Refill hogshead – 47.6%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: After a short while a delightful mix of tropical fruit emerges from the wooden dephths, along with almonds and mild spices.
Palate: Papaya, mango, pineapple, vanilla, toasted nuts, hints of camphor, later a lot of wood tannins join in.
Finish: Long, fruity and dry.
Overall: The fruity flavours of this old malt are wonderful but the wood has already left a noticeable footprint.
Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
