Bourbon hogshead 4560 – 55%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Stewed apples, lime, butterscotch, candied ginger, hints of polished wood.
Palate: Apples, sweet melon, hints of banana, fudge, walnuts, ginger, pepper and hints of nutmeg.
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: If you give this dram some time and a few drops of water, the initial shyness is soon forgotten. Delicate fruitiness paired with robust spice
Rating: 88/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
