed! Kind of the expression you get from Fino Sherry casks, but still lighter end more fresh. The finish is a bit sweet with hints of fresh fruits. Mostly apples.

This whisky is just great with a fine balance and complexity. The taste and finish is fine as well, but cannot live up to the smell which is absolutely beautiful. I will rate this 90/100 (24/22/21/23).
