Bourbon hogshead 2767 – 60.3%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Pale straw
Nose: Vanilla, polished wood, candied pineapple, banana, hints of toasted nuts and nutmeg.
Palate: Pineapple, banana in honey, candied lemon zest, custard, hazelnuts, nutmeg and black pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: Don’t be fooled by the pale colour, this is a very flavourful dram. It needs a little time to open up but it is a lovely whisky.
Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012 where it won a bronze medal, re-tasted for notes.
