Refill bourbon barrel 5750 – 49.9%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Light wood smoke, bee’s wax, honey, hints of pineapple, vanilla, hints of camphor and pepper.
Palate: Fairly strong peat, very herbal upfront, then vanilla and honey with hints of mixed tinned fruit, candied ginger and a hint of pepper.
Finish: Long, herbal and slightly fruity.
Overall: The herbal peatiness makes for quite an unusual whisky style with the wood remaining very much in the background. It tastes quite odd on the first sip but it grows on you and greatly benefits from a splash of water.
Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
