Review by Glengoyne

Nose

Enticingly malty with apple pie, peach, vanilla, nutmeg and white chocolate

Palate

Thick rounded mouthfeel, buttery toffee popcorn, banana, soft oak and fruit

Finish

Long with summer fruits, digestive biscuit and kiwi.

Note

Bottled at the strength it emerges from the cask, this delicious amber gold dram is un-chillfiltered, unfussed and untamed; the closest youll get to opening the cask yourself. A peppery tingle gives way to rich flavours of ripe banana, digestive biscuits and cinnamon. Matured in one third sherry casks, two thirds refill casks and a smattering of bourbon barrels. Big and bold with a gloriously thick mouthfeel and a delightful, lingering, oak-infused finish.

First Fill Sherry 29% (EU oak 13%, US oak 13%, non-specified 3%) - First Fill Bourbon 16% - Refill 55%
